From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Bolt trips up when lecturing everyone else. Well, this is awkward. Yesterday, Australia's most-read columnist Andrew Bolt railed against the reporting of historical sex abuse charges against Cardinal George Pell, writing "media commentary suggests there's little chance Cardinal George Pell can get a fair trial". Bolt quoted a report in The Age and even wrote "shops still carry a savagely biased book by ABC journalist Louise Milligan". Where he really tripped up, though, was attributing quotes from abuse survivor Andrew Collins to Victoria Police Detective Sergeant Kevin Carson, who hasn't commented on the case. The Herald Sun carried an apology and correction on page 2 today.
