"For scoops and analysis, it's a war of all-against-all."

Politico explains it all.

For scoops and analysis, it's a war of all-against-all.

That's not news to me. Not new, either.

This is a scoop requiring analysis.

Is Scoops and Analysis a game journalists play? Sort of like Dungeons and Dragons but with more pencils and note tablets, and not quite as complicated as Chutes and Ladders?

Well, that was an insightless, thought-damping interview. Notice how Smith ducks every one of the questions and avoids specifics?

Demian,

Agree with you totally. What a waste of space that article was! Why not just say I'm the greatest and I don't do sex.

"In your years doing a political beat scene, has there been a politician or media figure you've come across that's surprisingly a real dick?"

Now, there's a classy question.

"scoops and analysis" is like Shoots and Ladders. Both are played by the pre-verbal.

Smith: ...On the other hand there's certainly space for someone to come and…not have any scruples...

Scruples does not relate to either politics or journalism.

Smith comes off as a self-absorbed twat, more than usual I might add.

Too few scoops, just for starters.

My analysis is that we may be entering a phase where ice cream will be in short supply.
