Giving Simon a rest

For many days now I had been wondering whether the Sydney Daily Telegraph still had Simon Benson as its state political editor as he failed to be the author of any stories I could list on my blog of what the papers say. He missed out on the news pages again this morning as the paper continues to steer away from the outrageously over the top kind of reporting that coincided with a falling circulation. When Big boobs are not a sickness is the top of the paper's most read list it tells you that your clients are unlikely to be all that interested in the comings and goings of politicians. But at least political editor Benson was allowed to join the Tele's columnist Piers Akerman this morning in serving up the kind of analysis that does no harm on an editorial page that proper Telegraph readers would not turn to in a fit anyway.
