    Default Tonights News

    Tonights news on TV will be all about This. Sure it was a tragedy but I don't know why we should get about half an hour about it on the news tonight. There will be interviews with this that and other people as will.

    Quite right, Trev, which is why I always record the news so I can skip over all that, so called, "in depth" reporting. A much better way of watching the news.

    I think that TV1, in particular, could shorten the news hour to half an hour and still fit all the stories in, minus all those boring talking heads.

    I imagine that if you have an hour to fill and not very much to fill it with they need to make each story as long as they can.

    I'm certain that the news would be much more palatable (and shorter) if you and me were running it!

    They should be honest and say nothing much happened today. We arent going to pad any news items out to fill in time, we are going to play an abba music vid or something

    PC madness personified. I guess it takes everyone's mind off the economy and Phil Goff.

    How many young people have been killed in car crashes in the last 30 days and no one gives a shi*?

    Largely agree, fair enough having a modest length article, but something like 5-6 people die on our roads every week.

    There is always a ton of international news they could use that is more interesting, but its like they try and fill a NZ content quota or something. TV 1 & 3 even spend like 20 minutes on sport every night often when there is barely anything worth mentioning, absolute snore fest.
