TV news – it’s all about winning the ratings through earned gravitas.

Or alternatively, you could do a giveaway for tickets to The Voice.

  4. Ok, i know im old, i accept that im whinging, but can ANYONE tell me where to find quality informative news on TV? (or anywhere for that matter)

    No celebs
    no surfing dogs
    no cross promotion
    no made up stories (channel 7 and the latest leadership tensions, im looking at you, this time)

    is there anywhere that “news” exists?

    ABC and SBS are the two “free to air” channels where you will find a decent news broadcast in Australia.

    Channels 7, 9 and 10 are quite simply not credible when it comes to news.
    – They are sensationalist, greedy, blatant and quite frankly an embarrassment.

  12. Thanks Matty, Emma and Reader… if only News 24 was “live” over here in 1974..ooops…. in Perth.

    To be fair…having recently discovered the joys of Letters and Numbers on SBS, the slide into world news is fabulous, unfortunately, i still need to go somewhere for my local information.
