Didn’t have enough on any particular topic so took a shotgun approach to see what gains a reaction.

In reality you could gather a whole heap of questionable aspects on any industry and cram it into a 45 min piece of TV.

Jaundiced and oddly defensive view that. If you're in the industry or a punter surely you want to see racing cleaned up - unless you're corrupt or a supporter of corrupt or careless trainers of course. Unsurprisingly, many comments I saw like that were accompanied by the standard bogan ABC bias tosh. It's possible they wanted to do doping but found few who would comment. Brissenden was out of his depth - either didn't think the topic was heavy enough, or just didn't care. It missed the mark because it didn't have focus.

It can be viewed on ABC Iview if you want to form your own opinion.

Wouldn't they lap it up ?




If what we witnessed was the standard of reporting required, year 8 media class could do it.

There is no question that particular 4 Corners episode was poor.

Why anybody would want the same mob to handle a bigger fish is beyond me.

Well it is not really, We ALL know 4 Corners is usually superior to that.

Not unless it somehow involves a celebrity bust-up or a miracle cure for back pain.

The Murdoch press could have a go- no doubt concluding its all due to too much tax and too many foreign horses.

Are those really the only choices? a large proportion of the population wouldn’t watch any of these channels, let alone get their news from them.

So was there anything insightful or enlightening in it?

Anyone see today,s news report of a mass grave of greyhound bodies found on a property in western Sydney, along with other dogs in a dreadul condition ?  Seized by the rspca, from a licenced trainer.
Looks like all the procedures supposedly in place arnt working too well ?  Cry
