Goodbye Editors

They're resigning like dying flies at Fairfax Media but I think they deserve credit for their jobs as editors.

Take the bloke who resigned from the Age today and once kept a straight face telling incredulous audience that his newspaper's coverage of the conflict between Israel and her Arab neighbours was honest and balanced.

Here's a sample of his editing work.

Stories like this one were routinely edited out of existence on his watch - Palestinian terrorists who killed dozens of civilians glorified in video by Palestinian national band on PA TV.

We're all really going to miss that sort of editing.
