Curious revelations in the last day or so suggesting gems of information come in threes.
Deborah Cameron - a fencing sportswoman at university? You can just imagine the dangerous conceptual tools in her radio work today as a metaphor for the epee dueling sword of her youth.
Leigh Sales reveals on the Glover arvo show that her father is a Vietnam War Veteran. The implications for her editorial approach to the David Hicks Case just go on and on and on.
Tracey Holmes reports on the political story of the Canberra torch relay on 702 morning show earlier today even though she is mainly a sports reporter. A specialist Olympic sports reporter with history in Hong Kong. In the last week her dogmatic support for Big Sport was quite blatant. She presents like a talented knowledgeable broadcaster but she definitely had her own angle. Not much Free Tibet or human rights considerations likely to arise in her coverage.
