X FACTOR - KERRY STOKES

We've got Redfoo in town, half of LMFAO Every Day I'm Shuffling (like Scooters Jumping all over the world - Every day-Every Hour motif that came out long before LMFAO ) for the clown judge on the local ch7 version of UK's X Factor.

Now ch7 have been snooping around this competition thread to sus out the structure, because it appears they have a shuffle element to the comps or a new show in the works with a cashed up Redfoo looking for a TV career, and are probably ripping off parts of the Korean/Japanese version of Shuffle audition too (Get your lawyers ready Korea/Japan)

Anyhow, we expect this from loosers and thieves who can't come up with their own ideas, you need Talent for ideas.

So we've only posted the barest introduction to the Global Shuffle battles, and so now they have no clue on how to actually judge shufflers. Redfoo, doesn't dance and has shown he can't be bothered learning judging by his clown show promo on X Factor - can't even come up with a new wardrobe for him ! He'll say it's just his style, we say he's a has been, or he'd simply be out performing live concert shows like that other shuffler, Justin Beiber, who still has a long career ahead of him ...again it's called Talent ch7, take note.

So ch7 or whoever the production company staff are, let's see you get out of this one, with a half baked half finished shuffle contest, while you wait for us to publish the rest of the IP. hahaha, geez you guys are dumb.

We're going to hold off the rest of the structure until X Factor and Redfoo have gone to air. We're running the Global Shuffle Battles for years, both online and on-the-ground, plenty of time...for us.

X Factor are filming auditions now so it'll be on air in weeks in the new rating season, for them to try and romp home in the end of year ratings just like son of murdoch did with his wifes vanity show Every Body Dance Now, which flopped big time.

But X Factor is a tired and stale talent show format and all the shiny surfaces on the dance floor and host desks do NOT make it a good show, it's just expensive glitz, and stale cheese.

It's also an admission that ch7 are desperate enough to try it again, because their Dancing With The Stars show flopped and all they have is cricket or local Australian football. woo hoo, sounding like Rupert and ch10, we've got ... er..um.

At least ch7 got 7TWO (Dads Army reruns) and 7Mate Family Guy/American dad right - all old reruns, but still fun and saves me getting the dvd box set out to watch them. How many times did Rupert/FOX TRY to cancel FamilyGuy/American Dad again ?

Got it right that is until they turned 7TWO into live gambling with racing in childrens veiwing times, may you rot in hell with Rupert the whipped and the SBS pigs, then some ! No Global Shuffle for ch7 executives who can join the scum queue of life. Kerry Stokes should be ashamed and damned !

Kerry Stokes: a profile of rags to riches
ABC. The World Today Archive - Friday, 2 June, 2000
Reporter: Steve Sailah

http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/stories/s134656.htm

STEVE SAILAH: So can you be as tough as you like maybe if you are honest?

KERRY STOKES: No question. If you have a difficult message to deliver in any circumstance, it's always best to do it first up-front, and probably be a bit harder than you have to be because it's always easier to be nicer afterwards.

STEVE SAILAH: Because your life's been pretty tough, hasn't it? Other heads of media companies, like the Packers and the Murdochs, they rarely speak out on social issues. On the other hand, you're far more independent and vocal. Why do you think you speak out when other influential media leaders remain silent a lot of the time?

KERRY STOKES: Maybe they've never been hungry. When you've actually lived and worked in this country, or in any country - but my experience is here - you gain a lot more respect for the people you're involved with when you've been through hard times with them. It's no different to any other personal relationship. If you have a difficult marriage, it's the hard times that make it better. If you have a relationship, it's the hard times that actually make it better, and that goes for life as well.

STEVE SAILAH: You were once asked, I think, whether it might have been better had the young James Packer and the young Lachlan Murdoch started out from a less privileged position, and you were reported as saying, "I wouldn't wish that on anyone." Is that why you said that, because in a sense you started from scratch, you didn't have at all a privileged position in the same way perhaps they do.

