Thanks to an ABC Media Watch expose, the low standards of Channel 9 have been exposed. Channel Seven don't come out smelling too sweetly either.
A Muslim man was baited by a cameraman , Simon Fuller, with jibes such as f***ing terrorist, to overreact on camera. The victim , a Mr.Gad Amr, who had accompanied his son to court, pleaded for the cameraman to take his shots and go away.
This un-Australian behaviour by the media, particularly TV, is becoming unfortunately more common.
One wonders how often it has occurred in the past when people under stress have cameras poked in their faces and are harassed for comment.
Channels 9 and 7, need to apologise to Mr. Amr.
