Tele relaunches an old war … Angilley exits … ‘ABC will continue to adapt’ …

Sydney's Daily Telegraph has harked back to an old campaign to oppose former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally's run for the seat of Bennelong.

Tele marks its position on Keneally. Former New South Wales premier Kristina Keneally’s announcement she would contest the byelection in Bennelong has given The Daily Telegraph a chance to go back to an old campaign. Its front page today doesn’t leave any question as to the paper’s position on her, despite her very recent role as a presenter at Sky News — both outlets are owned by News Corp.

The front page has echoes of this, from 2009, when Keneally was first named premier.

    “Puppets” really? Sally Zou pulls a couple of strings and up pops Lady Penelope – as “Julie Bishop Glorious” – for kids birthday parties?

      But wait, there’s more …. A couple of passes of Mr Buzz (her magic wand) and Presto!, there’s an important meeting in the same city as her Eagles are playing – and it only costs us a couple of grand each time?
      ….. Which reminds me, I think it’s my turn to open a can of baked beans on Aug 25(?) next year – so she can “be here for that”?

    Glad someone else was as pissed off as me Glen, when “our ABC” went to Antiques Roadshow, instead of the biggest game in town. Major fail right there.

    ABC24 delivered the survey result live but then a reporter did an unnecessary to-camera piece depriving the audience of the background visuals of celebration. Unfortunately some TV news services are under the impression they are broadcasting on radio & judge that a journo’s head is more informative than action visuals.

    However, in Queensland the commercial channels outdid themselves – they were all running on a one hour delay (due to no daylight saving up north) hence, after the results had been announced on ABC24, commercial viewers were subjected to sixty minutes of lead-up & conjecture about what the result might be. I think the Nine Network went ‘live’ with the result briefly but then reverted to the hour’s delay.

    Hmmm, a repeat of Antiques Roadshow?
    Seems, somehow, appropriate.

    The ABC cant win. A lot of their coverage on the result this morning necessarily focussed on the celebrations from Yes supporters. I’d struggle to imagine how they could comprehensively cover this without infuriating the critics who are ready to pounce at any suggestion of bias.
