On Monday, The Age’s first edition was meant to have a headline about claims a senior and respected public servant had a fling with a Vietnamese spy who supposedly took $20M in bungs to agree to using Australia’s world-best currency technology.

Instead it read “Securancy headline goes over eight” (columns)… Oops. Is this the quality newspaper they pretend to be?

  1. They are a joke, all these big salaries, low rent people at Fairfax.

  2. I get The Age and The Australian home delivered and my Age this morning has the second or correct content.

  3. On some days The Age resembles a pamphlet rather than a newspaper. Obviously the can’t sell the advertising.

  6. I don’t blame the masthead….i blame management. This is a fairly “secondary sub-editors” and outsource the production of your paper to….. any one.
