#115

Nine has broken away from the judge’s sentencing.


#116

That’s a shocking editorial decision


#117

Nine have now completely dropped the coverage advising viewers to go on-line to see the sentencing. Now running commercials. Amazing.


#118

Channel 7 live into Perth, channel 9 still continuing with the delayed version of Today.


#119

Pretty graphic stuff at the moment, don’t blame them.


#120

Agreed. It is incredibly graphic.


#121

Bad decision. According to the Fetch ratings (so only those with Fetch boxes), viewers have already started switching away from Nine since leaving the Pell coverage.


#122

Anyone had a look at sky news on win coverage yet


#123

Nine have switched back to coverage.


#124

So very strange.


#125

Not being carried by CNN, CNN International, Fox News USA, Sky News UK although I’m sure the sentence will be big news when it is announced. I’m surprised the Australian networks are sticking with it. I’ve had to stop watching. Too graphic and upsetting for me to stomach.


#126

Abrupt end to coverage for all networks


#127


#128

if he ends up going to jail in ararat he will need all the protection he can get


#129

Great coverage by all networks. Networks have become good here in recent years with breaking news special coverage.
