9:05 Mediawatch
This week on Mediawatch, we hear about reports of the sudden death of a rebel real estate firm last Monday. The pundits said they had seen it coming - but did the news media? The programme also looks at the demise of local comedy show Welcome To Paradise, which looks like it's been killed off by cranky critics. Could that prove to be a bad thing for viewers who like to see local laughs on TV? We also hear about the British newsreader who's admitted "I'm not worth my wages" - and what the latest survey of newspaper and magazine readership reveals.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Cushla Managh
