ONE News broke the spy trial before 3 News – at 6:18pm NZ Herald and Stuff still didn’t have it up. 3 News had footage from inside the spy base trial.
3 News had comprehensive footage from in Fiji, thanks to having Michael Morrah and cameraman there.
What a stupid #5 story on 3 News. No idea why it’s in the lead stories. Should be in an “odd news” section later in the bulletin, if at all.
You could argue either way re: the better story to lead with.
