The Age reprints Guardian piece on the Church

The Age has a one page spread on the Catholic Church and Pope Benedict in the lead up to his visit to Britain today. I began reading it and then thought “I’ve read this before…” In fact, it is an edited reprint of an article I linked to in a previous post from The Guardian. I was wondering if the editors just took out the positive bits and left the negative bits. In comparing the two versions, I concluded that there was some evidence of this, but not much, so I won’t make anything of it.

    That’s fairly amusing in a ‘Letter from an Irish Mother to her Son’ sort of way, David!

    (Apologies to any Irish Sentirists!)

    The article appeared on page 17 of the Age I bought and contained nothing I haven’t heard before.

    Schutz should pass this onto Media Watcg at the ABC as they pick up sloppy journalism if the GUARDIAN is not acknowledged

      The Age,/i> version credits the Guardian reporters (and identifies them as such).

      The Guardian has a licensing deal with Fairfax media, and Guardian content is frequently recycled in Fairfax papers (just as content from the Murdoch papers in the UK is frequently recycled in Murdoch papers here).

      The Guardian doesn’t just get credit for this. They get cash too.

    Yes I wrote in haste. -nevertheless the Fairfax media cannot resist having another crack at Christian
