During a discussion about the 2007 Federal Election, the presenter commented that Gough Whitlam had “brought the troops home from Vietnam in 1972”. A listener wrote to complain that it had been the Gorton and McMahon governments which had brought Australian troops home from Vietnam.
The ABC agreed that a factual error had been made. An acknowledgement was sent to the listener.
