One of the nation’s leading sources of left-wing bias is said to be teetering on the brink of collapse this evening as investors scatter and advertiser confidence reaches all-time lows.
Channel 10’s reputation for being Australia’s youth-orientated commercial television station is being blamed for the network’s disastrous $232 million loss in the six months to February as current trends have seen young people tuning out in droves.
“Well, it seems like Millennials don’t watch television anymore,” said one senior Ten executive.
“We might need to restructure, you know. Get some shock jocks in here. But yeah, we’ve really shit the bed on this occasion. We don’t really know why young people don’t watch television, either. I thought the youth loved The Project and cooking shows. I mean, fuck me dead? What more could you want?”
The Advocate reached out to a number of Ten personalities after receiving their unsolicited resumes, but none are willing to comment further on the financial situation the network is facing.
More to come.
