Stunt journalism, cheap tacky antics seem to surround Duncan Garner with his own overdramatised effort of a while ago promoting himself about trying synthetic cannabis on air  
If you want your stories to be taken seriously then present them seriously, not use tacky tabloid tactics.

The controversy surrounding current affairs show Story's most high-profile investigation yet has failed to help pull up the ratings.

Reporter Heather du Plessis-Allan bought a .22 rifle over the internet for an item on the TV3 show, which aired on Wednesday night.

In a statement released before the show, Auckland City police announced they had opened a criminal investigation "following information that a firearm was purchased illegally online".

But the drama does not appear to have enticed viewers, with Wednesday night's episode receiving lower than average ratings

According to figures from TV website throng.co.nz, 164,490 viewers tuned in to watch du Plessis-Allan purchase the rifle.

This was up slightly on the previous night's episode, which saw a live audience of 132,060.

But according to a Stuff analysis of throng.co.nz data, it was below the average of 189,897 viewers per episode achieved during August and September.

It was also well behind its main timeslot competitor, Seven Sharp on TV One which had 466,390 viewers.

On Wednesday night Seven Sharp's main item was a story on the dangers of driveways.

Story, co-hosted by Heather du Plessis-Allan and Duncan Garner, was chosen to replace Campbell Live following a Mediaworks review of the 7pm timeslot.

Its highest rating episode was its debut on August 10, which saw an audience of 276,270.

Ratings don't count those that watched it online or delayed viewing including recording it. Relying on
ratings to gauge public interest is as outdated as the motion picture industry expecting people
to watch all movies at a theater and buy DVD's from a local video shop.

She should be prosecuted and have a criminal conviction. That is no different to stealing a car just to show how easy it is.

Journalists think they are above the law.
