Adam Bandt, having run uncontested, has taken over as leader of the Greens after Richard Di Natale's shock resignation yesterday.

And The Australian has wasted no time in showing what kind of media treatment Bandt can expect. As soon as he emerged as front runner, the national broadsheet sprang into action.

The Australian -- which is yet to identify a Green it would endorse as leader of the Greens -- responded to the news by reminding its readers of what a "radical" Bandt is.
