One of Rupert Murdoch’s most trusted and colourful lieutenants, New York Post editor-in-chief Col Allan, is returning to Australia. Allan will spend the next two to three months at News Corp Australia’s Holt Street headquarters advising CEO Kim Williams on editorial strategy.

    A big rat jumping on a sinking ship from another sinking ship? The rags couldn’t get any worse could they? They don’t even make decent toilet paper. Crooked fuzz,the LNP and Rudd must have asked for a wage rise. Did a great job helping Obama get re-elected while supporting romney. This should be good.

    Loathe as i am to defend the unspeakable NYPost, the cartoon did not depict Obama as a chimp but was about the shooting of an escaped pet chimp which had torn off its owner’s face. It was the bien pissants who claimed it was anti BO because the sensitivity of the his election and amerika’s unresolvable Originating Sin.

    Got it in one, John W!
    Col has obviously been brought out here especially for the election, to further savage Kevin Rudd and the Labor Party (if that’s possible). I bet the ‘temporary’ assignment will end the day after the election.
    Pity Limited News doesn’t realise they are already preaching to the converted!!

    A dinosaur visits Oz to advise another dinosaur on a dying industry.

    Sounds like fun….

    Allen is fleeing natural consequences & the Sandra Guzman suit, “accusing editor Col Allan of racism, sexism, and all-round dickishiness of the highest order”. He should fit right in at News Corp(se) Australia, motto: No to Refugees .. unless they’re white male throwbacks.
