Hang on a second.
The "broadcasting arm" is not owned by Racing NSW nor is it restricted in what it can say.
Are you saying that journalists employed by Fairfax, Sky, AAP, News Ltd, Channel 7, etc. are being told by Peter V'Landys what to write and what not to write?
So, for example, Kerry Stokes has told Bruce Mc that he must not say anything negative about NSW racing?
I think we've been through this before but yes, yes, don't know, yes and probably.
From my own point of view it's disappointing what's happened at Fairfax but with cuts and only a piddling racing coverage these days you can't blame them taking a gig at Sky.
There does seem to be plenty of work for tipsters there.
Finally as we are off topic I did take note of P V'Landys comment when the Aquanita scandal broke.
He described the Vic stewards as courageous for exposing the scale of the cheating.
If Peter thinks stewards have to be brave to do their jobs it might explain why all racing villains at the moment are in Victoria, Queensland and Adelaide
