There’s no argument that the Herald Sun’s Andrew Bolt has one of the most read blogs in Australia, so you’d presume that most of the people within the News Ltd empire would have more than a passing familiarity with it. It turns out, when it comes to The Australian at least, that’s not necessarily the case.

As many of you will remember, back in August Andrew Bolt complained about the twitter account that parodied him, and went so far as to add his post about it to the sidebar of his blog.


So no confusion there then? Strangely enough this information doesn’t appear to have filtered through to whoever was responsible for collating some of the twitter responses to James Massola’s unmasking of the author of Grog’s Gamut.

What’s that last tweet?

I’m surprised that the name “Fake Andrew Bolt” on @andrewbolt’s profile didn’t raise any red flags. I must admit, however, that I find it interesting that people at The Australian have more interest in Grog’s two thousand hit a month blog than Andrew Bolt’s two million hit a month one, I guess that sometimes you can discern between volume and value.
