4 Corners tonight "Two Days In Hell" & Media Watch has a go at the bushfire reporting

About the bushfires - incredible footage of the fires and how fast they moved.

Worth a watch, if you're interested.

There are interviews with people who were victims of the fires and also people who were involved in rescuing people as well as CFA firefighters, Salvos, doctors treating victims, a fire behaviour expert (Kevin Tolhurst).

I heard today that the death toll had risen to 189.

Media Watch has a dig at intrusive, inaccurate, sensationalist and contrived reporting. And a shot at anti-green opinion reports - and a huge dig at Miranda Divine for "hate mongering".

Funny how they don't dig at others for "hate mongering" when they do it all the time at the SMH.
