Treading on each other’s toes

Dr Mumbo loves nothing more than a good media bunfight.

Yesterday saw the NT News take this swipe at the Guardian Australia with the Territory tabloid, famous for its weird crocodile/animal stories, more than a little perturbed by the Granuaid’s decision to venture into its territory…
