Nightline Bias

Well Channel 9 outdid themselves with their late night news bulletin, Nightline, last night. I could have been certain that I was watching A Current Affair with an altered background.

For one reason or another, each and every story had to be introduced with an opinion, for example, a story about Victorian highland drovers hering their cattle through national parks was introduced as “it’s illegal, but it’s alright because they are trying to save their heritage” (paraphrased).

Channel 9 are supposed to be a respectable news agency, I do hope this was just a bad night and not a new mandate…unless they are trying to rid themselves of an audience…

Channel 9 are about as credible as FOX is in the usa…
why bother watching such garbage! treat yourself to media watch or lateline …
sure is great for shits a giggles but realistically as you mentioned all their news is accompanied with a bleed your heart out opinion!

I don’t even know why I was watching it. I think somebody else dozed off in front of the TV during the show before it and I walked into the room and spent a bit of time watching it. I became intrigued by the obvious bias and stayed for a while.
