Media briefs: unified editorials … Rupert’s payday … perma-Frost …

Every major newspaper was in agreement over the weekend: it's time.

Everyone agrees: kick this mob out. The Sunday papers, both Fairfax and News Corp, were singing from the same hymnal with their election endorsements. The Comeback Kid aka Kevin Rudd must be hoping for something big up his sleeve, because it’s not looking good. From The Sunday Age:

    I’m not too convinced at the wisdom of crowing about the ascendency of the lesser of two weevils – let alone crowing about “our” part in it?

    On Sunday when I went to my local newsagent to buy a Fathers’ Day card ($5.00) I was offered a free copy of the Sunday Telegraph (cover price $2.50). I declined. New Corporation Australia clearly wanted as many people to see that front page as possible. Free advertising space on the whole front page of Sydney’s widest circulation newspaper, plus giving away how many thousands of copies for free to people who would not otherwise have bought a newspaper on Sunday. It must be costing them a fortune. They’ll be back to collect some time after Saturday.

    Interesting story on the Sunday Telegraph front page.. son of a friend is a paperboy in the Penshurst area sold out of Sun Heralds last week unexpectedly as the most buyers couldn’t come to buy the Tele with the Abbott visage, the same people that would have bought a Tele the previous week.

    I did consider accepting a copy of the Sunday Telegraph. I could have used the front page to line the Kitty Litter tray. But then I remembered that I don’t have a cat.
