The B.S. Factor

The Howard-Murdoch partnership continues apace, with Teh Oz today publishing as faux news comments on "jihad Muslims" which Howard actually made way, way back in December 2005!
Mr Howard gave a series of interviews for the book on December 9, the final sitting day of the parliamentary year for 2005.
What's going on? Well, Murdoch's gang want to stir up interest in a new book, The Howard Factor, which was written by "The Australian's team of journalists and commentators" to "mark the 10th anniversary of Mr Howard's rise to power".

Well, at least they are trying to make a distinction between their "journalists" and "commentators" nowadays. But it's still hard to tell the difference.
