Our very own WIN News makes it onto Media Watch

By johnboy 15 August 2006 33

Last night was not a good one for our friends at WIN News.

They were Media Watch’s Front Page story for their inability to understand a simple joke being used by the Lifesavers to raise awareness of the risks of drowning.

Despite not giving their reporter James Goodwin enough time to cover the event properly and realise the joke WIN were blaming the lifesavers in their pathetic explanation for the cockup:

“The Royal Life Saving Society of the ACT has apologised for misleading the Canberra community over a fictitious proposal to redevelop Yarralumla Beach. Executive Officer Peter Castle today admitted the story was a bizarre, some would say irresponsible and stupid, stunt to try and raise awareness of drownings.

WIN News, significantly dumber than 2CC.

What’s Your opinion?

If we are going to have underwater big brother, can I be one of the people who holds the housemates under until they stop talking?

Mr Evil 3:30 pm 17 Aug 06

Yes, Christine is very cute!

I’d let her do my washing and ironing anytime! 🙂

“There is one decent journo on Win news. It’s a girl, can’t remember her name, but her knowledge of correct english is impressive. There was a time when most journos had this knowledge, but those days are gone.”

Christine Wallace?

There is one decent journo on Win news. It’s a girl, can’t remember her name, but her knowledge of correct english is impressive. There was a time when most journos had this knowledge, but those days are gone.

Yeah, they sure do … just before the carving knife comes out.

Absent Diane 4:14 pm 16 Aug 06

you know that crazy chicks go off in bed..

Mr Evil 4:10 pm 16 Aug 06

AD, there is such a thing as too far: just close your eyes and imagine being in a confined space with CC and the Head of the CIT.

See, not a pretty picture!

James-T-Kirk 3:54 pm 16 Aug 06

WTF is Win news. What foxtel channel is it on?

Absent Diane 3:53 pm 16 Aug 06

Mr Evil – repeat after me..

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO FAR

although the fact that you want see bonfire tied and gagged is a little disturbing!!

Mr Evil 3:48 pm 16 Aug 06

Yeah, maybe I took that idea just a little too far.

What I really would like to see is Bonfire tied up and gagged in a room filled with really enthusiastic and sweaty recumbant cyclists. 🙂

Whoah there, Mr Evil. I’m not standing anywhere near that. I’d probably lose an arm.
