Media briefs: O’Farrell wash-up … news dump … ABC to China …

Barry O'Farrell's resignation pushes the royals to a close second while the ABC becomes the first Australian broadcaster viewed China-wide... and other media tidbits of the day

Royals trumped. The PR impact of the most photogenic branch of the British royal family was diminished somewhat yesterday, when their touchdown in Sydney barely made the front pages. The Sydney Morning Herald buried its first mention of the royals behind its eight-page Barry O’Farrell wrap-around, while the Daily Tele tried to have it both ways — leading with a big picture of O’Farrell with a footer on the royals, then devoting pages 2-3 to the visit and 4-5 to the resignation.
