Today in Media Files, The Age continues the Sudanese gang narrative with crime statistics, and Hugh Hefner has been remembered as a stunning success.

The Age's tabloid turn. Victorians would be well aware of the perils of young Sudanese criminals. As Crikey reported in April, tabloid the Herald Sun had dedicated 28 front pages to the "notorious" Apex gang, which police have since said was made up mostly of Australian-born crims and has now broken up.

    Surely 1 in 7 Sudanese-born youths charged with a crime is newsworthy.
