Paul Barry returns with his first Media Watch for 2018 tonight.
Episode 1 looks at whether Nine News is being compromised by a network sponsor, Officeworks.
Last week saw Australian kids head Back to School …and for Channel Nine it marked a new milestone in blurring the line between news and ads, with sponsored content for the advertiser run in national afternoon bulletins.
We also look at the govt’s proposed new espionage laws in light of the ABC cabinet files.
Online extra ‘Media Bites’ also returned last Thursday with extra grabs you can see via the show’s Twitter or Facebook pages.
9:18pm tonight on ABC.
