ONIONS, A RAINBOW BUT NO SUNRISE

By Mike Welsh

It was the morning after and they were all there to cover it, well almost..

Cash strapped Channel Ten managed a van and a tent. Nine had Karl and Lisa and a crew of thousands.  Sky TV’s everyman on political spills, Kieran Gilbert was there and the ABC’s comprehensive coup coverage was complimented by it’s Canberra crew and a smart suited Barry Cassidy.And there were onions. But no David Koch from Seven’s Sunrise.

A smattering of moderate to biggish hitters from the big house beyond moseyed on down during the morning to chew the fat but apart from the odd punter ,a sole protester waving a flag and a bag of onions sitting on the flowerbed, that was it. Coup coverages just ain’t what they used to be. .
