Shock! Murdoch Backs Murdoch:

In an article titled "Make no foolish admissions of Iraq error" the Australian newspaper, a Rupert Murdoch-owned News Ltd publication, says:

"The ABC, in its slavish devotion to the BBC, will repeat all the slanders and inaccuracies of its mother broadcaster but the Government should not be swayed by this. (It is instructive to note that had the ABC had that kind of slavish devotion to Fox News it would have got many more judgment calls about the war right than it did.) "

But then the author, Greg Sheridan, makes a startling admission:

"Certainly it would take a government with an extraordinary death-wish to set up a royal commission. "

Why is that, if the government has nothing to hide and did nothing wrong?
