Drunken Journalist

As some of you may already know, Crikey founder, Jeff Kennett hater and shareholding activist Stephen Mayne has been pushed off stage by a drunken Sunday Telegraph political columnist during the Walkley Awards (for journalism) ceremony.

Check out the footage here. Classic. I love Mayne's words after the altercation:

"I have an announcement to make on behalf of Rupert Murdoch. That is the former Sunday Telegraph political correspondent, Glenn Milne."

Bloody thuggish journalists.

Milne should've flattened the cunt.

yeah, it was quite amusing. Can't believe he blamed it on booze mixed with his medication, especially at his age.... Fool.

I heard Steve Cannane (JJJ/JTV Hack dude) won some award too. Good on him!

Nah, I'm a big fan of Mayne. He gives the rich bastards a hard time.

Also, I can't believe arrogant Tim Blair and co are calling Mayne a coward. Milne pushed him off the stage. What was he suppose to do? Belt him on TV? Plus, Milne is a stocky little dwarf.

Don't you worry Engels, Mayne's mum wrote into the Australian demanding Milne apologise to her baby boy.

Really, thought he apologised the day later. I read it in the smh. It must be true.

Though, Mayne did say on Crikey that Milne hadn't apologised. Meh.

If you watch the video, you'll notice Mayne wasn't pushed off stage. He jumped off way before the poison dwarf was even near him.

The footage I saw shows Milne pushing Mayne. And then mayne appears off stage. Milne might not have pushed Mayne off stage, but he pushed him nonetheless.
