Coun­try dis­com­fort

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Guide -

from Tif­fany, Castle­maine IF THERE was ever any doubt about the lack of re­gard paid to coun­try Vic­to­ria by the me­dia, it is now painfully ob­vi­ous. Peter Hitch­ener now de­liv­ers a bla­tant slap-in-the-eye to re­gional view­ers, end­ing the news bul­letin with a not-so-sub­tle ‘‘Melbourne, that’s what’s news . . .’’ It’s one thing to present news items that are mostly city-fo­cused, but to bla­tantly ig­nore coun­try view­ers by di­rectly ad­dress­ing Melbourne view­ers is dis­re­spect­ful and in­sult­ing in the ex­treme.

Blokes in aprons: Gor­don Ram­say is get­ting men into the kitchen.
