Quadrant apologises (kinda) … solidarity pizza … finding Corby …

Schapelle Corby is returning to Australia! (Maybe. Probably.) So where will she go? Let's stalk her relatives until we have a list of possible locations.

Today in Media Files, Schapelle Corby is coming home, and we see the bad and good in the media in the wash-up of the Manchester bombings.

Quadrant apologises, doesn't remove article. Quadrant has apologised for an opinion piece by online editor Roger Franklin in which he said he wished the ABC had been bombed instead of the Manchester concert venue. Editor-in-chief Keith Windschuttle sent a letter to ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie yesterday afternoon after she wrote to the magazine demanding the article be removed and the magazine apologise. This morning the article was still on the website, and the apology had not been posted to Quadrant's website. The ABC has reported that the article is not accessible from within the ABC, but it could be having trouble accessing the site because of what we would expect is unprecedented traffic to Quadrant caused by the controversy.
