Channel 7 News / beach day out news coverage

1 Australia

I was extremely disappointed in the news coverage of the Beach Day Out celebrations aired on the evening of the event, namely the 14th September 2018. Presenter Rob Brough used the words "mentally and physically disabled" when making reference to the targeted participants of the event. This was followed by a voiceover presenter again using the word "disabled" inappropriately. I implore Channel 7 to explore the Australian Disability Etiquette standards before airing such politically incorrect and inappropriate language on a forum where they have an opportunity and a duty to set an example for the community.
