They provide the following response to a query we made regarding missing editorial notes from a number of ABC reports, including one on its ITunes site.
Thank you for your email of 21 June. I apologise for the delay in responding; it took a little longer to sort out iTunes than it should have. The segment on the Radio National website now has a prominent editor’s note and the podcast is no longer available on iTunes.
At this stage, neither Radio nor News propose to do any further broadcasts or stories on the subject. If or when the scientists re-release their research, the story will be reassessed in the normal way taking account of editorial priorities at the time.
Thank you for taking the time to write; your feedback is appreciated.
