SADDAMITES OR APPROPRIATORS?

Auntie told a fib about Tony Blair's speech to the US Congress. So did Channel 9, reports reader Geoff E.

It is interesting that I was watching Channel Nine News in Brisbane that Sunday night, and they said almost exactly the same thing as you have paraphrased .

Is this evidence of ideological alignment?

More likely a case of appropriation by 9 of Auntie's news service. But, since she employs Philip Adams, how can Auntie complain?
