ABC bias

ABC at it again!

ABC Breakfast Show host, Ross Solly, gives Property Council of Australia 20 minutes-plus free advertising at tax-payer expense to market industry hobby-horse.

Since when did our taxes go to fund the ABC as a national real-estate agent or an arm of the PCA?

Right wing extremist ABC journalists

Of course both Pru Goward and Maxine McKew were right when they stated that journalists should not show their own bias in interviews. However this was not practised in Goward's own carreer in which she blatantly abused her own role as a journalist to promote the political career of John Howard and her own extreme economic 'rationalist' views. Does anyone remember her saturation coverage, night after night, of every development, not matter how trivial, in the long drawn-out struggle between John Howard and Andrew Peacock for leadership of the Federal Liberal Party back in the 1980's? Her interviews often contained questions loaded with her prejudice against unions and in favour of her neo-liberal economic agenda.

'Left Wing' ABC bias

I don't think so. It is 'left wing' in a sense compared to the other newsmedia, but in absolute terms it sits far to the right of what was once considered the middle ground.
