Commentary

We’ve gone from total domination by the Rena oil spill to the death of Libyan leader Gadaffi.  The approaches to the story were different in that One News lead with their own report followed by live crosses to Tripoli and New York whereas 3 News relied solely on stories from their global partners.  Hilary Clinton’s text message was a separate story on 3 while it was part of the third story on One.  

Mike McRoberts had an unfortunate bit of difficulty with the teleprompter for story #4. 

Channel 4’s Jonathan Miller looks back on a man who often seemed to be the political equivalent of.. of being on a permanent acid trip.
