That´s exactely what columnist do the majority of the time.  They take a piece in the news and elaborate their opinions supported by actual events.  I don´ t see how thehandsom is any different.  It is up to thehandome to select his topics, not you or I.  And it´s up to the reader whether or not they enjoy reading his columns.  So far thehandsome has had more publicity than any other columnist, he would do well at the New York Times...Big smile

 ............and when they do they clearly state WHAT is their opinion and what is fact.....and that is not what theH has done.  Of course he should select his topics......but he doesn´t have the stomach to take any criticism for what he says....IOW...some would call that "chicken".......

 

Yes, he would fit right up there with Judith Miller....ooops she´s not reporting for the New York Times now...seems her credibility has been squandered.

I am really disappointed I can´t comment under column but I think I can see theh point..subconsciously he exposes himself for criciticism and loves it..just a kind of masochism .otherwise he would not do that..ehh,theh grow up and accept things..the way they are..

 Agree, except I don´t agree with the subconsciously bit; more deliberate then he becomes the victim.     Writing comment to TC members in the column?? ............ unprofessional.  If you have something to say have the guts to say it in the public forum.

Did we make a rule against it?   It was a generalised comment mentioning no names (not that he needed to) - and who says that mentioning names in a ´column´ is ´unprofessional´ anyway?   Professional newspaper columnists do it all the time - both directly and indirectly.

 

If there was a part of thehandsom´s latest column I would criticise it´s the joke - I´m afraid Turkish humour still eludes me!  I think he should appoint lessluv sub-editor for the jokes Roll eyes

Fee for editing jovial writings........hmmm PricelessRazz
