A tale of two papers

On holidays down at the beach (and blogging on the iPhone – pathetic ain’t it?), so as per the usual custom I bought the hard copy versions of the papers. Now, as locals will know we really only have two media proprietors here in Oz: The Australian, Murdoch-owned bell-wether of the loony right, but still a better paper than the directionless, mostly limp Fairfax offerings, like The Age. Hard not not to spot the difference beween the two, though. ‘Troop surge vital for Afghan win’ is the front page screamer on the Oz; ‘Afghan failure looms’ sez The Age. Actually the story is pretty much the same: without troops defeat looms. Moral of the story? Old hawks never say die.
