Media briefs: no more Big Ideas … sexy dead tree editions … Bolt endorses Sat Paper …

How many stories about a single sex survey can you fit into the one edition of a newspaper? And other media tidbits of the day.

ABC cancels Big Ideas. Another show has fallen victim to the ABC’s cancellations. Big Ideas, which aired Mondays and Fridays on ABC1 and was fronted by Monash Uni politics lecturer and media commentator Waleed Aly, will not be returning in 2015. It’s a curious cut, as the program largely aired speeches and the like already given elsewhere, giving them a wider audience while presumably putting little pressure on the ABC’s purse.

In a statement on the Big Ideas Facebook page, the show’s team writes:

    Well said, Guy Rundle.

    The Greens candidate for WA state seat of Vasse got 18.0% in the October 18 by-election.

    Some stagnation!

    Why do you knock The Guardian again and again? You should be on the same side of the fence. Is it the Big Brother syndrome? You should also respect the Saturday Paper and New Matilda.
