I totally agree. It sounds like something you'd hear on the Current Affair show down here in Australia.. Sometimes you just don't know how it made the news.

But congrats to her, though she'll never hear this.


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

True that. They turn anything into a news story these days.

Excuse me but I am offended by this. Today Tonight and ACA are outstanding news programs. If I wanted to know about the 'Carbon Tax' or 'Asylum Seekers' I would watch that rubbish on the ABC. TT and ACA stick up for true aussie battlers. They bring us important stories, like weight loss creams, wonder bras and neighbours from hell. God forbid I ever go shopping again before I find out where I can get the best value on frozen pizza.

So PLEASE, think before you speak. I don't want you trashing the last true example of dignified journalism in the country (other than The Bolt Report- giving us a balanced and unbiased commentary, unlike those scum bag lefties on SBS and ABC).


To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget

ahahaha ahh Today Tonight, what amusement it provides! Sometimes I'm forced to watch it because it comes on when I'm at the gym...I literally laugh at loud at the rubbish they report about :P
...sorry to diverge from the original post...good for that girl this might give hope to lots of people who have been abused.

Oh-my-god, your ignorance is amazing, almost laughable. All of those endorsements on ACA and TT have gone to your head, missy! Have a little bit more "neighbours from hell" fights over fences; that'll bring you down to earth.

But srsly, loving the sarcasm. Spoken like a true hero and you made my night.

Plus, I love how you make reference to the Bolt Report. Not sure how it is in other states, but I love his editorials/columns in the Herald Sun simply because I get a laugh out of it.

Bolt is the representatitive of Fox News here in Australia, or at least he should be.


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

Why it made the news shouldn't even matter.

This woman overcame serious issues and is making a new life for herself and her child! More power to her, and I am very happy that she has FINALLY found happiness with someone!

News doesn't always have to be a bombing. This was a incest case that made national news, so it's showing closure in the story that the victim is better, and everything is great.
I think it's wonderful. Finally some good news.

I'm glad this made the news. For once its not death, or sadness. Its actually a happy success story. Good for her.
