Ok news hounds, what’s missing from this picture?
Have you figured it out yet?
Would you like a great big hint?
How long do we think it will be before the Australian updates the story about its editor threatening to sue a critic, now that audio of the event that was being live-tweeted has been released? It’s interesting to compare how quickly the Australian seems to have lost interest in this story with the continuous commentary that it produced over the unmasking of Greg Jericho.
For background on the #twitdef issue take a look at Andrew Dodd’s piece for Crikey
And a quick reminder of how well the Australian ‘gets’ new media.
Update: As mentioned by Neil Walker in comments, the audio gets a post on Caroline Overington’s Media Diary. This still doesn’t explain why it doesn’t show up in the search, or as a related item on Sally Jackson’s article about Mitchell’s threatened legal action.
