Chaser’s Royal Wedding coverage


Chaser’s Royal Wedding coverage, originally uploaded by mxccuba.

I’ve managed to be totally oblivious to the Royal Wedding, but have noticed this from the
Chaser:

“For a monarchy to be issuing decrees about how the media should cover
them seems quite out of keeping with modern democratic times… but I
suppose that’s exactly what the monarchy is,” he said.

“It’s traditional for the condemned to appeal to the monarch for a stay of
execution, so that’s what we’re going to do.”

“Unfortunately it’s also traditional for people who appeal for clemency to
be executed.”

The Chaser’s Chris Taylor says it is an “honour” to be taken off air by the
Queen herself.

The Chaser later responded with a light-hearted letter addressed to “the
Australian Head of State”, requesting a “stay of execution for our
television program”.
