To lead or not to lead

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

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?
