And here, beat up on Melbourne's The Age.

How did the ABC get left out of this proxy attack?

Tim - here's a simple test you can take to the next Duffy Bias Debate. If a news agency covers the vicious murder of a civilian, and reports that it was done by militants instead of terrorists, then you know they're biased.

wow, the Age beat all of them today...
Somehow it avoided mentioning the terrorists at all - until the end of the article, where you get the feeling that the journalist was reluctantly forced to include the fact that the terrorists were linked to Al-Quada. You can sense the thought processes while he or she was writing, something along the lines of: "Damn! Do I really have to mention that? Sheesh... my job is a pain in the you know what sometimes."

Ahh gotta love The Age's headline:

"Militants behead hostage in Iraq"


As Allah would say, "Nuance Akhbar !"

And Michelle Grattan hasn't been taking her medication:


"This year's election will be the greatest head-to-head battle since Hawke v Peacock"

Gotta love this headline:
"Nobel Prize winners support Kerry"

Hmmm, like Arafat and Carter ?
