#142

Looks like 10 had that pause for all the network to cross to Hugh’s coverage.


#143

Queensland jumped slightly early, end of Sandra’s throw to Hugh in Sydney was broadcast.

Peter Mitchell in Canberra for 7 News Melbourne


#145

The ‘Last Word’ on Sky today has been a trainwreck - you’ve got Speers & Jayes having to deal with Murray going off at seemingly everything and anything preventing Dutton having a clear ride to the prime ministership

Adelaide’s Ten Eyewitness News, tonight:

Over on Seven, it seems like TT is taking a break and news will run for a full hour… according to the EPG.

As posted into the Sunrise topic, this morning’s show went live into SA from around 8 am AEST (7:30 local).

Unfortunately I’m not home from work yet to see what type of meltdowns will be occurring tonight on sky news after dark. It will be hilarious viewing. One after the other there will be rants, yelling, tears, foaming at the mouth.


#151

Why do you watch them? Stop amplifying them.


#152

What did do Melbounre channle 10 do during their 5pm news.?
did they jump to sydney 5pm news?


#153

An extraordinary frank opening commentary from WIN News Queensland tonight with national coverage from the perspective of regional Queensland.

Lincoln Humphries: “For voters in regional Queensland it means that every federal coalition MP and senator has put internal party politics ahead of our right to decide who runs our democracy.”

Later" The Queensland wrecking ball Peter Dutton coming back for another piece of Malcolm Turnbull.

7 Local News Queensland bulletins had limited coverage attempting to work out which side local members supported.


#155

Utterly pointless. The man is an auto cue reader, not a journalist. No one will fall for this.


#156

What is that supposed to mean?


#157

That supposedly he has “insider information” because he’s in Canberra. If he’s not interviewing anyone aside from Seven reporters, what’s the point? No viewers will think “Oh great, Peter Mitchell’s in Canberra but Peter Hitchener isn’t, Seven must know more.” It’s ludicrous.

Hitchener looked much more authoritative in Melbourne. Having Mitchell in Canberra present B-grade crime stories from Geelong is ridiculous.


#158

To laugh at their psychotic behavior … it’s entertaining.


#159

Its… bad for your mental health?

Watch something informative.


#160

WIN Queensland local news opened with national story. Extraordinary commentary by WIN on the situation, wonder if it represents their owner’s views.
