You make some excellent points and daily journalism in many areas has become 40cm - or 450 words - and that is it.

There are three great stories to tell - The Compass /...

Missed a question

Q2: Why didn't I called the union?

Why didn't you call me? Everyone else does and I am not hard to find.

Correction

Hi All:

GT here. Just for the record that VB story or "beat up" did not come from Steve Creedy but another journo from the SMH. So you need to do some research on that.
