2011 QUEENSLAND MEDIA AWARDS - JUDGES SNUB JOHN MACKENZIE WITH JUDGING COMMENTS REVEALED FOR FIRST TIME

Despite heavy lobbying by John MacKenzie and a handpicked cadre of supporters, the Queensland Media Awards snubbed both John MacKenzie's submitted on-air interviews, as well as his coverage of Cyclone Yasi earlier this year.


In a major gaffe, the judges comment sheets for the Cueball submissions have been revealed to the public.  MacKenzie has previously won awards for cyclone coverage in Cairns, however the judges found his Cyclone Yasi coverage "hysterical", "unfactual", "the radio equivalent of a hound baying at the moon", and with one judge claiming "he (Mackenzie) has the journalistic ethics of a slug".


This morning, MacKenzie continued his ineffectual campaign against native hunting when Big Cat General Manager Steve Davies related what he alleges are numerous criminal acts at Green Island that he (Davies) failed to report to the Queensland Police.   Ol' Cueball commented that his two years of yammering on this issue has resulted in nothing, and ironically Davies said he was calling in because "you're (MacKenzie) the only one doing anything".  In this case ANYTHING = NOTHING.  All because of MacKenzie's dodgy journalistic credentials.  As noted by his peers.


Sadly MacKenzie, who has seen his show deteriorate into the same handful of callers attacking the same tiresome issues, can't seem to garner an award for his morning on-air reading of the Cairns Post as "reading someone else's work" isn't an award category.  Sources at Prime Radio indicate that MacKenzie's days are numbered.  We respectfully point out "zed" is a number!

" - the journalistic ethics of a slug". Couldn't put it better myself.

I am offended. I have never met an unethical slug.

Cueball and Gobsnot on the other hand ...

Neither are true journalists - just opinionated commentators.

Shallow commentators who try to swim in the journalistic deep-end almost always drown.

Ok, in Cueballs case I have to admit that he has been doing it for years ... but eventally his floaties will burst . . .maybe it's the hot air that keeps him afloat.

I hope your Prime Radio source is correct.

On the upside Cueball actually does the public a service by keeping his audience of 300 twits off the streets for 3 hours each day - keeping them away from us. Geez, imagine bumping into Raj, Pearl or Dugong Man or any of the East Trinity rabble. I'm heartened to know that for 3 hours each day the racists and lunatics are safely inside.

It also seems the Cairns Post and Prime Radio are missing a sales opportunity - they should charge advertisers extra for Cueball to 'simulcast' all the ads on the pages of the paper while he reads the stories that fit his narrow agenda. . . how did Rupert miss that one! Must be age creeping up on him.

I had the misfortune to listen to rugnut's shitty program today, and alas I was not in a situation to switch the ranting drivel off. It must have been a repeat program from the Federal Election a couple of years back because it was the same ole same ole from sucky sucky Colin who cares and rugnut beating their chests and squeezing out mock tears over dugongs and turtles. Wonder what happened to their good mate Warren Entsch who they reckoned was gunna save them all? Havent heard anything from Entsch about the fucken turtles and dugongs since he was elected.

Entsch is part of what is known as "the heavy artillery" of life. He's a "gunna". He's "gunna" do this, he's "gunna" do that. Yeah, he's "gunna" alright. He makes a lot of noice, swaggers around, bellows, thumps the table with his fist, issues a string of spittle from his mouth and everyone thinks he is fair dinkum. He's done nothing since he was elected except to swan around socialising like Grandma and printing off his newsletters featuring himself at all these social functions. The only thing Entsch will do about the turtles and dugongs is to make a lot of noise and point his finger at someone. This has been his modus operandi ever since he was first elected.

Just opinionated commentators? What I see in both Mackenzie and King is their malignant narcissism where they believe they are the best people to run Cairns. Both have interfered and meddled with the Cairns Regional Council since the day it was elected. Both have driven a wedge into the Council itself and their relentless politicising has caused division and polarised the city to unprecedented levels. It is most likely the entire Council will be wiped out next election, due entirely to the hysterical hate campaign waged by these two. I hear people saying "ANYONE but...." and I cant help but feel uneasy. Terry Vance in his fiction blog "Cush over Cairns" has given an example of the type of Council we will get if people are all fired up with emotion when they vote. It's a very sobering thought in itself, however if the entire Council is dumped then that will only encourage the likes of rugnut and gobsnot even more.

Agreed Anonymous above. Mackenzie has never been able to accept that the people of Cairns just did not want Kev Byrne to be Mayor forever. They voted for Tom Pyne ALP against Kev Byrne and then they voted for Val Schier ALP against Kev Byrne. I suspect Mackenzie worships the ground Kev Byrne walks on, because his loyalty goes well beyond what is normal liking between mates.

Worships the ground, Nanna Kay?? Sheeeeeesssh, you are being too naive I think. Mackenzie is in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with Byrne. Hey, its alright Nanna Kay, to say this today. We are all broadminded people and gay love isn't hiding in the cupboard any more. I repeat GAY LOVE isn't in hiding any more. You are allowed to bring it out. It's perfectly alright to analyse one man's feelings for another man today, and yes, Mackenzie has gone way beyond the measure of normality of support between matey men. A "hero" male does not go to the lengths Mackenzie has, to indicate his total admiration for another "hero" male. He's in LOVE.
