Weekend Punch: Relax, unwind and read this…
Bon Weekend! Here at The Punch, we know that journos writing about journos can be an awfully navel-gazing, tedious thing to do. That said, with all the changes announced at Fairfax and News Ltd this week, we pretty much broke that rule. Tory Maguire dived in, asking whether newspapers were on the way out. Four days later, Penbo said nup, no way, they’ll still be around for ages.
Tory Shepherd was busy raising hell with a few biblical phrases proving that God doesn’t care who marries whom, then for her sins spent a night on the streets, Ant wrote about rugby league hookers, hookers of a less sporting variety and discovered a revolution called the Julian Revolution in Ecuador.
And of course, as ever we tackled the really big issues. Like Joe Hildebrand on racism, and Steve Williams on whether it’s OK to use the phone on the dunny. Which by the way, it is isn’t. Enjoy the Weekend Punch. Lucy’s yarn on reading today is a great read in itself, and don’t forget to weigh in and tell us what’s rockin’ on down in your part of town.
