When flame wars turn ugly

This video is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. The old drunken idiot is Glenn Milne, a senior political correpondent for News Limited in Australia. He's renowned for being an "insider". In reality, he basically publishes any old gossipy trash that he's fed by a pollie. The skinny guy is Stephen Mayne. He setup the daily internet newspaper Crikey and is also a politcal activist. He's been warring with Milne for a few years now, basically, he's called him a few times for being the hack that he is. Then, after a few too many drinks at the Walkley Awards, Australia's jounralism awards night which is incidently being televised live... well, you can watch the rest.
