Maybe They ran out of Ink?

Andrew Bolt notes "How Fairfax hates Abbott. I mean, REALLY hates."

On the Sydney Morning Herald's letters webpage they currently feature this image of Christopher Pyne.

At least they resisted the temptation to add the little moustache.

Tim Blair has noticed the exceptionally low interest in Antony Loewenstein's SBS interview. 70 odd views in the last week at last count.

I have to confess I was responsible for at least 3 or 4 of those views. Not to hear what Antony had to say of course (entirely predictable and likely to alienate neighbourhood canines). But to see what he had on his bookshelf.

Antony who had written most of his Israel book having never set foot in the place, seems to also keep a copy of the Lonely Planet guide to Israel. Most visitors to the country would simply ask friends and family. Antony's family in Israel are not his friends and think he's a liar and a fool...

Still, he's good enough for Our ABC (and SBS).

Here Comes Another Bestseller...

Antony Loewenstein exaggerates again.
I launched my book Profits of Doom at Curtin University in Perth on 29 November to a packed house (more details and photos here and audio is here).
Packed house? I've had more people around to dinner. The promise of free booze will usually draw a crowd at any university. Antony didn't even pull enough crowd to fill a small lecture theatre. Count the empty seats rows. Packed house...

Standby for more exaggeration about stunning book sales, from this "documentarian" still taken seriously by the ABC.

Update: His Time Travel Question. Tim Blair notes Antony got the month wrong as well. He's seen the future!
