Their ABC

Comments from this week's Media Watch Dog....

The fact is that the ABC managing director does not run the ABC.  Nobody does.  Rather the ABC is controlled by a number of collectives which preside over the public broadcaster’s key television, radio and online products.  The members of these collectives are invariably on the left and they appoint one another to key positions.  This explains why the ABC remains a Conservative-Free-Zone without a conservative presenter or producer or editor for any of its main outlets.  The contemporary Liberal Party understands the problem – as is evident from the comments of the likes of Senator Eric Abetz during Senate estimates committee meetings on the ABC.  It remains to be seen what, if anything, the Coalition will do if it is elected to office on Saturday.
