One news outlet comes out of it, in our opinion, almost unscathed: Fairfax Media's The Canberra Times. The ABC doesn't look so great, and The Australian looks worst of all.
Holmes also criticised The Australian, but the basis of his criticism was in error.(Update: And kept on in the days since.)
Holmes gave the impression that the newspaper's reports debunking death threats at the ANU had extended to other alleged death threats at other universities.
The Australian's reporting of the issue has focused on tracking the progress of Mr Turnill's FOI request, which focused only on ANU.
Holmes also mistakenly asserted that The Canberra Times had not reported there had been death threats at ANU. But articles to the contrary were published by that newspaper on June 4 and 5 last year.
The June 5 report, which is available online, says: "Security has been tightened at the Australian National University in Canberra after several climate change scientists received death threats."
Silly old me-weeks ago when the OAIC decision was published I thought the comparative law issue was interesting. It hasn't attracted a mention in the back and forward since.
