Ugh what a manipulative lying scumbag.

So what's the audience of The Australian?  From what I've seen, it's a super conservative paper.  Do many people read it?

According to Wikipedia:

"The Australian is the biggest-selling national newspaper in the country, with weekday sales of 135,000 and Saturday sales of 305,000, figures substantially below those of Sydney's and Melbourne's top selling papers. Its chief rival is the business-focused Australian Financial Review.

[...]

The Australian is published by News Limited, an asset of News Corporation, that also owns the sole dailies in Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Darwin and the most popular metropolitan dailies in Sydney and Melbourne.[1] News Corporation's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder is Rupert Murdoch.

The Australian integrates content from overseas newspapers owned by News Limited's parent, News Corporation, including the Wall Street Journal and The Times.[1]"
