G'Day Fella's,

I totally agree with you Doc.
The abc (thats an acronym for Another Biased Comentary), is so blatant with their reporting, I have problem listening to and watching it.
Every socialist agenda that there is out there floating about, and the abc is there, pushing it to the max!
Nobody would miss it's one sided reporting, so give it the chop, I say.

D'oh!

All those would be earning double the money elsewhere so no it aint gunna happen. Plus the ABC has editorial standards who none of the names youve mentioned would meet, well maybe Steve might met them, the others no way. ;)

that's a scary thought that people in regional areas are being brainwashed by biased ABC . i think the abc needs to be reined in and have new standards set that are impartial and report all the facts. the ABC should be setting a standard . i won't watch a lot of abc shows. their in the same bracket as ten's "the project" . which is one of the most blatantly leftist agenda shows on air . left or right, the media needs a more professional approach and standard and accountability

Just look at how the presenters bagged Clive Palmer on election night even though Clive is a bit on the nose he should enjoy the right to be treated as the other parties were I don't know why people are still commenting on the ABC we all know all media outlets are bias in some way shape or form so take it with a grain of salt if it offends you switch it off I do and I sleep well at night

i think country folk in general are clued up to politicians and media BS. a few i've met were wary of me at first due to ignorant "do-gooders" from the city areas they've met in the past as well. one old bloke i got talking to reckons he would welcome vegan protesters onto his property. because of their vegan diet they would be good for the soil and would compost down real quick ;)

The difference is the ABC is funded by us, the taxpayer, which should ensure impartiality. If you don’t like what a newspaper/tv programs slant on things, don’t buy/watch it. You only have to have a look at what side of politics think the ABC is fair to work out which way they lean.....

I think...its my opinion only.

But there are more lefty or center people who are quite happy with the ABC on the whole as they don't seem to care about their money being wasted

For as long as I can remember ABC has always been very left and biased in that direction so clearly it's not a great return on investment for taxpayers. Sure ABC cranks out decent programs on occasion but worth taxpayers funding?

Actually I was thinking a little but more....ABC actually has many very good programs. The Kids channels, the after hours comedy channel and stuff that normally you won't see on commercial stations like many BBC shows. Even Australian comedies like The Pizza.

I think we been hating stuff too much lately... time to be happy and enjoy what we have before we loose it

I can't agree with that sentiment. Sure - there's some good things on the ABC, but by law it is required "to ensure that the gathering and presentation by the Corporation of news and information is accurate and impartial according to the recognized standards of objective journalism;"

You're effectively advocating turning a blind eye to the law and not holding people accountable simply because some good is also done.

As for bias - you can be bias but still fair and allow someone who disagrees with you the opportunity to explain themselves in full instead of putting words in their mouth. It's a matter of respecting other people's rights to have a voice and a fair go - even if you disagree with them on the subject.

Ha ha ha. All the commercial media did nothing but knife the ALP up to the election. VERY bias. Sure not against the law but NOT ethical. And counter to there code of practice Im sure.

All my life its been the same. Commercial media in bed with LNP. It would be interesting to see what donations they make to parties.

Of course now the LNP is in power more taxes for the workers and no tax for big business. No wonder they are in bed together.

More taxes... mate from my calculations labour were going after old retirees with a 50 billion cash grab.... aka tax. For the working people the tax breaks are very similar.

Ohh and labor were going to put 6k small businesses that employ 30k people out of work. And do bring about three bug fat cat bankers

I think you mean they were going to stop giving them gifts. And in any case it was to be grandfathered.

Hmmm...
Its interesting how we all perceive things differently...
I dont watch much commercial tv unless its silly comedy that gives a bit of an escape through having a laugh at ourselves...but the bits-n-pieces of commercial tv i did see during the election campain were definately not knifing the ALP, infact all i heard was how it was going to be a whitewash, & along with that was always an ALP weighted argument towards the country "needing change" from LNP governence.

So i certainly veiwed the election campain differently.

Im sure its like buying a car...before i was considering buying my current car, i could have sworn they werent very popular as i hardly ever noticed them on the road...
Then the 2 models i was choosing between were all i saw stopped at traffic lights.

And while the media are very influential in our society, i dont think they are to blame for the election result...

The reality is, the ALP, who were instrumental in setting our current baby boomers up for a very comfortable retirement, decided to tie a noose around their own necks & convince themselves that taxing these baby boomers--who by the wsy have already payed tax on their wealth--will go unnoticed...as would taking away a good dollup of realestate investors' income, whom happen to be the children of the baby boomers... :crazy:

In my opinion ttuely stupifying things to do, & things that demonstrate how the core values of the ALP from the 50's/60's through to tge 80's have been completely lost in the race for ones need for power.

I used to be an ALP voter, & the reason im not is because they are no longer, as my beloved Scotch grandparents used to say, "lòok after the working man"...

If i were an ALP supporter, id blame the ALP themselves...for the betrayal.
I honestly believe they have fukd their very own people/constituants over...as ive said before, Shorten was doing it with Rudd-Gillard-Rudd, & look where his & Bowens arrogance has landed them.

Bet your bottom dollar the only reason Tanya backed out of the race straight away was to distance herself from the debacle--but rest assured she will rise again before the next election with leadership the only thing in her sights...!!
The man who knows everything, doesnt really know everything...he's just stopped learning...

End of the day, anyone that relies on tv for information is a freaking moron, tv is nothing more than a mundane distraction for the mindless many, yes the abc is bias, yes so are all the others, but what's more retarded is putting faith in people who watch the garbage in the first place, couldn't think of anything more pathetic to do with your time, especially in the age of high speed internet and paid sub viewing like myoutdoortv
