I’ve heard some irresponsible broadcasting, but this morning’s rubbish during Channel Seven’s telecast of the Melbounre Cup was the worst.
Commentators, including Bruce McAvaney, were encouraging children to bet on the Cup.
Thanks, Bruce and Co., for helping to contribute to one of the country’s most insidious addictions.
I’m all for a punt on the big day. But encouraging children? They even had the hide to interview two seven-year-olds about their tips.
