For reasons best known to himself Canberra’s nomadic newsman Joran Gardner has blogged at length about his short little twitter war with Canberra’s third most popular thing, FM104′s Scotty and Nige.
I’ll leave it as an exercise for the readers as to who got the better of it.
The Twit War Winner Was…
Scotty and Nige
Jorian’s blog post (which was published in the Canberra Times as an opinion piece) about Canberra’s centenary celebrations lacking in local fun is spot on.

Everyone’s very excited, and even News Limited are running with comments made on 2CC this morning by the trouble-prone Jorian Gardner.
Mr Gardner said that on the breakfast show this morning he had been discussing lapel cameras for police.

– It relies on vast armies of volunteers working for free (often in highly professional capacities).
– It charges like a wounded bull. Seriously it hoovers money out of my wallet harder than any casino I’ve visited.
– It pays the most cursory to negligible [...]
Jorian Gardner has been in touch to make sure I know about his Secret Diaries of the Chief Minister podcast.
I’ll admit to the odd snigger and it’s only four and a bit minutes.

WIN have confirmed to us that Lachlan Kennedy is now the acting Chief of Staff for WIN News.
We’re currently chasing down why this would be the case and what’s up with the controversial and colourful news director, Jorian Gardner.
More on this as it comes to hand. We’ve requested comment [...]
Gossip has reached the bunker that CityNews’ iconic and highly controversial lynchpin, Jorian Gardner, could be off to be the News Director at WIN’s Canberra operation.
With his focus on local politics and the arts it’s probably a good fit, although it will be fascinating to see how the people skills work out.
