In the s, under editor Jim Bowditch, the paper pursued a self-government and social justice agenda, with ample coverage of indigenous issues.
Inside the Northern Territory News
According to Fairfax Media journalist Rick Feneley, a former colleague of Bowditch's, Murdoch visited the NT News in the early '70s and complained to Bowditch about the amount of "black faces" in the paper. Don said, 'You guys seem to think you're pretty funny. Shame I don't see more of that in the paper. Ricci pushed the story onto page one and illustrated it by Photoshopping the head of a cane toad onto the body of Superman.

So it was clear what to do if we wanted to sell newspapers. And that's just off the top of my head.
There is also the argument that the paper infantalises its readership, depicting what is arguably one of Australia's most cosmopolitan cities as a bunch of boozed-up, bum-flashing bogans. But deliberately misleading readers is another thing. But the Northern Territory jails people at a rate five times higher than any other state or territory in Australia. We beat the US, China and Rwanda.
It's a gulag here, so for the NT News to perpetuate the idea that the Territory 'goes easy on crime' is grossly inaccurate. Darwin-based "ufologist" Alan Ferguson has traditionally been the NT News' chief source of alien stories - untilwhen he says he was misquoted in a story about alien abductions. It went on to say that Ferguson had himself been abducted and subject to anal probing, a suggestion Ferguson took exception to.
I contacted Ferguson to see if he would talk to me, but he emailed back, saying: But I said straight away, 'Don't repeat that. The NT News won. The first was that most people hated it. In fact, most people are quite fond of the paper, in the same way you can't help but be fond of a reprobate younger sibling.
Plus, the Territory is a very even, flat society: And the NT News intrinsically understands that. But most of the stories are genuine. It seems people in Darwin really do do more stupid things per head of population than almost anywhere else.
Darwin also has a young population, with a median age of 33 the next closest capital city is Canberra, with It's also a transient population. Add all these things together and what you get, as one long-term resident put it, is "a type of behaviour that is less constrained by middle-class values". All of which explains how the NT News is the only paper in Australia to employ a Dick Joke Correspondent David Woodwho has fashioned a career out of phallus-shaped cloud formations and Territorians' penchant for altering road signs "Beware wandering cock", where "cock" was once "stock".
On my last day in Darwin, I sit in on the afternoon news conference when the editors and senior writers debate which stories will appear in the next day's edition. At The Sydney Morning Herald, such a conference might be dominated by national politics and global affairs; here, the big stories are about a rogue hairdresser who is butchering people's hair on the outskirts of Darwin, a man who got nine months' jail after attempting to run someone over and the discovery that "genius Territory crocs" have worked out how to eat cane toads without killing themselves.
Apparently they eat only the back legs.

There is a story about Darwin Mayor Katrina Fong Lim clocking up 40, kilometres to attend overseas junkets, and a piece about a new pedestrian crossing that is "giving motorists the shits". A perfect 10 - that would be your score if you were with me!
