Beat UpThe Daily Terror and The Australian just had to put the word "Explosive" in the headline.
The headline was particularly disturbing in the Austalian because their source declared "It is not on the same scale as if you had an actual explosive (onboard)..."
The Age couldn't help themselves either.
This paragraph by David Miranda, "It may also have been designed to burn the plane while it was on the ground because it is impossible for passengers or crew to get into the plane's hold during flight" was about as bad as it got.
David Uren has lost a vote for the"Hack of 2004" because of his skilled reporting about Costello's $700mil black hole allegations.
While Uren lost a vote for "The Hack" Alan Wood gained one for his analysis of the same issue.
Costello made an allegation which has been disputed by an independent economics organisation. That is the story, but Wood claims Labor has to submit their figures to treasury to defend Costello's allegations. So according to Wood, Labor has to defend the false allegations while Costello doesn't have to prove them.
A few hours later the PM made the same call about the
$700 million claim. Singing from the same song sheet eh?
Definitely a vote for "Hack of 2004".
