Windschuttle screams blue murder over Quadrant funding cut

    Let the much vaunted, Sainted Invisible Hand of the Free Market rule – as Mudorch claims to believe, punters are happy to pay for quality.

    His name is Imre Salusinszky.

    Not Imre Shaluzsinzsky, Imre Szaluszinshky or Imre Szhazulszinzky.

    (See http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/opinion/columnists/imre-salusinszky or http://www.australiacouncil.gov.au/about_us/the_council/members/dr_imre_salusinszky or even http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imre_Salusinszky.)

    Who was the one complaining “that no-one had bothered to fact-check”?

    And don’t even try and claim this was humour.
