Well folks, it looks like our good friend Dylan Howard has struck again.

You remember Dylan. He was the journalist who paid for stolen medical records and tried to publish them.

He was subsequently sacked from 3AW and Channel 7.

Then I hear him on SEN on a late night sports show last year. I remember wondering what he was doing on the air given his past. Still, if anyone was going to hire him, it was SEN. However it seems that Howard has since been 'released' from that station.

Now it has come to light that Dylan Howard is responsible for selling the Lara Bingle shot to Woman's Day.

I know we all think Hutchy is a wanker and Wilson is a gossipmonger, but Howard is on another level entirely. Twice now he has been caught buying and selling documents that shouldn't see the light of day to major publications.

Dylan has been sacked from Channel 7, 3AW, SEN, and as far as I know is no longer employed in Melbourne. His main occupation these days seems to be finding old photos and selling them to gossip magazines.

Well done, Dylan :rolleyes:

Shouldn't the legal focus be on Howard now, as opposed to Fev. Fev must hate this guy, he is the one that over did the story about Fev getting the barman in a headlock in Ireland. I wonder how much he got for the picture.

Absolutely. I'd never heard of this photo before it got in the magazines. He's already responsible for more circulation than Fev ever did.

I think its something to do with the name Dylan Howard

Worked with a guy of the same name until he was sacked and later convicted of stealing money from the company. From what I hear its just the tip of the iceberg of what he has allegedly done.

So it seems that Dylan Howard the "journalist" was doomed from the moment his parents named him to be a bit of a scumbag. Or that's my theory until I am given evidence of at least 2 Dylan Howards who are unpstanding citizens

It does seem strange they are going after Fev considering he didn't submit the picture to the magazine OR publish the magazine. Of course, it's just a media scam set up by Bingle's new agent Max - guess getting paid and some more publicity makes it all worth it ;)

not in this case. though, for her or the magazine.

I myself would so prefer the magazine pay 200,000 to the flood victims in Qld who have lost everything, than to this person for this particular nothing story. Its very very wrong on so many levels.

Yeah, but if she went after Howard.... she'd get 20c

Going after Fev the 20c becomes 200000000000000000000000000000 :p

The man is absolute tripe. Was going to say this belongs in Footy Fourth Estate but he seriously is a massive knob and the more people that know about it the better. I wonder what actually goes through his head when he pulls crap like this.

No way an investigative journalist can get a gig covering the AFL, its full of journos who toe the line, stick by the unwritten rules of the AFL all for a cup of tea & a scone.

Has anyone pursued the underlying story Howard exposed? NO, why is that?

Who broke the Cousins story, not an AFL journo !!
