Domain’s cosy mentions … Nine gets a kick out of Queensland … Trump’s Time …

Fairfax's Domain lift-out carried a story featuring an advertiser as its case study this weekend. Could we be seeing more of this now it has been spun-off?

A sign of Domain’s future? Could this be a sign of what’s to come for Domain, since Fairfax spun off its property section last week? In the newspaper lift-out over the weekend was a story about buyers’ preference for older-style apartments over new builds, using for its case study a property advertiser (with a profile on the Domain website), Andrew Harlock, and his son Angus. We look forward to seeing how the newly floated outfit approaches reportage in the future.

Nine puts the boot in. Nine never does its election coverage by halves, and Saturday night’s Queensland election special was no exception. This year, to illustrate MPs getting booted from their seats, a digital robot, “Wally the Maroon”, took a run-up and kicked a football emblazoned with the face of the losing MP.

    Emily got it wrong too! Bob Katter is the MHR for the Federal seat of Kennedy, he is not a Senator.

      Yes but why? How?

        You beat me to it, Peter. How DOES this happen? Explanation, please.

    Trump’s obsession with Time is entirely appropriate in the historical perspective. Sometime in the early 1980s I came across some early 1930s editions of Time magazine in, of all places, the Cuzco markets in the Peruvian Andes. One of them featured Stalin on the front cover as ‘man of the year’ and there were a number of feature articles on Lenin, Trotsky, and Hitler, all portrayed in a relatively sympathetic light.
