What has happened to Channel 10 news? Why is it SOOOOOOOOOOOO bad recently?
Monday Feb 7: communication
breakdown with anchor (not Narelda) and reporters.
Reporters left staring into camera for an eternity. The absolute drivel these reporters we regurgitating
over the fires was a disgrace. We will name them soon here.
Tuesday Feb 8. Channel Ten
helicopter takes woman into the skies to look at her destroyed house just
so they can do a two camera shoot on her in the chopper. This segment goes on and on and on....as they adopt the channel 9
monstrous approach of "squeeze them till they cry" tactic. This poor woman (who Ten will say was fully agreeing with the shoot
and was old enough to decide for herself) chats and back announces her way thru the viewing of her devastated house, while camera man
(slouching in back shooting through window in floor) gets the gory details of the house. A second person in the front is shooting vision of the
woman...dreading not miss a bit of the grief.
Channel Ten..... we thought you
had better morals than this cheap and nasty gutter journalism. This should be
left to the experts at
Today Tonight, A Current Affair and Sixty Minutes. Thank goodness for ABC News 24.
We guess Ch10 has decided in
recent times to lift its news format and presentation with George Negus (eeeeek)
returning and the
profile lifting of local readers (Narelda etc) supporting it. No...its crap. Go back to the hour bulletin without all the inbuilt self
promotion and cover local issues sensibly. Leave world news to SBS and deeper news to ABC.
How embarrassing Channel 10 has become. We had such high hopes.
