Schapelle Corby Express

Here it comes, the Schapelle Corby express train.

It will be fascinating to watch how the media handles it.

In the days leading up to and including her release from a Bali jail where she served 12 years for drug smuggling, most media has been following the story, often leading news bulletins with details.

To publish or not to publish remains the question.

Already social media and feedback is full of people complaining

  • why do we have to put up with this
  • why does a convicted drug smuggler …
  • why why why

Her sister Mercedes has been shopping around “exclusive” rights to the Schapelle Corby story.  One of the tv networks is bound to jump on board.  Odds are, we’ll all watch it when it does.

As to the daily procession of updates, announcements, breaking news, it has become the case that divides Australia.

Google news was releasing a new story every 8 minutes on the day she arrived back in Australia.

It looks like we are going to have to put up with the Schapelle Corby express train.
