Look out, facts! Run for your life, common sense! Ex-Melbourne Age editor Michael Gawenda, now filing for his newspaper from the US, is on a one-man mission to mow you down! During his American adventure, Gawenda has to this point:
* flipped positive and negative percentages in a media story;
* quoted Alexander Downer saying something he didn’t say;
* mentioned a Frederick Forsyth book that turned out to have been written by Morris West;
* confused a whole sequence of events involving George W. Bush;
* puzzled over Christian admiration for Condoleezza Rice (“a single, black woman”);
* mixed up Bush’s approval and disapproval numbers;
Ten years ago this month, in Los Angeles, O. J. Simpson was acquitted of the murder of his white wife Nicole and her friend Ronald Coleman.
Pity this guy wasn’t in the US a year earlier. How much fun would Gawenda have been during an election?
