Someone broke The Age

Either someone broke The Age’s web site, or there’s just no news worth reporting. Or maybe it’s a Fairfax cut-back? - No news

(Oh, it’s back now.)

I once saw a send up of a no-news day with a bulletin beginning with:

“Good evening.

Nothing Happened today.

Here with that story are our live reporters in London, New York, Paris, Sydney, Berlin, Delhi, Moscow, Rome, Toronto, Athens, Cairo, Rio de Janeiro and Johannesburg.”

They could just get a robot to copy and past from the New York Times two weeks after the story has run like they do now. Or just automatically post wire and Guardian copy as wrote, whoops! That’s what they do now!
