Why I Read a Selection of Newspapers

Because you don't often see stories like this in the local press. This is from the Western Australian:

Simmering tensions mixed with alcohol have been blamed for Papua New Guinea's media night of nights turning into an all-in brawl.

The 2008 PNG Media Council awards ceremony on Saturday night erupted in a fight requiring Port Moresby hotel security to step in and pull apart scrapping guests.

The fight came late in the proceedings, after speeches on the importance of media freedom and accurate reporting.

...The media awards night was the culmination of a week-long Media Council program to raise industry standards.

Man, I love that last line....
