Explosion outside the US Embassy in Beijing.


#368

Beijing police said a 26-year-old man from Inner Mongolia denoted a firework device outside the embassy and injured his hand.


#369

As much as I emphasise with farmers across NSW, I feel that the attention the media is giving to the “drought” situation just proves how NSW/Sydney-Centric Australian media is in 2018 (see below map of rainfall deficiencies YTD).


Climate & Weather
#370

I don’t get your contention: most of the areas with the ‘lowest on record’ percentile are in western New South Wales?


#372

The drought is predominantly affecting NSW, but the media coverage does not really indicate this and treats it as a national story.


#373

The Project tonight said the drought affects 57.4% of Queensland as well, which given the land mass is a huge portion of the state also effected by this.


#374

ABC24 showing live pictures from scene of Italian bridge collapse; though at the moment there isn’t too much to see.


#375

To be fair, I saw that drought promo Nine have been running connected to The Today Show with various network personalities and it never mentioned Sydney or NSW once, but “Australia”.

However, yes, I agree about actual OB coverage which seems to have been based in rural NSW.
