Media briefs: Bolt’s breach … 2012 radio ratings … Tele buries Slipper …

Andrew Bolt has gotten into trouble with the press watchdog over his climate change coverage. And other media tidbits of the day.

Bolt falls foul of press council. Melbourne’s Herald Sun has extended its lead as the newspaper with the most Australian Press Council breaches this year thanks to an article by Andrew Bolt questioning global warming. Bolt’s February opinion piece “Time that climate alarmists fessed up” claimed that the world hadn’t warmed for up to 15 years according to data from Britain’s Met Office. The Met had earlier put out a statement saying such claims were “entirely misleading”.

    The Peter Slipper story missed any mention in the Herald Sun, the Daily Tele and the Courier Mail. No collusion folks, just move on.

    News International in the UK had an increase in profit? Must be mere coincidence that James Murdoch had been removed to the USA in early 2011.

    “Blot” is what happens when you mistake your opinions for facts?
