Egoagogo contributors failed to call for a refund on their campaign for ahem, ‘professional journalism’ in Scotland last night. Ho hum. Check out this blatant case of a criminal lack of self awareness. Now that’s what I call ahem, ‘professional journalism’.
APOLOGIES FOR the repetition readers. But this couldn’t be ignored. A prime example of Wangs Over Skintland’s irony deficiency, lack of self awareness, and ahem, ‘professional journalism’ cybernat style.
Hate preaching bigot, Rev Stu-pid Campbell highlights a hilarious typo* in the Herald and uses it to denigrate real ‘professional journalism’.
Oh my aching sides!
The Herald piece refers to an “East Lothian” question instead of the West Lothian question. Laff, I nearly pished mahsel dry.
And the Rev’s comment re: Magnus Gardham writing his column with crayons – the rapier wit is as sharp as a blunt thing – pity it only tells half the story.
Does that makes the Rev a half-wit? Answers written in crayon on a postcard please.
AhDinnaeKen regulars will be familiar with this laughable example of ahem, ‘professional journalism’ – the Rev’s basic schoolboy error in not knowing the difference between an Embassy and a Consulate.
If you’re not familiar, a brief reminder of the Rev’s pompous and sanctimonious factually incorrect bombast concerning embassies and consulates:
“We’re not sure how the UK manages to have 270 embassies and consulates when there are only 206 sovereign nations on the planet. It would seem that there might be grounds for some pruning to be done there.”
Now that’s what I call ahem, ‘professional journalism’.
I’m going to be kind again (don’t thank me Rev, I’m that way inclined) and provide some friendly advice:
If you’re going to set yourself up as a paragon of fair mindededness while mocking and denigrating others for mistakes and typos, it is IMPERATIVE that you don’t make the same kind of category errors yourself.
Otherwise, you end up looking like a moron – a tedious cretinous moron.
Consider this advice another gift – AhDinnaeKen is nothing if not charitably generous.
Meanwhile, the first comment on the Rev’s hilarious send up of the Herald’s error encapsulates the group delusion of the Wangs Over Skintland commenters:

* Of course it’s not an actual typo. But as anyone who’s ever been on tight writing deadline will tell you, errors like this crop up all the time. As easy a mistake to make as a typo. Whereas going to bat on embassies and consulates while being totally utterly and categorically wrong is a much more serious and basic schoolboy journalistic error to commit. Sanctimonious preaching tutorial over.
