A journalist was abused and shoved off the stage and the culprit hauled away by security guards to show rivalry was alive and well at Australia's premier journalism awards dinner Nov 30. The ballroom at the Melbourne Crown Casino erupted with cheers when high-profile News Ltd political columnist Glenn Milne stormed the stage as internet journalist Stephen Mayne prepared to present an award. "You are an absolute disgrace," Mr Milne shouted, delivering a hefty shove which sent Mr Mayne tumbling off the front of the stage to loud cheers and whistles. Mr Milne was apparently outraged at Mr Mayne's unsubstantiated claims on the popular media critique website Crikey.com.
