Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …
Throw another shrimp on das Barbecue. Yesterday we brought you a tip
that News Corp's News.com.au
had put up -- and then quickly taken down -- a glowing story about online video-streaming service Netflix coming to Australia. Why the about-face, we wondered? Was it because News Corp owns Netflix competitor Foxtel? News.com.au
editor Daniel Sankey kept mum on the reasoning behind pulling the piece, but we're beginning to think perhaps it was actually a question of geography. We think maybe someone got their hands on this press release
Netflix has denied plans
to launch on our fair shores. Geographical mix-ups are the wurst. Could News.com.au
have made the same mistake as Jim Carrey ...?
