steve smith

the people fighting the bushfires are heroes, the police, fire and ambulance services are heroes, the men and women serving in our armed forces defending us here and overseas are heroes. Steve Smith is NOT a hero, he is a cheat and a liar who should have been banned for life from cricket. Take this ridiculous ad down stating that he is a hero, it is an insult to the real heroes in our community

Media attention for criminals

I am writing in disgust the media coverage that has been given to serial killer Ivan Malat in the last few days.
I think the Australian public would like to forget this scumbag for good without having to watch coverage about him on TV.

Also Shappelle Corby on this afternoon a drug trafficker please!
Havent you got anything else to report except these pair of criminals get over it.
Report good news for change.

Over advertising programmes

Thank you channel 7, another tv series ruined, this constant over advertising of the next episode to be shown or “what’s coming next” during the show makes it impossible to enjoy any tv series any more, showing the crucial parts of the programme totally ruins it, with no point in watching, happens so many times, this time it literally ruined “A Confession” all mystery gone, I won’t be watching a series on channel 7 again, it’s just not worth it :( thanx

Wimbledon coverage

Why why why would you make us endure Nick kyrios game when the amazing world number 1 is playing!!!!!!! How ridiculous to think that anyone would rather watch the worst behaved Australian athlete over the brilliant Ash Barty. All that is needed from that game is to have his score in a corner while we watch a fantastic Australian number 1. She is amazing for our 12 and 14 year old to watch not the toddle tantruming kyrios!!!!!! Stop playing him over Ash Barty

AFL Coverage on 7Mate

I am disgusted with 3 out of the 4 commentators who covered Eagles and Essendon last night. Xavier was the only one doing a reasonable job. Basil, Brian and Wayne please stop the the endless chatter about statistics, events from100 years ago, JKs illness and that bloody taxi..stop and call the bloody game... The garbage chatter is common every week but last night was a disgrace...almost taking the level of waffle down to Dermot's standard of chatter being ground zero. The camera work was woeful, quality of the broadcast below standard and overall a terrible coverage. Just for the record I am not a fan of the Eagles or Essendon...just Luke's good game if football and to hear it called properly. Please lift your game commentators and Channel 7.

Max Fucher

Can you please replace Max Fucher as the main newsreader on the 6pm broadcast news in Brisbane. He seems like a very nice man and I believe he is a good journalist, but his delivery is terrible and it makes listening to the news irritating.
Max has a strange, halting delivery which lacks fluency. His phrasing and intonations are wrong and the impact of the words is often lost. It is a relief to have Kaye McGrath read the news on the weekend. Her smooth delivery shows her experience and capability as a newsreader. I can no longer tolerate Max and have turned to channel 9, where Andrew Lofthouse and Melissa Downes, present a much more enjoyable viewing experience. However. My preference is actually for channel 7, just can't put up with Max Fucher any longer.

1st leaders debate

You bloody left wingers should be ashamed of yourselves.We thought only the ABC was in bed with chairman mao and josef stalin!
But to stack the audience with commos was doing just what aunty does all the time! Anyone watching at home with half a brain[so that rules out the 51% that seem to want free money that the lib/nat voters will have to provide] know that scott Morrison won it by a country mile!
The leftie stooges were clapping before the goofy grinning red bill even spoke!
Why do you want a left wing govt when now,more than any other time in history ,thanks to the internet are more global than ever! And every wage rise will send more companies overseas and have more unemployment with fewer & fewer people working to get tax off!I lived in sweden in the late 80's and at that time a third of the population was working,keeping 2/3rds on some sort of pension! BLOODY DIISGRACEFUL!

tv coverage

Channel pathetic are still at it, no more Afl games than last year,Cricket since taking over the coverage is near non existent, golf is gone, absolute ALP (billy short on brains ) bias on news, gutless wonders bullying Pauline Hanson. Does channel pathetic have any new ideas on the horizon to better the free to air coverage of any of the sports they have stolen from the public or is the money that is so important that they just do not give a shit unless there is a dollar in it? The coverage ( if any ) the commentary, the time slots it is all crap. Ten and seven had done a fantastic job in comparison. The Australian public deserve a much better deal than you money hungry thieves are offering. The only thing LIVE AND FREE every ball, every game, (bullshit.) on this big headed network are the adds that you constantly air for your own shows coming up. You really are pathetic 7.

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 ..
