this month takes on The Australian, showing how ideology has dominated news values in its pages.  This is something I have long noted, with sadness, as a once great paper has metamorphised as a propoganda tool, but it was interesting to see this process analysed at depth across a range of issues.  That, however, may only be of interest to the Australian's here.  Of more interest to all of us is the detailed section on The Australian's treatment of climate change.  IT is interesting to see a statistical analysis of the Australian's bias to supplement the anecdotal evidence I had as a sometime reader of the Australian. 

 

That section would make a usefull post for SkS, if it could be arrangeed.
