Seven News Content and Appearance

I thought that Paul Dowsley’s report on tonight’s Melbourne bulletin about Dan Andrews’ resignation came across as very biased. It was promoted as a story about his successes and failures, but it came across as a two minute critique about his failures with almost no reference to his successes.

I don’t agree with everything Andrews did over his nine year tenure, but I would have appreciated some balance in this report.

Just watched it. Disagree. It listed off his achievements too including level crossing removals.

On 7Brisbane, they followed up with “what does this mean for Annastasia Palaszczuk?” with Sharyn Ghidella asking state political reporter Marlina Whop, “will this again raise speculation about the future of her leadership?”
What utter crap. It’s only the media that’s speculating.

Don’t think it was mentioned explictly on here but the national backdrop graphics in Sydney were updated at the start of this month. Less of the “muddy/yellow” look to them.
The left-hand side seems to be have been simplified a bit too.

Nice touch in Melbourne last night with a heap of balloons popping up behind Mitch, who is a Collingwood supporter and appears to have worn the same black and white tie all week.

From what I know, Peter Mitchell has presented the Melbourne bulletin on Grand Final day in years past.

Mitch is winning now. So he’s no longer required.

Not sure if I’m the only one but I hate the Melbourne backdrop at 6pm. Way too busy. Nine’s higher level view is much easier on the eye.
