Virginia Trioli thinks she is a journalist.

Got stuck in someone elses car tonight and had to listen to Virginia Trioli on 774 /3LO. I was amazed she actually let other people who didn't agree with her have a bit of a say. Like nearly all presenters on 774 she is extremely biased to the left and at the same time seems to be completely unaware of this. Thats what happens when you live ,work and read in narrow circles. The thing that got me most when she was discussing journalists, for some unknown reason she considers herself one. She is a radio presenter for heavens sake. She gets on the air delivers a show, tailored to a select audience and then deludes herself that she is some form of journalist. She and her station compatriots are no better than Kasey Kasem or Frasier Crane. Radio personalities perhaps but not journalists.

One thing much in her favour - She barracks for CARLTON. So nearly all is forgiven.
