Media black holes...

Got to love media bias.

Last night, the Independents released details of Treasury costings of Opposition policies, and, unsurprisingly given Mr Abbott's reluctance to handover his policies to Treasury for official costing, Treasury and Finance have rejected most of the claimed savings.

The size of the hole?

The Australian, which has been campaigning for a new election in the hope of a clear mandate for the Coalition, says "Treasury finds $7bn in Tony Abbott's costings."

The Sydney Morning Herald goes for "Treasury wipes $10bn off Lib costings."  Oddly its sister paper the Age goes with the $7 billion figure.

And the ABC - "Treasury blows $11b hole in Coalition Costings"....

Today Mr Abbott gets to try and explain the discrepancies to the independents....
