Both Channel 7 News and Channel 9 News faced a dilemma tonight. Two political scandals. Which one to run first...
Scandal 1. Communications Director to Barry O'Farrell resigns due to personal misconduct. Do direct impact on the NSW Coalition majority Government
Scandal 2. FWA finally hands down its 1,100 report into the HSU. Thomson is alleged to have misused $100,000+ of members money on lavish holidays, cash withdrawals, prostitutes, etc. Thomson's resignation would bring down the Federal Labor/Greens minority government.
Guess which story ran first?
