New Matilda publishing prejudiced articles as 'satire'

The New Matilda blog allows Ben Pobjie to post his personal prejudice against women and calls it 'satire'.

But don't let me influence readers' opinion. Read the following articles and readers comments for yourself and be the judge. I think we have a competitor for the infamously corrosive Miranda Devine trying to get publicity by offending as many people as possible. It is shock jocking on-line.

'Populate or suck Australia'

'You deserve better malcolm'

'Australian home renovation'

Sail Away, Jessica

Where is New Matilda heading?

I just read "Populate or suck Australia" and thought that Ben Pobjie lampooned all the misinformation - down to the idea that we are being flooded by asylum seekers in excess of economic immigrants. I thought that the 'being a girl' thing was in the same vein, so I guess I don't agree with John Marlowe's assessment in his article above for this article.
