    Interesting that, at the end of the podcast, Bernard suggested that the decline in political journalism had been happening over two decades. Bernard, what do you think about the impact (if any) of the decision in 1996 to broadcast Parliament and Question Time? Billy Snedden thought it would engage people more. Do you think it had the opposite effect because journos can now just make comments around 10 second grabs from debate?
