CHANNEL 10 NEXT FOR SKID ROW
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
There is one common factor in the ongoing disintegration of Australia’s media... the Left wingers are now the first to be shown the door.
Channel 10 CEO Hamish McLennan has taken a chainsaw to non-performing programs. He has woken up and has canned its floundering morning show, ‘Wake Up’.
Leftie, Charlie Pickering of ‘The Project’ (no relation, I hope) has shot through before the axe fell and the defender of Islam, activist Waleed Aly, is the next to go.
Are television CEOs finally realising far-Left programming doesn’t rate?
Channel 10’s ‘Wake Up’ producers and hosts Natarsha Belling and James Mathison gave ‘pensioner’ Vilma Ward (pictured with her hero, Uncle Kev) the on-air opportunity to rip strips off Tony Abbott.
Unfortunately (for Channel 10 that is) Tony Abbott appeared to be aware of the cosmetically challenged Vilma’s ALP background.
She and the hosts were sprung, leaving viewers shaking their heads and reaching for the remote.
The SMH reported that sources said, “...many behind-the-scenes employees such as camera operators, floor managers and editors have already started looking for new jobs.”
Those still left in the failing Fairfax papers are clinging to their Marxist ideology. They will hang on like Custer to the bitter end because they, not their CEO, run Fairfax papers.
On-line news and comment is swamping traditional media. Left diehards who infiltrated it decades ago are now being exposed and it’s reflected in balance sheets.
The ABC, with its Press affiliate 'The Guardian', is not taking on any staff, Marxist positions are no longer available, and if it relied on competitive ratings to survive, the ABC would have been in the hands of the receiver long ago.
What Left journos don’t realise is that it is they who are allowing their hated Murdoch to survive the longest.
In a few years Rupert, along with his share of Sky, will stand alone against a bourgeoning internet, the rubble of a once-great Oz media at his feet.
A Channel 10 spokesman said this morning, "We do not comment on rumours and speculation, which is all these stories are." Yeah, yeah.
Rumour has it that Channel 7 has also decided to discard a few of its more in-your-face radicals.
The Left and red ink make bloody good bedfellows.
