What has happened to news values in our national media?

STEVE CANAVAN: The case of the 'kitchen' door is open and shut

Have your say

Is anyone else as bored as I am of hearing about all the developmental milestones of our future king on his three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand with his parents?

I don’t care which of them held him up to get a better view, or to have a better picture taken.

It makes no odds to me, or to my life, that he threw a toy on the ground, or that he snatched one from another child.

What has happened to news values that this sort of stuff makes national headlines, while 300-plus children are presumed drowned on a ferry in South Korea and we’ve forgotten about them already?

It’s high time the national media in this country started to think about its priorities and stopped dribbling like a baby over Prince George.
