One night last week I was flicking between the six o’clock news services and I came across a Channel 9 story about someone’s wedding dress being delivered late for the wedding.
WTF? Look, I feel sorry for them, but THIS IS NOT NEWS.
You don’t want your journos to be aloof and distant from the people, and reporting only on stories that don’t affect anybody. But to run a fully-fledged two minute news story based around something this trivial is really pushing it.
I’m betting it would be enough to make many people switch over and never come back.
(There was a cranky letter in the Green Guide about it, too.)
