    Australian Tabloid Newspaper Names First "Dick Joke Correspondent"

    "Hard news - throbbing in fact."

    The NT News shocked the Australian media landscape late on Thursday announcing it had appointed its first "Dick Joke Correspondent".


    The tabloid based in the Northern Territory is known for its often irreverent, sharp and hilarious take on the news and BuzzFeed has been told it's no joke.

    "We saw a niche in the market that needed to be filled," Digital Editor Dave Krantz told BuzzFeed in an exclusive one on one interview.

    The new correspondent David Wood (of course) told BuzzFeed on the appointment, "the yarn is no way con-cock-ted" and described it as "hard news - throbbing in fact"


    Wood has been working in the newspaper's trusted and infamous "dangerous animals department" recently.
