So, the Malaysian Grand Prix, you may have heard about it. It’s a perfect snapshot of how the mainstream media in Australia handles Mark Webber.
Last week the local media tore shreds from Mark after his woeful start, which, funnily enough, ended up not being entirely his fault. Now, the media is lauding him as some sort of saint-in-waiting who has been dealt an unimaginable injustice by that devil in disguise named Sebastian Vettel.
It’s also an excellent example of how quickly the media world can force things to spiral things out of control; we’ll go into a bit that later.
Anyway, enough banter, here’s the pics from Sepang. We hope you like them.
