David Koch's Interview with Sen. Pauline Hanson

I think it is high time that David Koch be brought into the HR Department and had a reality check about his behaviour on the Sunrise Show.

The nicest thing I can say about David Koch is that he is a grub. Koch and his mate Derryn Hinch attacked Pauline Hanson like a pair of Rottweiler dogs who hadn’t been fed for 7 days.

The pair them were disgusting as they went on their attack against Pauline Hanson. Koch must have felt very empowered that he had a fellow assailant with similar views to him so the pair of them could tag team to stop her saying anything to defend herself from his highly offensive diatribe.
Pauline Hanson and Fraser Anning are expressing the views of most clear minded Aussies. Why should they be attacked for their views.

Koch came across as a big time BULLY and left me wondering if this is his true self.

He didn’t come across as a TV presenter or a journalist. He came across as a self-serving misogynist. He either needs counselling or shown the door.

Shame on David Koch. Shame.

Bullie-lake of respect

I watched,and was disgusted with the interview, I don't agree with every thing Pauline Hanson, has to say. but to be bullied, not debated to,in a respectful way, to me Koch and Hinch , were no better, in their reaction, than the argument or point they were trying to get across, to make people hate her, she is the only one who does stand up and talk about problems in our country,that should be debated, they talked about the head dress stunt in parliament, wasn't there a police officer, charged with assault, nearly lost his job, for asking a women to remove it, only lucky he had his camera going, talking about the wast of money with ADSIC, when certain tribes gave themselves more and others got nothing, look at Richo going to a camp out west,under labor,to find a disgrace, and a aboriginal asking when they would see some relief, crying his eyes out and promising change, he resigned 2 weeks later, she is the only one to fight for the last 20 odd years, for changes in Family Law, which kill and maim, thousands of children and family's every year, funding the law society members to the tune of$40 billion per year? X-PM Howard, denigrating her stands on things, only to quietly pass a lot through, when they got rid of her through her own naivety, how many politician stay true to their conviction and how many lie though their teeth and as for this mornings episode, she at least had more balls than them, to sit there and take their a salt, and still wright or wrong, stick to her word, racism is well used by ignorant people, who have no better argument to make a counter discussion, she at least gets an issue talked about, not like some of the other gutless wonders, who only want to do nothing, drought, water, pollution, farmers, aboriginals, people on the streets, some 6500 over 65, woman and children etc, and who, of these polite unassuming lot,have any forward plan to build this country and take real care of its people.
PS. If as on the news, you said she agreed with that other asshole, were did she say it, Kochie and Hinch implied it, when she said she wouldn't vote, it would go no were, even the other party's agreed, let the people vote, what a load of mongrel's you have made yourselves. APOLOGISE TO HER, IF YOUVE GOT SOME DECENCY IN YOU.

David Koch dismissal

I strongly condemn the program featuring David Koch,Senator Pauline Hansen and Senator Derryn Hinch on the channel 7 Sunrise program today Monday 18th March 2019. It was an absolute disgrace Senator Hansen was bullied by these two men and I believe that David Koch should be sacked from the Sunrise Program. I have had enough of the constant bullying by the media of interviewees by interviewers. David Koch needs to be dismissed !! - Bully !!!

MKR Advetising

Why is it that channel 7 once again bombards ever channel under their control with offensive advertising in relation to this show. Again this year I am frustrated that the disgusting advertising lead by Manu's behaviour is broadcast at times when children are viewing the vial behaviour?

Yet again its time to boycott channel 7'

Bus and pedestrian

Channel 7 6 pm news covered the tragic story of the bus that killed a 70 y.o. Gentleman on a crossing showing green light. Despite the news reader saying the impact wouldn’t be shown because it was too confronting, the footage continued until just before the impact, Leaving everything to one’s imagination. Did you consider how this would effect family, friends, children and TV viewers? I have just switched to Channel 7 and was really disgusted and disappointed by the apparent lack of compassion.

BBL Coverage

My 10 year old asked me to help him make a complaint about channel 7’s BBL coverage.
My son is upset because he can’t watch his favourite BBL team play. He wants channel 7 to give it back to channel 10 because they had better coverage.

Also, please stop showing inappropriate advertisements for adult content TV shows during kid friendly shows.

My kitchen rules

Very disappointed over the last couple of seasons about the nastiness of this show.This is a cooking show why do you have such nasty people on it? It spoils the whole show and l will not be watching it anymore. In this day and age people should be building each other up not constantly being rude and horrible. If this is what you need for ratings well !!!!!! You have lost me and my family.

So much for watching the BBL live every night, You have 4 channels and still can't show the cricket to the public. Instead you show reruns of old show. Bye bye 7 never again.

News bias

I have watching your 7 News on a daily basis for many years.
I have come to the conclusion the format and commentary is slanted to the left side of politics at both a State and Federal level.
Today's lead story about the Light Rail Project was just a rehash of old news and only scant coverage was given to power blackouts in Victoria as this was only a minor matter as far as your Newsroom is concerned.
Your reporters never ever mention that the ALP spent $500 million on light rail to Rozelle for no tangible result.
Whatever happened to Mr Foley who after the scandal involving an ABC reporter vanished from the 7 News after 1 day.
What about Wal Secord's disastrous interview with Ben Fordham on 2GB. Apparently it suited your Newsroom to ignore this event.
You spend too much time promoting Bill Shorten when any forensic examination of his past raises many unanswered questions.
You would rather focus on Barnaby Joyce's private indiscretions and totally ignore Mr Shortens similar ones.
I could go on and on and would suggest a bit more balance.
If I could speak to Jason Morrison I would but he seems invisible in terms of setting a balanced format from your station.

