Reply Offal Spokesperson 29 May 12 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? Reply Emma 29 May 12 Three letters Offal Spokesperson – ABC Reply Matty 29 May 12 @Offal Spokesperson: There’s this great place that does nothing but news – ABC news 24. Reply Reader of the news 29 May 12 @Offal Spokesperson 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. Reply Offal Spokesperson 30 May 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. Reply Matt 30 May 12 My recommendation is to stick with news radio if you’re looking to be informed.. Reply Kellyu 30 May 12 @Offal Spokesperson, ABC News 24 is live in Perth – everything is broadcast on AEST. Reply Comments are closed.
