With the grown-ups in charge, are student rags going soft?

More students flock to journalism courses — but jobs are another matter

Students are enrolling in journalism courses in greater numbers. But they may find themselves writing snappy slogans for soft-drink companies rather than breaking front-page news.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: meat markets all round

With the NRL game on Nine last night between Souths and Brisbane (won by the Broncos, a News Corp side), Nine won the metros and the regions. And that was the end of the story. A most disappointing night as the networks gird their loins for the big September push to try and win a […]

Nine writes down Sky

 Poor David Gyngell. Last year, he made $19.59 million, boosted by just on $10 million of shares and other benefits (including a big fat cash bonus) as part of the float arrangements. This year, he’s down to $4.48 million — a flat $2 million a year and other short and long-term incentive payments. The $19.5 million made him […]

Let’s have less civil discourse

Horrific legislation still passes in an age when the public broadcaster does not air a tweet suggesting the Prime Minister has a fondness for buttsex. So stop clutching your damn pearls.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: depressing reality

More of the same: Nine won the metros last night from Seven, Ten and the ABC, but in the regions it was Seven, Nine, the ABC and Ten. And nothing stood out at all. The Bachelor on Ten kept us amused with a confected storm out, so nothing to trouble viewers there (and 1.2 million […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: all these channels and nothing but cats

Nine won the metros closely, Seven won the regionals convincingly. Ten was third (narrowly in the regions) and the ABC was fourth. Nothing stood out except one program on 7TWO (that’s my view). That was the repeat of Foyle’s War (370,000 national viewers) on Seven’s 7TWO channel last night (it was on the ABC a decade […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a night for current affairs junkies

A usual Monday night with the ABC’s strong news and current affairs line up doing well, Ten struggling, Nine doing OK (led by the News and ACA) and Seven running hard to stay in line. And that was the metros. In the regions, Seven was an easy winner, from Nine, the ABC and Ten. The […]

It is a truth universally acknowledged … that you should never start sentence with that phrase

Pointless, pretentious throat-clearing. It is a truth universally acknowledged that the next columnist or critic who begins their piece with “It is a truth universally acknowledged …” is likely to be murdered. By me. The weapon will be a blunt instrument (The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary) and my defence at the trial will rest […]
