Mediawatch for 28 April 2024

From Mediawatch, 9:08 am on 28 April 2024

Mediawatch this week looks at the sudden appointment of a new Minister of Media and Communications - and what went wrong for the outgoing one.                

Also - while our TV broadcasters are cutting back their news to the bare minimum, news is still lucrative for Australian TV networks - and it’s so competitive they often end up in court.
