Dear Channel 7...

SeanE

I loathe sport on TV...
About the 4.00pm news...

If you're going to broadcast it nationally then perhaps it should be a *️national*️ level bulletin and not simply the Sydney local news.

Anyone beyond the Blue Mountsins truly doesn't give a damm about the local traffic conditions and local traffic accidents, which local business got robbed or burnt down or whatever, which suburbs are the best for real estate, and especially whatever is going on in the Rugby which only you and the Qld-ers really give a damm about. The other States say they care but really, we don't even remember the team names much less know whichever player's manager has scored a PR spot that night for his guy.

If you want to be a national broadcaster then acknowledge there are places other than Sydney, Melbourne, occasionally Brisbane, and Adelaide - but only if they've done something *️really*️ interesting, that exist in Australia.

#️NotMyAustralia: Anger over Seven's 'racist' Sunday Night segment

"Barely a week goes by when they're not in the news. African gangs running riot, terrorising, robbing, wreaking havoc," went presenter Alex Cullen's fiery opening, blaming "political correctness" for police reluctance to "admit there's a problem".
The clip sparked an immediate backlash online, with Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane among those criticising Seven.

"The promotion of this smacks of fear-mongering and racial hysteria," he wrote in a Twitter post. "Disappointing to see this kind of approach – it's a recipe for division and racial profiling."

has ch 7 always been this right wing?
No I don't think so, but it seems they have definitely swung in that direction in the last couple of years. I haven't been in AU during that time ofc but I always watched Seven News before because I loved Chris Bath, and didn't mind Mark Ferguson... and Nine's Peter Overton comes across as pompous. I never thought of Seven as having a right leaning bias before I left though. Except for perhaps in 2010 when they stalked former NSW transport minister David Campbell at a gay sex on premises venue.

CHANNEL 7 News has been accused of being soft on racism and neo-Nazi groups after it interviewed a far-right leader but failed to mention he had been convicted of racial vilification.
