How Rupert Murdoch’s “The Australian” rewrites political history…

with one comment

Just a brief post to point out something intriguing. Just reading an Australian election analysis by Possum Comitatus at New Matilda, which pointed out this amazing piece of Big Brotherly piece of ‘information correction’ by Dennis Shanahan – editor of The Australian – on July 10 this year.

Well, it may not have actually been on July 10. The ‘correction’ appears to have been made as it has become increasingly clear that The Oz’s insistence on a resurgence by an inspired and visionary John Howard is a load of piffle.

Check out the “Howard checks Rudd’s march” op ed that seems to have gone missing from the Oz archives:

But support for the Prime Minister has improved since he announced the commonwealth takeover of isolated Aboriginal communities and repeated his determination to “stay the course” in Iraq.

In the past week, Mr Howard has also linked his Government’s global defence policy with the attempted bombings in London and Glasgow and the subsequent police investigations in Australia.

According to the latest Newspoll surveys 61 per cent of voters agree with Mr Howard’s actions in the Northern Territory. Even a majority of Labor voters approve of the plan.

Which has been replaced by “Rudd relaxed about Howard’s poll comeback“:

But the political support for Labor remains solid and the party’s two-party-preferred advantage of 56 per cent to 44 per cent – based on preferences flows at the 2004 election – has not changed in the past three weeks. The opposition leader still holds a greater satisfaction rating, 60 per cent to Mr Howard’s 46 per cent, and Labor retains an election-winning lead.

Kind of like Miranda Devine pretending to have a soul in the hope of keeping her job in a somewhat less evil Australia.
