While we’re on the subject of editorial influence, I can’t help but wonder of who’s volition this comes from.
“On Saturday morning November 24, 2007, I (Caroline Overington) had an encounter with the Labor candidate for Wentworth, Mr George Newhouse, in circumstances that I sincerely regret. I hope that Mr Newhouse and I can put this incident behind us and I wish him all the best.
The Australian regrets any embarrassment Mr Newhouse has endured and also wishes him well.”
Ooooh, how that must have hurt!
