  1. Whilst making upcoming TV shows a news story is not unusual (News 24 does it a lot with in-program promotions for things like 4 Corners) and we often see reality shows promoted during the news, Seven’s effort last night was unique with close to ten minutes of in-program promotions during the news hour plus commercials for it at every break.

    There really do need to be some limits on this especially when the news gyrates between promoting a talent show and then war in Ukraine, ten dead in an explosion in Ireland and two teenagers killed in a Canberra car crash. The gyrations in tone can snap your neck.

  2. Not surprised about AGT Seven was blowing its own trumpet big time Saturday night news, it was part of their news bulletin before the sport section and again after a commercial break and before the weather. It was like watching an info commercial dropped purposely in amongst all of it.
