Win News Doesn’t Know Who John Hargreaves Is?

By thelozenger - 16 September 2009 20

Did anyone else see the blooper on the 6:30pm Win Local News tonight?

When interviewing John Hargreaves instead of his name coming up in the information box, it simply said ‘Person’s Name Here’

Apparently WIN News has forgotten who he is?

The thing that frustrates me most as a Journalism student is when I see newspapers/news programs doing the exact opposite of what I’m being taught is the basics of reporting. It’s amazing the poor quality in so much of the news we get

This item was quoted in Canberra Times today, and they even lifted the screen grab – but all without crediting the sources. Just ‘posted online’.
Poor form CT.

Seven were doing this to almost every driver they interviewed during the Phillip Island 500 last weekend.

The 7pm ABC news also seems to get at least one subtitle wrong every night (sometimes hilariously). They also occasionally have a black screen with the story title name etc pop up for a few seconds. I read somewhere they were now using some sort of automated studio so I wonder when the bugs will be ironed out?

Have a read of Media Watch’s treatment of the situation: http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s2618239.htm

At least if it is automated the bugs should be consistent.

Ooooh! The resemblance is uncanny

Isn’t it though?

Someone’s stuffed up!

Doesn’t seem to be many reporters there anymore anyway.

This story was actually about demolishing one of the closed schools to make way for houses (they say for aged care). There seems to be nothing in there but houses – nothing in the way of community facilities, which directly ignores the community consultation in 2007 (and later). CROWK made some good submissions on this matter, indicating aged care would be fine (so much for all the kids in the area), but that an integrated facility that is so much more than housing is what they really wanted. See their website: http://www.crowk.org.au/

Of course, we all know school closures was about land development, so it’s not like it is a surprise. And to really get with the conspiracy theory: Mt Neighbour had a parent that caused the government a lot of grief and embarrassment during the closure process, demanding access to thousands of FOI documments (http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/02/13/1847086.htm). Paradoxically, it is also the facility that the wider community is least likely to make any noise about when demolishing the school – having collectively indicated they would be happy with aged care.

I have yet to meet anyone that will admit that they voted for him.

bd84 10:28 pm 16 Sep 09

I wish I didn’t know who he was, the people who keep voting him back in need to be shot.

I could try and catch it off the WIN late/repeat news at around midnight, but I can’t be bothered.
