Introducing the Daily Trash!

June 18, 2012

With Fairfax today announcing that both highly-esteemed broadsheets The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald will be transformed into “tabloids” (who TF came up that idea, Gina?), the International Media Conglomerate Publishing House and Consortium Partners Limited of Gutter Trash Enterprises have today launched a new online Australian publication “The Daily Trash” to protect and maintain our massive market share in this competitive space as an aggressive pre-emptive strike.

The Daily Trash, building upon the highest standards of journalism, ethics and integrity as championed by our TV offshoots A Current Affair and Today Tonight is determined to bring our discerning readers with the calibre of indepth news and reporting that only true news junkies can appreciate..

Already our international editorial team of commission-only, work-experience, Bangladeshi contractors are working on the following stunning cutting edge editorial exclusives:

“Delta Goodrem. Why is she such a pain in the arse?”

“Milo. Why it’s Killing You and Your Family”

“Foreigners:  Why they’re Stealing all our Jobs”

Here’s what our already many satisfied customers and loyal subscribers are already saying…

“If I only I had heard about The Daily Trash months ago.  It shits all over News of The World.    Got any jobs…?”  ~ Rebekah Brooks

    Clearly this is the future of journalism. I take it someone leaked the new Fairfax business plan and you’ve jumped in first, reb. Sadly, you don’t have to sack a pack of bleating lefty journos. To bolster the “trash” credentials I’d like to volunteer to do an occasional column on crafty farts and other anal prevarications as related to me by celebrity gerbil (and long time resident of Wayne Swan’s rectum) Garry Gritter.

    ‘In the end, the gutting of Australia’s oldest newspaper mastheads came swiftly.

    ‘Staff wept at their desks, printers were told their jobs would be gone within two years, editors shook their heads at cuts so severe that management had not briefed them, and a generation of journalists stared into the face of a reality more than a decade in the making.’

    and you’ll hear a plea for dignity in a life without.
    It’s near midnight on Saturday Night.
    These sad clowns will chatter till Sunday morning light.
    We’re common. We’re desperate..
    We’ll do this our own way.
    We grew up strong in these humble streets.
    We worked all week and we’re drinking tonight.
    There’s no end in sight in these humble streets.
    Methamphetamine still rampant.
    Churches and bars are full but the library is vacant.
    Baby faced veterans and factory men
    singing the same jukebox songs with bottles stuck to their lips.
    So many children raised on welfare and T.V.
    It’s easy to see how the circle remains unbroken.
    And I am one of the lucky ones…
    We’re common. We’re desperate.
    We’ll do this our own way.
    We grew up proud in these humble streets.
    We can work every day. Watch T.V. every night.
    There’s no end in sight in these humble streets.
    But I’m just singing my cheap white boy blues.
    When I get back home I’ll be drinking right next to you.
    We’re Common. We’re Desperate.
    I’ll do this my own way.
    Wherever I may roam this is where I remain.
    And I belong to these humble streets.

    ‘PETER KENNEDY: The Independent was set up in 1969 as a Sunday paper by Lang Hancock and Peter Wright and it was essentially set up under the editorship of Maxwell Newton, who’d edited the Financial Review and The Australian.

    ‘It was set up essentially because Lang Hancock felt he wasn’t getting his point of view across, particularly in Western Australia. He was at odds with Sir Charles Court, who was minister for industrial development. He didn’t think he was getting a good enough run in the local press and so he thought he’d start his own paper.’

    I’m all for anything, like Wikileaks, that exposes the secret machinations of governments. There are very few things in peacetime that can justifiably be kept secret from the people. Why should a self-governing democracy have agencies that keep information from the very people they are there to serve and who allow them to exist?

    I’d just be repeating (‘scuse the pun) myself … thanks for providing the statistical evidence for my anecdotal observations about our INCREASED weapons related crime rate across Australia … the cops can’t be everywhere and the crims know that …

    As I said even fkn paintball weapons are banned … I played paintball a couple of years ago and took six hits … I’m still here …

    What a nation of precious pansies we’ve become …

  99. June 20, 2012 1:05 pm

    Yeah, I know TB. But to me it’s primarily a matter of freedom. If crime stats are lower as a result of more relaxed gun laws then that’s an added side benefit in my book. And I condemn John Howard for what he did. Liberal? Don’t make me laugh. That was an action any big-government nanny-stater would be proud of.

  102. June 20, 2012 1:54 pm

    I dunno, as someone who can’t fight his way out of a paper bag, I reckon if I owned a gun I might have used it once or twice. I’m not a fan of gun ownership.

    Interesting anecdote……

    Some 20 years ago a mate and I used to head up to the snow in his Dad’s old Range Rover. To save on accomodation we’d sleep in the back of the Range in a back street in Mansfield. One night a fair sized gang of drunks happened upon us “poofters’ and decided to make an issue of it. It was getting pretty serious and there was little doubt in my mind that we were going to cop a fair old beating.

    Next thing my mate pulls a .22 out from under the front seat and points it….”FUCK OFF, I MEAN IT!” “SHIT, HE’S GOTTA GUN!!” And they scattered. It was the hardest I have ever laughed although we were pretty quick to make our exit outta there.

