    Unhappy The ABC story on Tassie Racing has been released

    PeterProfit writes that all harness racing fans need to tune into the 7.30 Report on the ABC tonight

    Even I will watch the turgid 7:30 report as I once loved Tassie trots but now recognise it as cancerous to the entire industry.

    True to form, the "nuffin ta see here" defence is out before the 7:30 Report.

    Nothing on 7.30 report tonight

    Unfortunately The Mercury is behind a paywall. (How can every newspaper think we can afford to subscribe to them all - there has to be some collective deal)

    You can see the following without paying

    Well, that's a half-hour of my life I'll never get back. Nothing whatsoever about Tas trots, just Sarah Henderson's excellent impersonation of a bullying headmistress.

    Oh dear, it wasn't an impersonation.

    Yes, the way she framed her questions (attacks) to the Russian ambassador were so unprofessional

    I'm not about to defend nor convict anyone, but I will say the ABC has carefully edited the story to the point I think it lacks credibility.
