Must see TV this hour on WNT, Jeremy Thompson, Emma Hurd, Andrew Wilson, Tim Marshall and Keith Graves all live talking about the Sharon situation. Fascinating, they are the best reporters that Sky have.
I think that the coverage of Aerial Sharon on the BBC last night was good. James Reynolds was talking to Justin, and he was also interviewing someone. I think that BBC world is awesome the way that they cover live news stories. Alastie also did an excellent job of talking to an advisor I can’t remember excatly who is was talking to. News 24 is also good. I live in Canada so I can’t see news 24 only in the evenings is comes on. I’m glad to hear that Aerial Sharon is doing better. It’s too bad that he can’t do politics anymore. But he’s not out of the woods just yet. Last time I heard he was on a ventilator, and being sadated. I hope that he pulls through. I’ll be watching the news soon. Also this is the first story that aired on the National with Peter Mansbridge. They do a good job like the BBC. I wouldn’t stop watching either news for anything. Too good.
What has happened to Greg Milam? He was out on thursday doing lives late in the evening, but I havent seen him since. He must have travelled out with JT and Lisa Hollands, has he gone back after one night? Emma Hurd is doing a live every hour, day and night is seems.
Stuart Ramsey was in Gaza yesterday for Five/ Sky.
caseymorris+Jan 9 2006, 09:03 PM–>(caseymorris @ Jan 9 2006, 09:03 PM) Don’t you get the impresion that the media organisations are a bit disappointed that Sharon is showing signs of recovery?
Is anyone else slightly disturbed by this recent phenomenon of waiting for people to die?
I recall my discomfort at watching the TV waiting for the Pope to die. It seemed to progress a little when Bestie was entering “the final hours of his life”.
Does anyone else recall other people for whom we have waited to die? (Thatcher doesn’t count )
Yes i would tend to agree with this. Its seems that they want them to die so that they have a news agenda. However, one may argue that the sudden stroke of Ariel Sharon is the first major story of 2006 and the news channels want to capitalise on this in terms of attaining viewers.
