Bummer of a news item
First we had ‘‘ Choppergate’’, when a TV crew faked attendance at a news story. Then we had the hundreds of thousands offered to the Bali drug boy before the trial was even over. The last straw wasmonday night’s news. To feature three drunken idiots who branded their backsides with a hot poker as a feature news story was the height of poor taste. I will never watch Channel 9 News again.
