We’ve matched every major metro newspaper to its biggest obsession

No prizes for guessing the NT News' biggest obsession.

A newspaper reflects and shapes the community it serves. And so, each of the metropolitan newspapers has its own personality and distinct obsessions, from people it hates, to local issues it just really gets worked up about.

It doesn't take much for The Daily Telegraph in Sydney to get itself worked up. But nothing gets the Tele frothing at the mouth quite as much as when Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore says or does pretty much anything.

    The Curry or Maul hates The Greens/greenies, Labor, unions and anyone who gets in the way of Murdoch’s agenda as much as it does Palmer.
    While Palmer was a patron of their Limited News Party he was of no concern.

    Very true, except for the first line. The Murdoch papers don’t reflect or serve anything other than Uncle Rupert’s political and economic agenda, including being very selective about the letters they print from readers. Murdoch and his minions don’t brag about being a ‘campaigning’ newspaper company for nothing. And try leaving a comment that is even mildly critical of the Murdoch media on any of their websites and you’ll find it deleted by the moderator within five minutes – precious pansies!

    No mention of Canberra’s paper, and I guess as Newcastle is not capital of anything really Fairfax’s The Herald has no interest to others but it got stirred up for years about “cutting the rail” and then a 2.5km $300million “Light Rail” until the inaugural V8 Supercars blew it and 3000 Newcastle East residents out of the water.

    The title of your story is misleading seeing as you haven’t bothered with the capital city’s own rag. Maybe the CT should get into UFOs/cable cars or killer carp in LBG.