Channel 7 advertised last year that they will show "every ball of every game" of cricket. What about the one day games!!!
Please bring it back to channel 9 as the telecast is far better and the commanantry on channel 7 is so so bad!!!

Good afternoon, I wish to add my complete disappointment in your pathetic coverage of Cricket!!
You are losing viewers because you are so haphazard with your delivery of content (Games)
Question you have paid a lot of money to cricket Australia? Why give them a dollar if you don't get full coverage of games.

Contrary to popular belive Not every one has or wants Foxtel . You do now have a lot of channels which you put repeat crap on.
A TV service provider could do worse than turn one Chanel into SPORTS COVERAGE !! And another into film and not Repeats of Repeats.. You are losing viewers because you are not meeting the challenge of new viewing habits ..

Cricket Broadcast

I wish to express my complete disgust in Channel 7 not broadcasting ODI cricket this season (and as I understand it for the next 5 seasons). I am a support worker and each year I have organised groups of disadvantaged people, men and women, young and elderly of many different nationalities to meet to watch ODI cricket matches. This became so popular these people who are socially and/or economically challenged and have not much else in their lives, were looking forward to each cricket season. These meetings would be held in the homes of those people who could afford a television. Now that Channel 7 has taken over cricket broadcasting this event has ceased, leaving some members devastated. Your decision not to broadcast ODI Cricket matches has had a huge impact on the lives of some of the community who do not have a lot of social activities to look forward to and who most certainly cannot afford pay TV. From my own perspective, Channel 7 broadcast is amateurish in comparison to Channel 9. Well done Channel 7

Impartial news coverage

Sunrise Morning Show drop in standards.
For the past few weeks the new morning show male presenter has displayed his total lack of respect for certain politicians including th current prime minister. Obviously the Chanel 7 station believe it is OK to openly mock and treat rudely the people it does not agree with.
Suprisingly there are a great many Australians who admire Fraser Anning's courage in voicing his concerns about the rise in Sudanese crime gang voilence. When mocking Mr Anning's view on the Queensland now being affected ; maybe the Sunrise presenter should have watched the previous few weeks Chanel 7 evening news.
Disrespectful, smug, arrogant, self serving little brat.
I for one will cast my vote with my remote and find another source of daily news. Hopefully one which can deliver it in a fair and impatial manner.
Good bye ; you now have another lost viewer

Sydney to Hobart coverage Sunrise

Have been trying to watch Sunrises ‘Live coverage’ of the ending of the Sydney to Hobart race. What a joke!!! 10-15 minutes before the finish you show an old clip of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ not to mention your other repetitive news clips. Thank God for the ABC for their excellent coverage of the ending who gave it the full coverage it deserved. Let’s hope if Chnnel 7 get the rights next year that they can do a much better job. It couldn’t get worse.

English language

When the Sunrise team read the news or anything, the person who writes it on the screen for them to read, should be sacked.
People are WHO not THAT.
Even the out the field news reporters say people THAT instead of people WHO.
The other week someone said People, One of WHICH said. One of Which - for goodness sake.
Unless they can speak correctly they shouldn't be on TV.

PGA golf coverage

Very amateurish coverage, do they realise their ads don’t have to stop them recording the live playing, therefore why can’t they replay what was missed during the ads. That doesn’t sound hard, I wish someone could fix this ASAP. So hard to watch

Cricket Coverage

I was already very dissapointed with the lack of cricket coverage from channel 7. Was thinking okay we still get the Big Bash, only to find there are 4 games this weekend and not one is covered. Not even a delayed broadcast. Pathetic channel 7, who is the goose that gave you the broadcast rights and who makes these decisions? Please sack them. Until now I was happy with 7, changed rapidly.

Rain in Sydney

And I quote from "Sam" this morning..."keep your kids home from school if you can..." Sorry, is this official advice from the Sunrise team? What are they doing here? Can they leave it to the adults and the teachers and the school representatives to make informed decisions and informed advice please???? Can you show some intelligence and stop mouthing off with meaningless statements ??

Cricket coverage

I don’t normally do this but am so disappointed with the scant free to air coverage of cricket under the 7 banner that I have to speak out. Cricket coverage is even worse than AFL coverage since 7 and Foxtel became involved and it means that many people such as me are now unable to watch a complete coverage as we can’t afford Foxtel. I’m afraid that my days of viewing 7 are coming to an end. I do realise that this will have no bearing on the situation as the decisions made are obviously financially driven but you should be aware that a great number of people are in the same situation as me and the short term gains currently being enjoyed could well be reversed in time.

Channel 7 golf coverage

Every day the coverage is cut off before the final groups finish.Then we are subject to a repeat of Bondi rescue. Why doesn't programming switch the final coverage to 7 mate for eastern states viewers and remain on 7HD for Perth so us people watching on TV can see the end to the round.
Poor form indeed. Very amateurish
