Sky News Journalist Laughs At Victoria Police Officer’s Shooting

Peter Van Onselen, the anchor for PVO NewsHour on SKY NEWS Live, laughed off the Victoria Police press briefing regarding Moonee Ponds shooting of Constable Ben Ashmole.

During his chat about Bill Shorten and Bronwyn Bishop, the broadcast was interrupted to show the Victoria Police press briefing on the arrest of two men charged with shooting an officer in Moonee Ponds.

The anchor did not seem impressed and laughed it off with “I’m not interested in that to be perfectly honest”.

Van Onselen appeared to make an attempt to apologise, then promptly deleted dozens of his tweets.

True Blue Line will no longer link to or feature any stories from Sky News. Grow up, Peter!
