Thank god we just had Jonathon Holmes addressing the state of news in Australia. A sad reflection that people prefer the tripe on 7 and 9 over 10s new bolder and better project.

Forget the plug for Ch10. It's a new project but it's not better. It's still garbage with (excepting Hugh R) crap reporters on the local scene, but Seven deserved every attack tonight. Commercial TV news here has been on a downward spiral for several years - and even the ABC has to watch the trend. What Mark Riley - and 7 News - did last week was absolutely indefensible and anyone working for Ch7 news should acknowledge that.

I'll betcha they don't - they'll fall back on the "But we warned him beforehand" excuse. Nicely covers a multitude of sins - presumably, Seven also believe a rape victim shouldn't complain about being raped so long as the rapist warned her a few hours before...

Congratulations on forming a sentence which is both disgustingly offensive and stunningly fallacious.

Well it's almost 2 years now since the 20th anniversary shows, and I'm still missing Stuart Littlemore from the show after all these years. In this Age article from 2 years ago Age article it says

Littlemore is pitching a new show to the ABC aimed at revealing legal process.


Any idea what happened to this pitch? I can only guess it wasn't picked up, but does anyone know more about this pilot?

That was the exact same reaction I had. Philip Coorey (SMH Political Chief) was rather critical of Tanner - and his book - in the Herald on the weekend; he focused in particular the blatant hypocrisy of Tanner's stance, and Tanner's refusal to even acknowledge his part in the Rudd Government. Several others have also made similar comments.

Media Watch failed to mention any of that, adopting instead their usual 'holier-than-thou' attitude to the television media.

From what I've gathered in the media, Tanner acknowledges the part politicians play in this circus but it's the media that requires it from them to get airtime.

I wonder if this "police investigation" is real or a Media Watch worthy beat-up, like TVQ-10's report last winter.

I wonder if this is the new "On Trial" program on ABC1?

Good episode tonight, focusing on Nine's RWC coverage, and also a funny bit at the end mocking the ABC promo department for their poor grammar in a promo for ABC2's encore of The Slap.

Didn't watch it tonight, due to new eps of South Park being up against it, which will now be on every Mondays at 9pm on SBS One.
I'll have to watch it on iview for the rest of this year at least, which is okay with me. :)

Great report by MediaWatch on that research company. Those pathetic survey stories have become such a massive part of their newspapers.

The 15 Second Promo for tonight's edition of Media Watch which aired on ABC1 NSW before Four Corners:


If you're in WA, this is your first look before the promo (and the show) airs on TV. :)

Side note: Tonight's program sounds like a real cracker!

Tonight's media watch was very high quality, and plain brilliant. Extremely thought out investigation into the "One Big Switch" campaign.
