Bum­mer of a news item

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

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.
