Journalist appalling to the UN, re Gutnick case
and Louise Milligan, "Gutnick defamer goes to UN", The Australian, 17/4/03; no URL

It would be comforting to think that the Australian media could at least competently report on issues that directly affect their own backyard. Louise Milligan's report in today's Australian so lacks a basic understanding of the nation's legal system, vis a vis international law, that she drops this bizarre clanger:

"Australia was not a party to the original High Court defamation case". Err, Louise, would that have been because Joe Gutnick (or Dow Jones, for that matter) was not a member state of the UN, either?
