Conrad Black, rape and the media arselicks

The journalist Mark Steyn deserves some kind of award for loyalty to his friends Conrad Black and his whorish wife Barbara Amiel – his dispatches from the 12th floor of the Dirksen courthouse over the last three or four months gave me huge pleasure: they were exercises in wish-unfulfilled dismantlement of all evidence against the Blacks (great villainous name) and the promotion of the idea that if you’re rich and successful you should be allowed a high degree of latitude in spending other people’s money on private jets and gilt-edged bogs, handbags, “corporate apartments” and other perquisites of the media magnate lifestyle.

Mr Steyn’s main preoccupation now as Black awaits sentence (whatever the sentence he’ll be out in three years, so worry not …) is the nightmarish prospect that (yes, let’s employ the newspaper vernacular) the “disgraced” Canadian tycoon may suffer the indignity of rape in jail, or as Steyn puts it in his satirically homophobic way, "taking it up the keister from Butch every night.” I’m sure your average lust-crazed psycho will be giving Conrad a wide berth if only because he’d have to be hung like an elephant just to effect entry beyond the metre or so of buttocks lard.

However, the Black case affords an opportunity to list the top 10 rich people’s arselick journalists in the media today (UK perspective) – hacks who excuse/justify/deny the excesses of their wealthy idols or who in some way worship huge amounts of money as a virtue in itself and probably derive sexual pleasure from totting up the cash noughts in their copy:

1. William Cash
2. Mark Steyn
3. Tina Brown
4. Nicholas Coleridge
5. Petronella Wyatt
6. Jasper Gerard
7. Dominick Dunne
8. Anthony Haden-Guest
9. Nicholas Foulkes
10. Peter York

Oh yes Walden certainly, but she's minor-minor league. Most journalists working on "upmarket" publications could be listed but I have picked out those who are in a class of their own. Their tongues probe deeper. Their erotic delight in the monied entirely shameless.

Whole careers are consecrated to the money gods - the slavish worship of the rich. I might go on a lecture tour of the universities - whaddya think?

William Cash deservedly takes the number one spot. The only problem is that he will actually be proud to be there, as most of the other hacks listed are far more successful than he. Yet another piece on a minor Euro aristo anyone?

Any more on Cash's short-lived marriage to the Bulgari heiress? - I got the impression from ES mag last week that he wanted to propose to the German Euro trash Mariae Gloria Ferdinanda Joachima Josefine Wilhelmine Huberta, Princess of Thurn and Taxis, friend of the pope and suspected lesbo.

Or, indeed, on the sale of Cash's contract publishing business? After succeeding in publishing titles for Annabels and similar wealth-oriented outfits, his business suddenly seemed to be up for sale...

Won't Babs Amiel threaten to sue you for calling her whorish?

Or are these tedious threats to sue only the domain of the odious Jon Snow?

Arcati said...

She is demonstably whorish; her whole wretched life is dominated by an obsession with high living and trading sex for the rich lifestyle. At 66 she should know better.

Cash's marriage took a nosedive after he admitted to some sultry affair with a trashy secretary. Apparently, his horrible wife's billions weren't enough to keep him faithful. He is terrible but she is even worse.

don't blame the wife or the secretary, it is Cash who is the scum. Now he has another rich woman he is dating- how can anyone be so stupid. He gives the impression that he has money himself but he is usually piss broke. What money he has came from the divorce- his company was pretty much in debt so he had to sell.

Actually, Cash's marriage broke up before he admitted anything.it was due to his general nasty behaviour...in his pathetic mind he thought admitting to an affair would save the marriage.

Walden's job is a social diarist, so you can forgive her. And Nicholas Coleridge is actually a hard working man and accomplished author.
