DYLAN WELCH: A rose by any other name

VEXNEWS is always keen to correct the record.

Fairfaxista Canberra Press Gallery “national security reporter” Dylan Welch tells us we once erroneously published a picture of Damien Murphy and captioned it as him. He really did seem a bit miffed about it.

Captioning errors can easily happen in a fast-paced 24-7 newsroom and even though there is no record in the dusty VEXNEWS archives of any such malcaption, if that is itself a word, which does seem unlikely also, we are very vigilant on these matters..

Therefore, for the sake of clarity, we wish to publish this photograph as one that is Fairfax supplied and most certainly of Mr Welch.



Comments are disallowed for this post.

  1. Dear VEXNEWS,

    Thank you for your prompt correction. I can assure you that you once posted a photo of me and captioned it as Damien Murphy (not the other way around). It involved you drawing a link between the fact a camera flash made my eyes appear red, and Satan. While I appreciated the association with Our Dark Lord, I was upset to find you had mistaken me for someone else.

    You will note I am wearing googles in the above photo to prevent further revelations regarding my diabolic ancestry.

    Yours in bewilderment,
    Dylan “Damien Murphy” Welch

  2. Murph is at least two decades older and substantially less energetic than Dylan, reveling as he does in his acclaim as World’s Laziest Hack. he peels out a yarn every other month or so, and wouldn’t be seen dead in a pool without a bottle of something. Or two.

  3. Don’t associate me with that ugly little sod.

  4. Was that me that said that?

  5. Of course not. You’re an idiot.
