Media briefs: Hockey sues … Ten’s saviour … family ties …

Channel Ten could still be saved -- if Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox or News Corp were willing to stump up some serious cash. Plus other media tidbits of the day.

How News Corp could save Ten. The Ten board meets today, and the losses are likely to keep coming. According to The Australian, Ten’s dud breakfast show Wake Up will go, along with the late night and morning news broadcasts. At least 50 jobs in the news division and in production are reportedly to be cut, taking the number in the past 18 months to more than 150 in news alone.

    Surely Hockey can’t be defamed, who could have a lower opinion of him than they have at the moment?

    Ref Smokin’ Joe, as the article stated that Smokin was attending a paid for function for the Liberal party coffers (cash for comment? in NSW such inferences end up with ICAC), who is paying smokin’s legal costs.
    I would hope it is the Liberal party (or even smokin), and not the tax payers as he is the litigant not the Australian Government (or is it?).

    Unfortunately truth is not a good defence against liable.
    I agree with MattH.
