Crikey says: the ultimate media witch-hunt

Gas shortage? What gas shortage? Paddy Manning begins a special Crikey investigation. Bernard Keane heads to the front line of the Coalition's war on scrutiny. It's bloody stuff. Has the entitlement drought broken already? Who's got the world's biggest army? And women on boards: just do it already.

Reckon Australia's tabloids are bad? And it can't get any worse than Britain's racy gutter-rags, right? Try Ugandan newspaper Red Pepper ...

Exposed! Not celebrities gone wild. Not murders, rapists and paedophiles. Exposed for a propensity -- reportedly -- to love the same gender. It's Crikey's front page of the day. And probably year. "The media witch-hunt is back," tweeted Kasha Jacqueline, a human rights activist named among the 200 "top homos". What a world some must live in.
