Notes: The Betoota Advocate is an Australian satirical news website. Started in 2014 by former journalists Archer Hamilton and Charles Single and publisher Piers Grove, the site puts a comedic spin on current news topics and broader social observations. While based in inner Sydney, the site takes its name from the deserted regional town of Betoota, Queensland, and purports to be “Australia’s oldest newspaper” (D. Van Zandt 11/16/17)
