The Australian runs an article favouring Labor over Liberal

Oh, hang on. No. My mistake. I was reading my monthly issue of "Union Supporter Weekly" that I get delivered to my door. Excellent value for only $7.95 per issue. Or have it taken out of your union membership fees.

Jackson eyes $400m comeback plan... packaged around 12 year old boy

BBC - Michael Jackson could earn more than $400m (£283m) from a comeback deal involving new music and movies as well as concerts, his promoter has revealed.

The pop superstar has announced 10 gigs at the O2 arena in London this summer, approximately two years after the world had collective amnesia over his inability to have appropriate relationships with prepubescent children.

Randy Phillips, head of AEG Live, which is staging the gigs, said they had a wider deal that could cover a world tour and a 3D film based on Thriller.

"When you factor in the number of people worldwide who give a rats arse about 3D films and "Thriller" you're looking at at least £12."

He also said: "We're talking to him about helping him figure a new plan for the release of singles, new music. We're talking to new producers to shape the music and we're looking for a new 9 year old muse Michael likes the shape of."

Obama waits until January when he can actually do something

Obama picks McCain to lead his Ministry of Youth

NEW YORK TIMES - Senator Obama last night dropped a bombshell by announcing former presidential candidate and opponent Senator John McCain would spearhead his Ministry of Youth.

The move was seen by many as a gesture to the man he has spent the last five months of his life sparing. 

"You've also got to think of this as a symbolic gesture towards creating a bipartisan group of advisers," said one Obama aide. "The fact that Senator McCain is being put into a position where he has no experience in the last 57 years of his life is not a reason to think he has been set up to fail."

Senator McCain has signalled he will accept the post and has already given an indication of possible policy directions by once again recounting his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
