Press Council upholds complaint against The West Australian – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

This news item is strange absent from The West Australian’s website.

The finding against The West illustrates for me that the paper will do anything for high circulation and doesn’t care much about journalistic standards. It seems to me that under Paul Armstrong’s editorship, the paper has become more like a tabloid, a daily Sunday Times. What do you think?

I also hate the way a popup ad which takes a few second to kill hits me everytime I open the site. I know I could easily change my settings, but I bet they’re relying that people are lazy like me and keep forgetting to.
