Media briefs: carbon copy … Murdoch’s win … Sawyer signs off …

Only one major daily in Australia had no mention of Clive Palmer's climate change bombshell on its front page this morning. Guess which one? Plus other media tidbits of the day.

Carbon copy. Only Melbourne’s Herald Sun did not put new BFFs Clive Palmer and Al Gore on the cover, instead going with a story on the no-doubt-riveting report Adequacy and the Australian Superannuation System. Everyone else went with the fate of the planet, with subeditors on The Sydney Morning Herald (assuming there are any left on the SMH) and The Daily Telegraph having the same brainwave …

Another court victory for Murdoch. Rupert Murdoch is on a roll — on Tuesday in London News of the World phone-hacking trial went well for him and his favourite girl, Rebekah Brooks, and overnight the United States Supreme Court has delivered an enormous victory to Murdoch’s Fox TV and cable networks.
