Jason Koutsoukis has been trying to make a good fist of things as Jerusalem Bureau chief at the Age in spite of the obvious problems at the newspaper with respect to its capacity to deliver a balanced view of the events in the Middle East.

It seems that Koutsoukis has now become the Fairfax patsy for a fairly serious breach of journalistic protocol – Julia Gillard put at risk by Iraq story .- "The report was a serious error of judgment by the reporter,'' Fairfax said.

So the Age blames the journalist but presumably it's lax at checking the material he publishes. That would be surprising at most news outlets but nothing surprises when it comes to Al Age.
