What About Greg Sheridan?

The latest from The Australian's media editor, Sharri Markson:

"Media entrepreneur Eric Beecher said the rise of activism among journalists had highlighted the need for media organisations to form social media guidelines. While the profession once prided itself on objectivity and impartiality, there had been a rise in journalists, even political editors, expressing support for a political party or cause..." (Activism a threat to journalism, 1/9/14)

Markson cites the likes of Bernard Keane, Wendy Bacon, Margo Kingston and Mike Carlton, "all highly opinionated on political issues."

But really now, did she need to look for examples outside her own "highly opinionated" rag?

I can think of no better example of a political editor expressing support for a cause than international editor, Greg (Jerusalem Prize) Sheridan's long and steamy love affair with Israel.

To date, I've written 161 posts alone - surely some kind of record - on Greg Sheridan, most exposing his propaganda for the worse-than-apartheid state.
