Polar Bear Cannibalism: a final word

ABC appears to have finalised our complaints (HERE and HERE) about their story about Polar Bear Cannibalism with this post to the "Upheld Complaints" section of the ABC website posted 8 March 2010. It reads:

ABC News Online, 5 December 2009

Summary published: Monday 08, March 2010

Complaint:  An online reader complained that a story ‘Climate change drives bears to cannibalism, conservationists say’ failed to include reference to an alternative explanation to the bears’ behaviour.

Audience and Consumer Affairs response:  The ABC agreed that the report failed to achieve balance. The report was updated to include the reaction of an Inuit spokesperson to the claims. A complaint handling breach was also recorded as a response was not provided to the complainant within sixty days.
