Seven demands $130,000 from charity
Sunrise cherry-pick their stories, choosing those that suit their agenda, or which pay them. Ignoring those which, though news worthy, don't support their agenda.
THE Seven Network has generated another behind-the-scenes scandal after it demanded $130,000 from a cancer charity for the production costs of a reporter from its Sunrise program to cover a 21-day celebrity fundraising walk in China.
Next Monday Olivia Newton-John and a host of local and international stars begin a 228km trek over 21 days to raise funds for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre Appeal.
However the network has pulled the pin on a deal to send Sunrise reporter Monique Wright to cover the event after its demand was rejected.
