Commonwealth Games: Channel Nine remain banned until after opening ceremony

Channel Nine has been heavily criticised by officials and banned from the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games until after Wednesday night's opening ceremony, because they breached strict broadcasting conditions.

The network's media accreditation was suspended after they aired behind-the scenes footage of Saturday night's confidential opening ceremony dress rehearsal.

The Commonwealth Games opens on Wednesday night, with organisers anticipating a global audience of 1.5 billion people.

Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Corporation chief executive Mark Peters said the suspension would be reviewed on Wednesday and organisers would decide whether to lift the ban on Thursday.

He said 16,000 volunteers and spectators had respected the media blackout at the rehearsal, but Channel Nine chose to air footage shot on a mobile phone on their 6:00pm news on Sunday night.

"That's not what dignity's about, that's not what trust is about, and it broke our news access rules," he said.

"There has to be a consequence, the same way there's a consequence for athletes and officials — there needs to be accountability in the media."

Mr Peters said the ban had received "absolute support" from volunteers.

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said organisers were deeply disappointed in Nine's decision to broadcast the material.

"The impact of this investment only works if we all work together," he said.

"When people are given privilege to come in and watch an event and they break the rules with that, that's not high performance — that's infringing on the spirit which these Games really represent."

A Nine spokeswoman said the network had not been formally notified about when or if the ban would be lifted.

In a statement, Channel Nine said it made an "error" in its Sunday night news broadcast.

"We are in discussions with the Commonwealth Games authorities to restore our accreditation and hope to have the situation resolved ASAP," it read.

GOLDOC Chairman Peter Beattie said Channel Nine had breached their trust.

"My only concern was one for the audience and viewers," he said.

"We wanted to make sure that we all kept the secret ... [because] we don't want the audience to be disappointed, and we don't want our international audience to be disappointed.

"The Commonwealth Games are very much judged by the opening ceremony, because if it gets off to a good start it sets the tone for the games."

Mr Beattie said suspending the network's access was merely an appropriate measure to "save the surprise".

"We're in correspondence with Nine, we'll resolve this in a sensible way and move on — but we will move to protect the opening ceremony where appropriate," he said.

Apart from the fact that if they had the rights and someone else did it to them they'd cry blue murder, it highlights just how big business, and bid media in general, thinks it can get away with ignoring any rules these days.
I say they should be barred from the games for the whole event

Yet for years they broadcast ACA, and receive no penalty.

Doesn't make any sense.

Well....he has a judgement call to make. He wants the Games to attract maximum publicity and Ch 9 is part of that....and yes, if they breached a deal, he had to sanction them. It seems Ch 7 has the rights, and if he allows Ch 9 to stomp on that, 'he' is in deep legal shit.

Well this is a bit of a mess.!

Thanks to Channel Nine. I don't watch Nine/ very much sick of their lack of ethical behaviour. I find their 'focus' untenable. look at that child-kidnapping business.!! MY GOD. The fact that Channel Nine seemed to weasel out of that made me very angry. No respect..
And ACA? it is a dirty word.
