Today, Australia’s best female tennis player, Ashlee Barty beat the world No 1 tennis player Simone Halep. On the Channel 7 news this significant piece of news was delivered in less than 10 seconds at the end of the Sports news after a lengthy report on the Eagles AFL training and a Brats match up display between
Tomic v Kyrgios. I was very disappointed and saddened to see yet again female sport just an add on at the end without any film or detail. Indeed not only disappointed but super annoyed that in 2019 we are still do not deem female sporting prowess news worthy.
I shall make my protest by no longer watching Channel seven news
