WIN News doesn’t know the difference between Lake Tuggeranong and Pine Island?

By johnboy 25 February 2011 28

Reporting breaking news is hard and it’s understandable errors can be made.

But wouldn’t it be nice if the people making the local news bulletin knew the difference between Pine Island, on the Murrumbidgee River and Lake Tuggeranong?

So this is Pine Island:

And this is Lake Tuggeranong:

I’ll admit, they’re definitely both in Tuggeranong. I guess from Wollongong it all looks the same.

It’s an Irish name and spelt Siobhan

I have worked a bit in non western countries with a colleague by the name of Siobhan and the pronounciations/tongue twisting agony of that name to many is very impressive. Of course, Niamh is far worse.

What do you think liberation means?

And have you ever thought that a world which is tolerant of people of all stripes (inlcluding women) might be a better place for a misfit like yourself?

You take it too literally. “Wimmin’s libbers” have nothing to do with freedom, they obsess about “equality” like if women get paid 49% and men get paid 51% they complain, because women make up 51% and men make up 49% of the population. That’s got nothing to do with freedom, and makes a mockery out of “equality” and does their cause no good.

JB, trolls like Mr G are unworthy of your valuable time, which could be spent doing something more useful, like staring into space. Just leave this one handed typist and his porn collection to his own sticky devices (in both senses of the word).

Back on topic, you have to wonder whether some of the commercial channels give a rat’s about local news services – which they only provide because they are forced to by regulation. Thank goodness for VH and the ABC news – at least there is some commitment to quality there.

I want ?Shivorne? Heanu brought back as news presenter

It’s an Irish name and spelt Siobhan, tho I guess there are bogans out there somewhere using Shivorne because it’s uneek and unewesewal. Her last name is Heanue.

I’m sorry Mr G, I realise you live under some pretty dark rocks, but are you suggesting women should not be free?

What? Where did I say women shouldn’t be free??

…………………I remember the day when we had local news on Prime AND Capital (aka “SC Ten”), and we had home-grown talent. Something went rotten around 2001, and we are still suffering a decline today.

I pity your wife…if there is such a person.

Because I rather have the sexy newsreaders??

Virginia Hausseger is a feminist? Well we certainly can’t be having that now can we? That would just upset The Natural order Of Things, wouldn’t it? And a journalist who writes a column in a newspaper? This is going way too far! The next thing you know, Virginia and other women will start having…oh…I dunno…ideas or opinions or something, and the whole bloody world will end up on a slippery downhill slide towards the hell of sexual equality, chaos will descend and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will come galloping out of the doors of the ABC studio onto Northbourne Ave.

And we don’t want that.

If you read her column in The Canberra Times, you’d understand what I’m on about, her radical women’s libber ideas, put-downs of men and how they work, and so on. This has nothing to do with the mere fact she wrote a column in the paper, it is what she wrote about that’s the problem, and the problem is, her theme was all about belittling men. That’s the problem, don’t you get it???

“…..And we don’t want that.” well sir, what we don’t want is opinionated feminist claptrap!

Now…..

There must be some home grown talent that can read the Canberra News surely!

This is a business making millions out of Canberra and they can’t even afford to pay for a graphic artist?

Mr G… wife? lol, if there is a significant other, one can bet her name is “Rosie” lol!
