One thought on “Newsreader fashion: a Crikey field guide

    Thanks for all the information I’ve never wanted to know. However, I have three questions.
    1) Why are all these photos out of focus? (with the exception of the first one.)
    2) Why do the ABC’s newsreaders always hang onto their notes, whilst carefully reading their auto-cues?
    3) So many newsreaders, so few television stations?
