I don't know if Craig Binnie had anything to do with the headline but "Greens grab for widow's millions" in today's Hun is beyond a joke.
If the story is true, it has absolutely nothing to do with the Greens. Binnie's "no comments" paragraph from the ACF, was subbed out for their on-line addition. Why this was done is beyond my comprehension.
2 votes for the "Hack of 2004".
It wasn't a bomb you morons, but that didn't stop the Daily Terror editorialising about one.
The Daily Terror ramped up the fear declaring "While it is too early yet to say whether the device found on the Virgin Boeing 737 on Monday morning posed an actual threat to the aircraft". This is absolute rubbish, unless you believe in spontaneous combustion. The Age was just as bad.
Malcomn Farr gives the Lib's dirt file on Latham a great run in the Daily Terror today.
Farr talks about the dirt file and then repeats the claims as fact.
Surely he should have added the phrase "the Liberals claim" to this paragraph, "Back in October, 1992, when mayor of Liverpool, he had urged the State Government to close eight Sydney hospitals to save $150 million a year."
In a very flimsy story Farr argues "The Liverpool Leader (local paper) at the time reported Mr Latham's Labor colleagues weren't impressed with Craig Knowles, a future health minister and then Liverpool alderman, calling it simplistic."
Repeating a Liberal dirt unit's claims as facts and then finding this totally unrelated report in the local paper can only be described as pathetic.
One vote for Farr.
Will file again later.
