oooops FAIRFAX is DEAD
Jan 31st, 2019 at 9:11am
 
https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/clementine-ford-sensationally-quits-n...

Controversial columnist Clementine Ford has sensationally quit Nine Newspapers, declaring Fairfax is “dead” in a lengthy Twitter rant.

The 38-year-old used kiss emojis with the words “Anyway, bye Fairf**ked!” to conclude several brutal tweets overnight.

“Also, here’s some tea and I can spill it now that I have resigned from Fairfax: in September, they threatened to fire me because I had called transphobic Scott Morrison a ‘f***ing disgrace’ on Twitter and they said that new policy was we ‘didn’t disrespect the office of the PM’,” she wrote.


Another one said: “I am not the only writer who’s had pieces knocked back that were critical of other news sources’ practices and elevating of bigotry. The reason? “We don’t criticise the competition.” And this too, which I heard consistently over the last year or 2: “When they go low, we go high.

“Fairfax is dead. That’s a fact,” another tweet said.

In May last year, the hard line feminist had her speech for a charity fundraiser cancelled after almost 14,000 people signed a petition against her appearance.

The outrage came after she tweeted “Kill All Men”, “All men must die” and “I bathe in male tears”.

Also in a since-deleted tweet, Ford called then-Treasurer Scott Morrison a “racist stain on humanity”

Last night, Ford called out her working conditions as “crappy.”

But maybe you do get to the point where you decide that your crappy salary with the crappy work conditions just isn’t enough to keep eating poo every week, and you decide that you would rather take the risk on not making rent next month just to not eat their poo again,” she wrote online.

This morning, Ford added she was not “difficult” during her seven years at the newspaper brand as she continued her overnight explanation of her resignation online.

“I expect at some point a line will be trotted out about how I was ‘difficult’. Don’t believe it,” she said.

“I was a loyal and committed contributor for 7 years and they benefited greatly from me being connected to the masthead.”

Nine announced its takeover of the Sydney Morning Herald last year as part of a $4 billion deal which saw the name “Fairfax” disappear from the nation’s media landscape.

The Daily Telegraph has reached out to Nine Newspapers for comment.





what is it about women  and HELL.. when they are "rejected"  they turn into vipers of the worst kind....

their language skills reach the bottom of all barrels...

looks like she was drunk.... if not god help anyone who lives with her.

No evidence whatsoever it can be attributed to George Orwell or Eric Arthur Blair (in fact the same guy)

'transphobic' - you aren't allowed a dissenting view these days without being called 'afraid' of something or a hater....  the most common nonsense trotted out is that those disagreeing are 'afraid of change'... WTF?  No change was on the cards until some clown thought it up... like canceling Australia Day to suit a whining minority... no change mooted other than in your head, dahlings...

You won't be missed, Clem.... adios... head for London with Yassmin ...

ooops...CLEMENTINE IS DEAD... by her own hand... didn't take a single white man with her, either....

Probably get a job on national TV ranting about men being killed.... it's sort of the Hitler thing - how to be noticed in Munich... jump up on a table in a beer hall, fire a pistol into the ceiling, and shout 'The Revolution Has Begun!'  Suddenly become 'relevant' and talked about... otherwise nobody would notice you at all...  Roll Eyes

Fairfax should not censor journalists from telling the truth....This Government is very sensitive about criticism and will spit the dummy if anyone points out their failings???

Good riddance to her departure. Fairfax should hire Sydney Watson or Daisy Cousens in her place.

Interesting fact: Fairfax was offered to purchase Seek in the early 2000's but rejected their purchase price. In 2018, Fairfax was purchased by the Nine Group for $2.16 Billion. Seek currently has a market capitalisation of $6 Billion.

And what Red says makes what she said OK? She's a self professed man hater, don't try and disempower her by being like the guy on the Gillette ad, touching her on the shoulder and saying... "I think she means..." You men and your toxic masculinity! Let her own her words.

What say ye about foul-mouthed unreasonable women who complain about workplace bullying, or domestic violence, cods?

Do we dismiss their allegations because they are foul-mouthed and unreasonable (in your eyes?)

I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
The day that I born (oh boy) my father nearly died
He couldn't get my nappies on, how matter how he tried
'cause I was born with an extra leg, and since that day begun
I had to learn to stand on my own three feet
Believe me that's no fun
I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
I had a dreadful childhood really, I s'pose I shouldn't moan
Each time they had a three legged race, I won it on me own
And also I got popular, when came the time for cricket
They used to roll my trousers up
And use me for the wicket
I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
I was a dreadful scholar, I found all the lessons hard
The only thing I knew for sure, was three feet make a yard
To count to ten I used me fingers, if I needed more
By getting my shoes and socks off
I could count to twenty four
