And the Wankley goes to… the Cairns Post, not playing hard to get

Oprah's coming to Oz, haven't you heard? Excitement is building across the nation, nowhere more than the Cairns Post newsroom which has run a five-day media campaign trying to entice the chat show queen to the north of the Sunshine State.

The only thing better than finding a great Wankley candidate is when it’s trumped and dumped at the last minute by something even worse.

So first, the honourable mention — News Limited tabloids The Daily Telegraph and Herald Sun and promotion of their new iPad applications. Forget the app, weโ€™re still struggling to get past the horrendously suggestive slogan — “Touch the news that touches you”.

    C’mon Crikey. When it comes to anything Oprah…..The sky’s the limit.
    I’d say The Cairns Post was positively “understated”. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Just wait till the “read deal” hits Sydney.
    We’ll be hiding under the blankets for a month. ๐Ÿ˜€

    What’s missing is a “Scientology is welcome here” statement in each promotion.
