Maybe this is how they found out about those WMDs

How do you produce high quality journalism these days? Investigative reporting? Hard-hitting interviews? Piffle! Apparently you just read blogs. It´s blogs that house all truth, man!

The story is that Defamer made a joke about a new Mel Gibson miniseries concerning the holocaust. The next day, the New York correspondent for The Australian reported this as a fact, instead of a tongue-in-cheek bit of nonsense.

Bravo The Australian! Ensuring Australian media is considered a joke by the rest of the world. Yeah, I can hold my head up proud now.

FYI, Paula Zahn's CNN show ran a smilar story this evening, reporting that ABC had commissioned a script from Gibson's production company ;-)
