Time for Greg Sheridan to Move On?

It just keeps getting better and better at Murdoch's Australian:

"Renowned political journalist Simon Benson has joined The Australian as national affairs editor. A news breaker with a formidable range of contacts, Benson has routinely set the agenda on seismic political developments ranging from the Rudd coup to breaking the story of the bid to remove Tony Abbott. The award-winning journalist was national political editor at Sydney's The Daily Telegraph, where he spent more than two decades in senior positions, including NSW state political editor." (Benson national affairs editor, The Australian, 9/12/16)

But really, the Australian is being too modest with respect to Simon. His real forte is obviously foreign affairs:

"Like any normal Sydney family [the people of Sderot] worry about the rising cost of living - mortgage repayments, power prices, grocery bills. But they have an extra burden. Three kilometres away... is the city of Gaza, where 1.5 million Palestinian families live under the grip of terror imposed by Hamas and its jihad brigades intent on erasing the Zionists from the land they claim to be Palestine." (See my 19/11/12 post Israel Lobbyist Asks: Why do we bother?)

Look out, Greg Sheridan...
