Media briefs: Palmer’s papers … anonymous sources … damn those bookies …

It's not the first time Palmer's spoken of starting a newspaper. And other media tidbits of the day.

We’ll believe it when we see it. If the thought of Clive Palmer launching a newspaper sounds familiar, that’s because it should. Yesterday Australia’s favourite eccentric billionaire tweeted that Rupert Murdoch would soon have a new Australian newspaper competitor, “as I’ve registered the trademark Australasian Times”.

Palmer fit in an interview with The Age before his Q&A appearance, telling Fairfax that he’s also seeking to set up a site where News Corp journalists can anonymously dish the dirt on their company.

    I hope Clive has a go at publishing a newspaper. After all, his efforts couldn’t be any worse than the current crop of drongos cr+p!
