This is the most over-rated story of the day. Channel 7 wasted a full 10 minutes or more on their 30 minute morning news on this non-entity. Sad he's dead but let's get over it!

Because Australian media spent a significant amount on time reporting the death of New Zealand's Sir Ed (Edmund Hillary)'s death. Media thinks that they have to have a bigger coverage on Australian actor.

This is definitely a sad story indeed. And I do think it deserved coverage. People like Britney Spears etc - those stories are over rated and dominate way too much of the media's time. But a tragedy like this, of someone who was talented and not on a path of total destruction, then yes, I think this deserves ten mins of a person's time to offer a thought or a prayer. Besides, he JUST died yesterday, I don't know how anyone could find this story to be one everyone needs to 'get over it' already ....
