SBS swiftly capitalises on Optus' World Cup woes, Daily Mail breaches Press Council standards, alleged pressure from the Chinese Embassy on a 60 Minutes story, plus other media tidbits from the day.
SBS wins from Optus debacle. SBS has stepped in to air World Cup matches over the next couple of days while Optus scrambles to fix its streaming problems. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called Optus CEO Allen Lew to ask him to sort out the repeated playback issues yesterday, and SBS last night announced it would be broadcasting all games live for 48 hours -- "giving all Australians the chance to enjoy the tournament".
Whoever was working the social media accounts for Optus Sport wasn't quite as amiable, picking on a Twitter typo from SBS's official World Cup account. Their tweet has since been deleted, but was captured by the Australian Financial Review's Myriam Robin.