KERRY STOKES: I don't wish hardship on anybody. My background was one of being very difficult, very hard, and they were subject to the times I lived in. I wouldn't wish that on anybody. We've actually as a nation all worked really hard so the next generation don't have to bear the same degrees of difficulty that we had to go through.

I had lots of different occupations and obviously lots of different experiences. Sometimes - I had some time on the street, and sometimes work was very difficult. Australia, in that period of time, wasn't a place where you could actually easily go and get a job, it was difficult, and we went where there was work available. And we have a slightly different ethos today, people expect jobs to be where they're available.

STEVE SAILAH: What do you think of the fact that there seems to have been a shift in corporate policy recently, from the old adage maybe, the customer knows best, to the shareholder comes first. Do you think that's true, and what does it say about where business ethics are heading?

KERRY STOKES: If there has been a shift, I wouldn't agree with it. The most important adage and the only adage is, the customer comes first, whatever the business, the customer comes first.

STEVE SAILAH: The banks might not agree with you there - excuse me for interrupting.

KERRY STOKES: Well, if they don't, then they end up losing, because any business that doesn't put the customer first, doesn't have a business, and without a business, there is no shall return and there is nothing for banks or anybody else. The most important singular purpose of a company is to serve its customers, wherever their base may be.

STEVE SAILAH: Do you think there is - that money, in fact, has become much more of an important commodity to individual Australians than it may have been in the past?

KERRY STOKES: No, I think money's always been pretty important to every individual in Australia in one form or another. But I don't think that we're any more avarice. We've recently been through a set of circumstances where people saw an opportunity to make money for little effort. Those situations always pass. The only way of making money is for effort. The only time I've ever lost money is when I've purposely said, "I'm doing this to make money." And I've actually on three occasions lost significant sums. I have made wealth when I've actually made a contribution to something, when I've done something I thought I could do better than somebody else or have done something better than somebody else does it.

At the end of the day, anybody who thinks there's a reward for nothing, ends up losing.

STEVE SAILAH: Kerry Stokes hates the word "vision," sees it as belonging to saints. But six years ago Mr Stokes was prophetic in his Boyer lectures on the information super-highway, a series entitled, "Advance Australia Where." Amongst other things, Mr Stokes warned of the wastage in the push to cable up Australian homes to pay TV, something he said then could make Australia appear a suburb of Los Angeles.

KERRY STOKES: It's a matter that worries me and obviously any thinking Australian. Yes, we do have the problem as we - and I think I used the phrase, "57 channels and nothing on."

-----------

That was 13 years ago, and Kerry has learnt ... just what ? More football, more cricket, more Redfoo, an actual child of the LA suburbs ? Prophetic indeed. The self-fullfilling kind of prophecy.

Kerry had a good start in 1994 ahead of the pack looking at the 'information super-highway', the internet to you and me. But what's he done with it ? Bugger all, and now he's trying to play catch up, hehe. Not a chance, way past it, and he has shown no interest in taking advantage of it, just more live sport and cheap UK/USA reruns. No clue what the internet can do to his failing business (destroy it), no idea how to lift himself out of his mess, his failures, his lazyness, just gimme the money and go away.

So good luck TV Land, I know you have your deadlines and you don't have the whole story, so, you know who to call gs@gloabshuffle.com

------------
UPDATE 9 June 2013.
Just been watching a bit of ch7's sunrise (like the USA morning shows but more crass) and strangely and obviously scripted, Dancing With the Stars came up in conversation, geez the day after I bagged it - some timing eh Wink, and so they played a bunch of old clips of the show.

Each commented on their part and the show, and their embarassment to see it again and said they wanted to vomit, just like the veiwers who turned off ch7 and didn't go back.

One male presenter giggled with the female presenters that out of all the people on Sunrise and reporters, he was the only one who hadn't appeared on Dancing With the Stars.

Yeah well that was the main problem with the show, there were no stars, just anyone on staff at 7, and the dancing and costumes were just casino kitsch and just plain awful. It looked like a football show with footballers who have never danced, trying to dance, prime time big budget TV on ch7.

