We'd like our loyal readers to give us their views on the media coverage of the reactions / panel discussions of the 2008/2009 budget presentation.
We made a few observations, one of which was that CNMG's set with the very high chair and desk for moderator Sandra Maharaj made her look like a judge presiding over the trial of guests Thackwray Driver, Hazel Brown and the gentleman from the CWU.

Then at 7pm, Samantha John of TV6 told us the Finance Minister was supposed to be interviewed live during the news but they received a telephone call that she was tired and would not be able to make it. Well instead of leaving it there and moving on to the next item, Miss John said "It is a pity."
Did we detect a slight sarcastic tone? Was that line scripted?

Tell us what you thought of the coverage.
