As the ABC is to the BBC so Fairfax is to the Guardian.
The BBC just lost its head because its Newsnight programs rushed to judgement in the case of an alleged paedophile. The case was put that an unnamed peer was guilty of sexual abuse. Unnamed but instantly recognisable, especially after George Monbiot, a Guardian journalist, tweeted it to the world. Lord McAlpine called his lawyer. George wrote his apology, full of self-serving twaddle, but nonetheless probably the only thing he’s written that’s worth reading.

Maybe Mr. Abbott should also call his lawyers.
