Why do 4 tv networks feel the need to send their Sydney based morning show hosts somewhere to "report" on news that hasn't happened yet? (Or indeed even if it has happened ... those people add nothing to the information stream). I had the tv on for half an hour this morning waiting for one of them to tell me what happened in the world overnight, but no, not one of them gave me anything but slightly hysterical drivel about a cyclone approaching Qld.
I gave up when one of those claimed "most experienced reporters" , Sam Armitage, asked the Qld premier if she had warned the insurance companies of the impending cyclone. Jeebus. :roll:
/end rant. Thanks for listening. ;)

:lol: They're still at it and will be all day - just going round and round in circles. Time to change to recordings!

hahaha. I am glad I am not the only one going crazy about this.

Surely an extended weather report on the breakky shows was more than enough, than send over so many reporters who have all said the same things as each other. With the likes of "we are predicting the storm to hit at 1pm" at since 6.30am!!, "the winds speed will be over 200km/h", "listen to police" etc. One reporter is enough to say these things, not five reporters saying nothing new than the other reporters.

Yeah, and today you could almost feel palpable disappointment that there wasn't more destruction/death/drama.
One "reporter" was breathlessly telling us about the canvas shade shelter on a kids playground that had been shredded.

.... well colour ME surprised and SHOCKED at such unexpected carnage! :o :roll:

:lol:

It's unbelievable isn't it!

ETA - some actual pictures this morning of a lot of the devastation, so it happened, but not where any of the reporters were standing on the day/days.

Last night Nine bumped the start of S2 of Chicago Med to next week to show an encore of Love Child. Which had already screened yesterday afternoon, and will no doubt air a couple more times before next ep on Tuesday night.

What irked me the most was the short notice. I only heard about it at 7.30 when the nightly show promos came on after ACA. How many times does a show have to be "encored" in a week when we have catch up tv and recording ability? :roll:

The blanket coverage of THAT convicted criminals return to Australia as if she was some sort of celebrity.

They actually referred to her as a celebrity on the TV this morning. Ridiculous!

sigh. I find the whole media circus around her as ridiculous also. I wish the story of her arrival back in Australia disappears off our screens quite quickly!

I wonder if it'll ever come out whether she knew she was smuggling the drugs, or whether her father or another family member actually did plant them on her.
