Less scrutiny of State politics – ABC’s 7.30 Qld axed

Axing of 7.30 Report a blow to scrutiny of state politics

Natalie Bochenski writes in the Brisbane Times (25.11.14) about the ABC cuts, and particularly the demise of the state-based 7.30 Report. ‘The death of Queensland’s only local current affairs television program will reduce scrutiny of state politics’, according to QUT’s Professor of Media and Communications, Terry Flew, ‘the number of people involved in the coverage of state politics around Australia had fallen dramatically this century’.
