I've just watched the first eleven minutes of Channel Nine's 6pm "news".
First item: the death of Peter Brock (which, as we know, happened yesterday afternoon) -- 5 minutes
Second item: the funeral of Steve Irwin -- 4 minutes
Third item: the Crows' final-quarter five-goal thumping of Freo in the first round of the AFL finals -- 2 minutes
Then there was an ad break. 'After the break, we'll look at the final day of the Royal Adelaide Show.'
Come 6.30, I'll switch over to SBS and see what's in the news.