  103. June 20, 2012 2:06 pm

    That’s a very compelling argument for gun ownership, James. Having a gun saved your skin and reduced the crime rate.

  104. June 20, 2012 2:43 pm

    Well it’s an example, Tony. I’m not sure it’s a compelling argument. I doubt all the good guys will rush out and buy guns if they’re legal but I’d bet all the bad guys will. I doubt the firepower will be tipped in the good guys favour, although it was on that occasion.

  105. June 20, 2012 3:22 pm

    Holy crap…has the Earthquake jolted us into the twilight zone!? 😯

    I find myself strongly agreeing with Tony @ 10:20am, and then James @ 2:43pm.

  106. June 20, 2012 3:23 pm

    “What a nation of precious pansies we’ve become …”

    Conversely, I’m inclined to think that a pansy is someone who thinks that they need a firearm to ‘feel’ safe.

  107. June 20, 2012 3:47 pm

    I don’t want a gun to feel safe. I’ve owned guns before, but don’t now. I don’t particularly even want a gun. What I do want is to be free to own one.

    If it’s a simple question of liberty, where do you draw the line? Should we all be free to collect land mines & rocket launchers?

  112. June 20, 2012 3:59 pm

    If in doubt I think we should err on the side of more freedom, not less, even if there are (perceived) risks involved.

    And fuck the moronic majminority. Imbeciles shouldn’t be the standard for law-making.

    ‘Should we all be free to collect land mines & rocket launchers?’

    Yes.

    Hmmm, you have more faith in humanity than I do, it would seem!

    I do agree that imbeciles shouldn’t benchmark the rest of us, but, in my eyes, lethal force is lethal force.

  116. June 20, 2012 4:18 pm

    ‘in my eyes, lethal force is lethal force.’

    It’s only lethal if you use it, and using it is illegal under most circumstances. We already had laws regulating gun use. Prohibition was superflous and penalised law-abiding citizens.

    *superfluous

  118. June 20, 2012 4:50 pm

    Imbeciles shouldn’t be the standard for law-making.

    But they are. If it wasn’t for imbeciles, we wouldn’t need ANY laws.

  119. June 20, 2012 4:54 pm

    One man’s imbecile is another man’s convenient justification!

    ‘But they are. If it wasn’t for imbeciles, we wouldn’t need ANY laws.’

    You sure about that?

    Hey, I’ve got a carbon complaint. is there a thread for that?

    no.

    Conversely, I’m inclined to think that a pansy is someone who thinks that they need a firearm to ‘feel’ safe.

    You’ve obviously never lived in PNG and seen the effects … nor been confronted here in Oz … three months after returning from PNG …

    I must say if you own a weapon you MUST be b prepared to use it … or it may be used agin ya!

    Whoo … you are bitchy tonight! Like a bird in cage … you are!

    (“They could make a movie out of this.”…

    The cities grew at a fabulous pace, some of them doubling in size every decade. By the 1920 census, the urban and rural populations were equal in size, but the rural share would continue to drop for the rest of the twentieth century. Cities became the location of most of American life: politically, culturally, financially, and economically, the action moved from the bucolic countryside to the crowded, filthy city streets.”)

    We don’t live in PNG though, TB.

    I accept that it may be more of a necessity there.

    I have been confronted here on occasion, certainly.

    I agree with this…”I must say if you own a weapon you MUST be b prepared to use it … or it may be used agin ya!”…& that’s part of the reason why I’m glad that the population isn’t armed.

    Four Positions Obama Supporters Attribute to the President That He Doesn’t Actually Hold:

    4. Barack Obama’s foreign policy is not as destructive as George W. Bush’s was (or Mitt Romney’s would be).

    3. Barack Obama’s immigration policies are compassionate and humane.

    2. Obama’s support for gay marriage is groundbreaking.

    1. Barack Obama will end the war on drugs, eventually.

    Just thought l’d let you lot know, Snacty is over worshiping at the shrine’s of Akerman and Bolt. He will probably be more ‘cosy’ over there with his own kind, in a cotton-wool environment, where ‘rabid’ lefty’s comments don’t see the light of day. But that’s OK, he was never really cut out for robust debate anyway. All we can do is wish him well from our ‘gloves-off’ soap box and hope like hell Tony hasn’t suffered the same fate.

    It seems that Gillard has again been caught out telling porkies. She seems to be hooked on lying, an affliction that she’s demonstrably had for a couple of decades.

    Incompetent and dishonest, that will be Gillard’s legacy.

    ”LAW firm Slater & Gordon has contradicted Julia Gillard’s claim that she was not in charge of legal work for the purchase in 1993 of a Fitzroy property later found to have been bought with stolen union money.
    Ms Gillard – a former salaried partner with the firm – last week denied responsibility for conveyancing work on the purchase of the Kerr Street unit by a crony of her disgraced former boyfriend Bruce Wilson.
    ”I was not in charge of the conveyancing file,” she told journalists during a visit to Laos.
    But Slater & Gordon managing director Andrew Grech has confirmed Ms Gillard ”acted directly” in the conveyancing work on the property purchase”
