Some of you may have noticed that, although the four writers behind Pure Poison are clearly lefties from left-wing sites apparently dedicated left-wingedly to attacking conservative columnists (from the left), and although Pure Poison has thus far not criticised anyone who wasn’t a hardline conservative, the mission statement of the site claims that we’ll be taking polemicists from all sides of the political aisle to task when they write something stupid, disingenuous, or otherwise intellectually dishonest.
SO WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET STUCK INTO PHILIP ADAMS/DAVID MARR/SCOTT BRIDGES?
This is where you come in. Tip-offs regarding shabby behaviour by published advocates of any political stripe are welcome and encouraged. Just because it’s Bolt or Blair who’ve historically raised my metaphorical goat (they’d have raised my literal goat if I had one), doesn’t mean I won’t happily get stuck into my own “side” when it lowers the standard of debate too.
Don’t assume we’ll look the other way. We might be shamelessly biased, but we’re not hypocrites. If we’ve missed some outrageous conduct that’s gotten your real or hypothetical livestock, let us know.
