    What you mean predigested and regurgitated US Dateline that I can download and watch myself any time I want now?

    OK Sound-of-One-Hand-Fapping, Spiny Norman Handscum and the other lackeys of the Stinking Sun King – tell this isn’t part of the Murdocratic Anschluß.

    If they dumb it down like 60 mins then no one will watch it. The brain dead are already captured on ch9/7/10.

    Easily been the most important program on oz tv for a long time. Typically, the powers that be & those who serve them will wish it gone.

    “Journalism is what the powerful don’t want revealed – all else is advertsing”.
    What proportion of 4Corn is bought in, mostly UK’s Panorama but often sludge from the US cornsyrup name-sake?
    Without Dateline, what would be the point of Insight?
    Then that news thingy, full of ads & sport, and what’s with all that foreign stuff? Could be subversives!

    I suppose if dateline hadn’t done such good stories on ebola then TA would not need to “waste” money on it.

    Rhwombat, at least the other posters, while hardly mounting a sound analysis of the issue, at least wrote mostly coherent sentences.
    Why not make a supreme effort to match their efforts?
