To lead or not to lead
IT’S hard to find a bigger local story this year than the death of a worker at the Inpex site on Thursday. Bushy doesn’t enjoy throwing mud at his fellow media because he’s far from perfect but he couldn’t help but notice it wasn’t the lead story on the new-look Nine
News Darwin. Instead, they chose to lead the bulletin with the royal commission into banking yarn. We know the new set-up has a changed format but surely there’s a contingency in place when there’s a major local story? What happens if there’s a serious cyclone bearing down on the Top End? Would it still be the second item on the 6pm news?
