NBN bashing in the Murdoch press

The other day I alluded to a 'tendency' in the Murdoch-owned News Limited press to get a little bit hysterical when it comes to the NBN. Well, partially in response to Senator Stephen Conroy losing patience with their unremittingly repetitive and frequently non-factual coverage - in this he is joined by NBN Co. CEO Mike Quigley and me - The Australian has ramped up its attacks. The front page of their website now features a banner link delicately proclaiming "NBN WATCH: How your billions are being spent". I  tallied up the number of NBN-positive stories in there. It didn't take long, since I know how to count to zero.

David Braue over at ZDNet has a pretty good round-up of the coverage. It's well worth a read.
