    The only one to watch is the one with Anthony Green. Always 1st with the latest.

    Channel 10 gives me probably a majority of my viewing habits – comedy, light ent, some drama but news analysis and political gravitas – no! It amuses me that every network clamours to provide election coverage. Pointless – may as well provide an alternative for those who are just as happy to read about it in the Sunday paper the next day. For me always ABC first, then Sky, then 9 if i flip channels.

    Whilst I applaud Ten for trying something different with election coverage, possibly not the best move (long term) if they are looking at getting into the 6p-7p news biz.
    Traditional coverage probably would rate lower than this “Election project”, but long term would help build the news brand.
