AT least two networks have turned down an offer of a special prime ministerial broadcast for an address to the nation on her proposed carbon tax.
So far, Nine and Seven have declined to provide airtime for the broadcast, and it's unclear whether the Ten Network would or not, The Australian reports. Sunday night's primetime programming on the commercial networks includes the Dancing With The Stars grand final, MasterChef, 60 Minutes and The Mentalist.
