Media briefs: Clarke and Dawe back … looong campaign … TT: dead or not? …

News Limited's senior executives have missed out on the top two senior executive roles reporting to CEO Robert Thomson in the new News Corporation, the publishing (and pay TV in Australia) arm to be split from the group later this year. Plus other media news.

A new home for Clarke and Dawe. Satirical duo John Clarke and Bryan Dawe will appear in a new, earlier timeslot this year after being dropped by the ABC’s 7.30 program. The ABC announced today that the much-loved mock interview segment will now appear at “6.56pm” Thursdays as a lead-in to the 7pm news.

    Why were C&D dropped from the later slot?
    Did they offend Sales – having too many digs at Abbott – in his own words and music?

    Welcome back to Murdoch’s groan up “organ grinder”? Seen recently, refresher training his “chargers” – and isn’t “Oz” always on a campaign footing – selling conservatism to the masses, 363/4 days a year?
    Just what does he think “playing politics” actually means? “When others do it.”?

    Axe TT, and replace them with an hour of C&D (Clarke and Dawe, not Cease & Desist) 🙂
