One-Tel: Aftermath Is A Bit Rich

* RUPERT MURDOCH'S News Limited stands to lose $575 million from its investment into the now insolvent One.Tel, and the agenda-setting Daily Telegraph edited by CAMPBELL REID, is wasting no time in presenting a campaign against One.Tel co-founder JODEE RICH, and to a lesser degree BRAD KEELING. Reporters ANNA COCK and BRUCE McDOUGALL'S coverage of RICH is liberally sprinkled with references to his Vaucluse 'mansion', a $14 million bonus shared with his co-founder, and his Cranbrook School CV. Journalist STAVRO SOFIOS covers the bidding by Federal Treasurer PETER COSTELLO and NSW Premier BOB CARR for the founders to hand back their $7 million bonuses. WARREN'S cartoon has RICH looking like death. In Melbourne, SARAH BLAKE'S Sunday Herald Sun report even suggests 'Jail Threat To One.Tel Pair'.

* The national News Limited coverage of One.Tel co-directors JAMES PACKER and LACHLAN MURDOCH is somewhat more sympathetic. They claim they were 'profoundly misled' over the true financial state of the company. Interestingly, The Australian newspaper was able to 'obtain' briefing papers for a One.Tel January 25 board meeting: GEOFF ELIOTT, MARK WESTFIELD and DENNIS SHANAHAN reported that One.Tel was predicted to post a $41 million profit for a six-month period. 'MR RICH told investors seven days later that the figure would be $10 million.'

Giant Loss for ABC, Shier

* GAIL JARVIS resigned on Friday as ABC Director of Television, after just nine months in the job. PILITA CLARK of The Sydney Morning Herald described JARVIS as 'the most prominent of the hand-picked executives' of ABC chief JONATHAN SHIER. JARVIS is the third such senior exec. to leave SHIER in recent months. Also to leave were Head of Program Development, GUY DUNSTAN, and Head of Drama, TONY VIRGO. 'She has also struggled to explain a dramatic fall in ABC ratings, down 20 per cent this year,' says CLARK. AMANDA MEADE, in The Weekend Australian, predicts SANDRA LEVY 'is almost certain to take over from MS JARVIS'.

AJN Distances From Gutnick

* JOSEPH GUTNICK, rabbi, mining company entrepreneur and recent Melbourne Football Club President, has been receiving plenty of media coverage (particularly in Victoria). A public perception is that any criticism of his tactics is always labelled by GUTNICK as 'anti-semetic'. DEBORAH STONE'S Melbourne Edition of The Australian Jewish News did its best to walk on egg-shells this week to distance itself from GUTNICK playing the race card so often. It tried - oh so hard - to veil its thoughts by also linking GUTNICK with AMA president KERRYN PHELPS.

* STONE'S Editorial - 'Jews In The Spotlight' - said: 'DR PHELPS and MR GUTNICK have their admirers and their detractors inside and outside the Jewish community. What we must ask of the non-Jewish community is they remember these individuals are just that. They are not representatives of this community, just individuals who happen to belong to it. Danger comes only when we generalise. If the non-Jewish world learnt anything about our community from last weekend's papers it should be how little it is possible to stereotype a community. The lesbian doctor-cum-reform convert and Orthodox-rabbi-cum-businessman-cum-football president are ambassadors only of a Jewish community that is vital and varied.'

Hinch Rejects Bankruptcy Jibe

* DERRYN HINCH, 3AK morning host, rejected a jibe by Footy Show compere EDDIE McGUIRE that he (HINCH) was a bankrupt. He said he had paid 'every dollar in the dollar'. HINCH was appearing on TV as a back-up to self-deposed Melbourne Football Club President JOE GUTNICK. HINCH says he had decided not to campaign to become a Director of the Melbourne Football Club, because of a perception of conflict of interest with his job as a journalist. He exampled the perception of conflict between McGUIRE, who also holds the Presidency of Collingwood Football Club, in addition to media business interests. HINCH says he had been defamed last week on rival station 3AW, after declaring a possible interest in running for the MFC Board. That station questioned potential directors passing probity checks, as required by any company linked with gaming machines.

3AK Links With 2GB: Report

* JOHN JOST, 3AK CEO, has negotiated its news link with Sydney radio station 2GB, according to ROWENA STRETTON in The Melbourne Weekly Magazine. The notion of 3AK broadcasting 'Macquarie National News', which for so long was the signature of rival 3AW, amuses. DENIS O'KANE, 3AK new News Director, says rather than start as a premiership 'Essendon' news team, AK will commence as a 'St Kilda'.

Queensland Quips

* BOB GORDON, Editor-in-Chief of the Gold Coast Bulletin, seems to be enjoying a good old-fashioned tabloid punch-up with Queensland Premier PETER BEATTIE. The State's top politician penned a letter to Friday's paper, telling GORDON to give local politicians 'a fair go' on the daylight saving issue. To avoid faded curtains, BEATTIE promised Queensland voters that daylight saving would not be on his agenda, even though Gold Coast Labor MPs want to be in synch. with the rest of the nation. GORDON reproduced the letter in both Friday and Weekend editions, along with his vigorous reply.

* BRIAN BLACKWELL, a Sunday Observer colleague from another life (1973-77), became one of this week's Media Flash Confidential new subscribers: 'I've been Editor of Practical Punting Monthly since 1985 (yes, a small independent mag can make it!) and also edit the highly successful website, the Practical Punting Daily Club. Love your newsletter, keep up the good work. When you do another edition of Long Shots, bloody well make sure I get mentioned! Cheers mate.'

Editor's E-Mail

* BRENDAN CALIGARI, Assistant Advertising Manager of The Geelong Advertiser, writes: '

'Regarding the Sunday Advertiser, I feel that it is important that you should be informed that we did make a "major announcement" about the closure on page three of the Wednesday edition of the Geelong Advertiser, the day after the official announcement was made to staff. To re-print the information again in the Saturday edition would have been pointless, as the news was three days old by that stage. * MEDIA FLASH replies: 'As you are well aware, The Geelong Advertiser has many weekend-only readers. Your circulation figures clearly show this. An announcement in Saturday's edition, I feel, would have been of service to us as readers, rather than 'pointless'. Nonetheless, keep up the good efforts on the other six days. I particularly like GT.' Stix And Stones

* STEVE STICKNEY, Editor at The Manly Daily, looks at a whippet, a whippersnapper, a whipper and a whopper.

* 'The vows should be written like a dog's licence that has to be renewed every year'' - rockin' ROD STEWART makes a mongrel of a comparison while slagging of the 'til-death-do-us-part bit of traditional marriage ceremonies. UK wire service.

As I have limited access to professional venues, he can meet me at 4.02 after school on Friday' - seven-year-old XANNAN 'XAN THE MAN' SHIRLEY issues a challenge to boxer TONY MUNDINE to stop using the nickname `The Man' or face the consequences.

* KATE McCLYMONT, Editor of 'Sauce' in The Sydney Morning Herald, notes the use of a hidden camera by A Current Affair in the Mosman mansion of RITA WILLIAMS, wife of HIH founder RAY WILLIAMS: 'Obviously a devotee of this very practice is ACA host MIKE MUNRO, whose Mosman abode is in the name of his wife LEA.'


* JOHN BLACKMAN, and his 'DICKY KNEE' character, star in the latest Daewoo TV commercials released this week. BLACKMAN counts his savings on the $13,999 vehicle, and is called a 'Merchant Banker' by the head-on-a-stick. Not as much a 'banker' as the tragic radio station who let go his services earlier this year, we think.
