Too little too late. Yet more apologies and mea culpas at Sky News over the Blair Cottrell debacle -- for the second time in just over a month it's damage control at the News Corp-controlled pay TV channel for an atrocity that was preventable. What does News Corp Australia boss Michael Miller think? It’s time we heard an explanation from the parent company.

In the meantime at Sky, some changes have been made. A statement from Sky News chief Angelos Frangopoulos on Monday stated Cottrell would not be allowed back on the station and that "after a review of the editorial processes in relation to an interview, Sky has appointed Greg Byrnes to the newly created position of acting program director and named Kaycie Bradford as acting news director”.