I guess that gets the ch7 execs all hot and sweaty, but I think it's time for them to get online ... sorry onto the Information Super Highway and see what the rest of the world likes - it's not ch7, There's other stuff far more entertaining and relevant to the 21century, you know, today, not 20 years ago when your brains stopped listening to the audience.

Just how worried are the media giants in Australia ? sh*t scared.

''Industries don't last forever at least in the form they were at their peak.''

Media rivals facing a brave new world

June 8, 2013 by Elizabeth Knight
Business columnist The Age

The chief executives of Australia's rival print media organisations, News Corp and Fairfax, were doing battle to sell their survival plans to local investors.

News Corp's new chief executive, Robert Thomson, was holding court at Sydney's Four Seasons Hotel on Wednesday, flanked by chairman Rupert Murdoch. Fairfax CEO Greg Hywood chose the historic Mint on the other side of town, to face the same gathering of suits on Thursday.

It's a tough crowd more attuned to reading the numbers than partnering management in the belief of longer-term aspirational objectives.

News Corp CEO Robert Thomsom remains upbeat.

Hywood came out of the dressing rooms and went straight into a tackle: ''We are the media company that delivers detail and transparency. The media company that fully understands the complexity of the issues we are facing.''

Sitting atop a traditional print media company is a hard gig in an industry that is arguably more challenged than any other with core advertising and audience rapidly migrating to the lower-margin highly competitive digital arena.

The business models that sustained healthy returns 10 years ago are under such intense threat that the response has to be one of revolution rather than evolution.

As Hywood noted in a speech to the International News Media Association a month ago, ''business models don't last forever''.

''Industries don't last forever at least in the form they were at their peak.''

> Yeah well I'm sure the investors know, it's one thing to "fully understand(s) the complexity of the issues we are facing.'' It's quite another to have the talent to do anything about it. To date there's no talent, just desperation.

Hardly the best grounds for long term or even short term investments, in the Brave New World of digital culture

Ch7 GOING DOWN - 100 JOBS GO. 3rd Downsize in 6 Years

Seven West cuts jobs
June 12, 2013
Peter Cai

More than 100 jobs will be cut at Kerry Stokes' Seven West Media as it undertakes a major restructure amid a downturn in the advertising market.

Forty positions, including at least 33 journalists, will be axed at The West Australian, the company's daily newspaper in Perth, through voluntary or forced redundancies.

Seven West, which owns the Seven Network, announced the changes to staff on Tuesday, three weeks after Tim Worner was appointed chief executive.

''The media industry and the economic environment have presented many challenges for WA Newspapers over the past few years, making it imperative that we review our operations and effectively manage our costs to ensure the long term stability, viability and growth of the business,'' Seven West said in a statement.

The company told analysts in February that it targeted costs reductions of 5 per cent in its newspapers and magazines business.

This is the company's third round of redundancies in the past six years.

Staff were told in an email that the company would carry out forced redundancies if there were not enough volunteers.

UPDATE 22 August 2013: SEVEN WEST POSTS $70 Million LOSS

SEVEN West Media made a loss of $70 million last financial year due to writedowns of its publishing assets.
The media company's 2012/13 result is down from a $227 million profit the previous year.

It was affected by a more than $300 million of before-tax impairment charges, mostly due to writedowns relating to its magazine assets. Net profit excluding the significant items was $225 million, down slightly from $227 million previously.
The company owns the Seven Network, West Australian newspaper group and Pacific Magazines.Seven West Media chief executive Tim Worner said the company had performed well in a difficult environment. "Our television business continues to lead in both audience share and advertising revenue," he said today. "Our publishing businesses are out-performing their peers in what is a challenging market, delivering great content, managing their costs and building the framework for their moves into new forms of content delivery and revenue streams."

He said the company was focused on keeping costs down and strengthening its financial performance over the next 12 months. Seven West's final dividend of six cents, fully-franked, is the same as last year's.
