Here isn’t the news

Late yesterday afternoon there was an ABC news item that as originally published was headed:

Police praise anti-APEC demonstrators

A google search on ‘abc news police praise protesters yields the following result at the top of the list:

Police praise anti-APEC demonstrators - ABC News (Australian ...
Police praise anti-APEC demonstrators. Posted September 8, 2007 18:25:00 ... Police estimate about 3000 people attended the protest march to Hyde Park, ... - 15 hours ago ...

Hit the link and we’re taken to an item headed:

17 charged following APEC protest

It appears that, about a half hour after the original headline, the document had been changed to something a little meatier.

Oh, and more in keeping with governments’ narrative about protesters...??
