    Nothing at all on Bob on 9 in Victoria. The Greens will hold the balance of power in the Senate on 1 July 2011, and not a thing about the campaign launch. This seems a little sad.

    Kim, ain’t Channel Nine somethin’? So balanced durin’ the buildup to the Keating & Howard contest way back when. I imagine John would wanted to kiss Kerry Packer on the cheek on the victory podium.

    Tony’s Smear & Fear Team Will Lose Election For Him

    NINE gets a mention.

    You see, this is the problem. Gillard today announced the government would agree to the Cooper review’s recommendations to revolutionise superannuation by forcing companies to set-up low-cost default investment options.

    This is a policy that affects every single working Australian. It means more money in retirement, less leakage of funds to the white shoe brigade and a more efficient system that ensures their super doesn’t get lost when they change jobs.

    This should have been high up in the bulletin with a dedicated news item. But did Nine bother?? No, it judged as more important claims by a former Liberal foreign minister about a former Labor prime minister when that PM was in opposition, claims that the former Lib minister has now denied.

    Yet, the hard-nosed grizzled editors are Channel Nine believe this is what interests the punters.

    Spot on Mr. Denmore. So much for serving the public interest.

    I noticed that QLD ABC news unfortunately left out the important announcements by Peter Garrett:

    Convict sites join World Heritage list

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/08/01/2970124.htm?section=justin

    At a press conference with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Mr Garrett also announced Malabar Headland in Sydney’s eastern suburbs will be transferred to the New South Wales Government for conservation.

    Ms Gillard says the site is an important community asset, with World War II artefacts, Indigenous heritage and endangered banksia scrub.

    She says the transfer of the 70 hectares means it will be protected for generations to come.

    Odd that ABC 24 & the on-line site would have it…but left out in the QLD news.

    Yet the Victorian bushfire commission report-related news got alot of play.

    Hmmm…

    I’ve been carefully avoiding all news today just for a change. Interesting that Dolly Downer’s mis-interpretations have allowed another little snippet to go un-noticed. Julia Gillard’s body guard/junior staffer Andrew Stark was/is a former Liberal Party Member and he worked for Alexander Downer before the 2007 election. The MSM could only think of accusing Kevin Rudd but it would be no better or worse to question Mr. Stark would it? I guess the “Rudd’s Revenge” theme is all they’re interested in promoting.
