Channel Seven's 'Today Tonight' Race is an issue that interests as well. is now divided by race. Multicultural Australia the Australian Bureau of Statistics Immigration figures from Europe and New Zealand combined. show that Asia has now overtaken Yes, but not by much. Between July and December last year, from Asia, 27,600 people arrived here and Oceania eclipsing the number from Europe the UK and New Zealand, which includes Australians came from. where traditionally most new than non-Asians Australia welcomed 275 more Asians eclipsing European migration? and that's Asian immigration was about 0.5%. The gap between the two groups Then there was this - traditional Anglo-centric settlers. And they now outnumber our new the United States, South Africa But what about the thousands from 'Today Tonight's comparison and Zimbabwe not included in to those with European faces? that tip the balance back with what we look like. The story was really concerned from an expert demographer - So Bryan Seymour ran this coming from regional areas And it's often commented by people

Still, Seymour's interrogation as racist, Now, before you condemn us consider Amanda has lived in Australia for three years, Minnie for two years. Should they know any of this stuff, or does it really not matter? Do you know Waltzing Matilda? Waltzing Matilda. I heard of the name but just can't remember. Looks like Amanda and Minnie failed 'Today Tonight's test. But both were shocked when they saw Bryan Seymour's story on air. Minnie Feng told us she got some of the answers to Seymour's prove you're an Aussie test correct. She knew that Uluru was in Central Australia. And when asked if she knew of Australian movies and film personalities, Minnie says she mentioned Nicole Kidman, Mel Gibson and 'Happy Feet'.

Bryan Seymour agrees the women gave those answers and another one.

But didn't 'Today Tonight' find it absurd that a question designed to show if the women were Australian enough - which they answered correctly - couldn't air because many in their audience wouldn't know the answer. Maybe the reporter didn't mean to offend. But he did. As another of the church members Bryan Seymour interviewed told us - Another journalist striking a blow for Australia-Asian relations is Neil Baird. He's the editor of 'Ausmarine', a commercial marine trade magazine with a monthly circulation of 4,000. The magazine has been fiercely critical of Japanese over-fishing of bluefin tuna. It's a subject which arouses a lot of passion. But after publishing an article from a contributor, condemning Japan's tuna poaching, 'Ausmarine's editor went one step too far. The minister killed himself only hours before he was due to face parliamentary questioning over embezzlement claims. Nowhere was it reported that Matsuoka's death was related to the tuna poaching scandal as Neil Baird seemed to suggest. But is Neil Baird remorseful, having passed such insensitive comments? and for a final dance on Mr Matsuoka's grave, Neil Baird added. Perhaps he should've kept his personal views to himself. On ABC local radio in Brisbane, morning presenter Madonna King was keeping her personal relationship with the 'Courier Mail' to herself. And she most certainly shouldn't have.

It was put firmly on the agenda by businessman David Kemp, who according to the 'Courier Mail' - Another daily metropolitan paper would be great news for Brisbane currently served by two News Limited papers - the 'Courier Mail' and the 'Australian'. And Madonna King was genuinely interested in the idea, even though, as well as being an ABC radio presenter, she's also a regular columnist for the 'Courier Mail'. Not that she declared that. The interview with David Kemp was long, probing and fair. Just what you'd hope for on the ABC. Pity then, when Madonna King told her listeners she'd sought comment from the 'Courier Mail', she didn't tell them the paper's editor is, in fact her husband. In that email, David Kemp praised the 'Courier Mail' for its unbiased coverage of one political story, something editor David Fagan knew would undermine Kemp's criticism of his paper. Madonna King hasn't, in the past, shied away from declaring her relationship with the 'Courier Mail's editor. So it's odd that on this occasion she didn't remind her audience of it. Of course, she's her own person. But her audience would've been better able to judge her coverage of the story if they'd known she was married to the editor of the paper under threat from proposed competition. ABC management agrees. In a city where the 'Courier Mail' dominates, and the wife of the paper's editor sits in the influential morning chair on ABC radio, it's critical that all Madonna King's references to her husband's paper include a disclosure. Finally tonight - to the north pole, where two Russian submarines descended to the ocean floor to plant a flag and make a remarkable land grab. Russia says an undersea ridge provides a connection to its territory. The US and Canada have dismissed the flag ceremony as a stunt. Were any of those images from the ocean floor familiar? They were to one 13-year-old school boy in Finland who had a nagging sense that he'd seen them before.

And he had and it's likely you have too. This shot is from the opening sequence blockbusters ever made - of one of the biggest James Cameron's 'Titanic'. into news coverage So who's responsible for turning it for the arctic shelf? of Russia's audacious grab network Rossiya.
