If you had been watching Channel Nine last night you could be mistaken for thinking Shocking had just won the Melbourne Cup.
Nine played a News promo from last month in the middle of late night dramedy Burying Brian.
“Celebrations are in full swing for connections of the Mark Kavanagh-trained Shocking, after the 4 year old victory in the Melbourne Cup,” Wendy Kingston said.
“Sydney punters battle through 37 degree heat at Randwick.
“And St. George and the big four banks have moved swiftly to pass on today’s quarter of a percent rate rise.”
Umm, no the rate rise yesterday when last we checked…
It was followed by Peter Overton spruiking a story in “tomorrow night’s” Nine News. The Sydney News.
And it was played in Melbourne.
Now if only we could get Nine to be “first” with the news of the Melbourne Cup winner before it had actually run. That would really be something.
