“THE heartbroken stepdad of missing Boronia teen Siriyakorn “Bung’’ Siriboon has spoken about the “hole” she has left in his life, five years after her mysterious disappearance.”

I don’t know if the journo though they were being clever, they are stupid or just plain insensitive, but there you go.

This thread is a place for such abominations, of which there are plenty.

Today a high profile journalist slammed, shirtfronted, hit out at, took on, carried on like a boring ■■■■. In reality all he did was have a bit of a sook. You suck!

I wonder why people get into journalism. Is it because the arts degree was too hard?

Surely not deliberate. Surely.

Polarising highs and lows of Ben Cousins
AS his former Eagles teammates this week celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2006 premiership, Ben Cousins is recovering after again unravelling in public - just another part of his sad spiral.

Just the title. Cousins’ highs and lows are extreme, but I don’t think they are polarising. Polar? Polarised?
