A collection of the best plus a host of new material from 'Australia's oldest newspaper', a hugely popular online satricial 'news' service The BETOOTA ADVOCATE claims to hail from the Queensland town of Betoota (pop: 0) and be Australia's oldest newspaper.

Since venturing online in 2014, it has quickly become a player in online 'news' and entertainment, punching far above its weight, given not a word of it is true, and it was launched by three young blokes with not much more than a laptop and a distinctively larrikin Aussie humour.

Several of its so-called 'news' stories have been reported as fact by major news services, including Channel Nine, which reran the story of a parking policeman who booked himself, and radio 4BC, which re-reported the story of 78-year-old Reg 'Slim' Flynn, a former prize fighter who took out three would-be home invaders.

Now it's time to bring together the Betoota's best stories with a host of new material, including news, sport, human interest, crosswords - even the classifieds - in an inhale-on-Christmas-day-and-make-your-drunk-uncle-laugh collection.

'The Betoota Advocate shall reign supreme as the global purveyor of eternal truth' - Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce

    In the midst of today's hogwash fake news and current affairs channels, this book will be the guiding light of truth and integrity in Australian journalism for years to come.

      This is a very witty look at Australia in general. It needs to be remembered, however, that it is "tongue in cheek".

        Comments about The Betoota Advocate Round-up:

        I cannot believe that the news presented here in the Betoota Advocate Round-up has been completely ignored by the 'main' media or if not ignored a completely different set of facts provided by what is now known as the fake media. I can only thank the editors for getting me on the path of true reporting of very serious subjects many of which have far reaching implications on how I may lead my life going forward. I urge all discerning readers to obtain a copy by fair or foul means...preferably by purchasing a copy.....to put themselves at the cutting edge of world news if not the happenings of Betoota. We owe to the Woodward and Bernstein of Betoota Messrs. Overell and Parker this much as a minimum.
        DISCLAIMER: I am not in the employ of the Betoota Advocate nor do I know the editors.

            Cannot make my mind up if the stories were an actual event , and have been written up in a basic way, or they are the figment of the writers' imagination.

                I bought 2 copies as gifts fr young people who follow satirical blogs. The Beetoota Advocate is also a blog. I kept strumming through the books as I was wrapping them - very amusing, and I am in my 60's
