Our ABC besmirched: Accusations of bias in Q&A Twitter feed

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, March 29, 2011,
Fellow travellers, one of the most appalling trends in mainstream media discourse lately is this increasing perception that the ABC is somehow biased to the left. This is just completely false, and only a revolting right-wing reactionary would say such a thing.

The vile accusers making this offensive claim seem to be particularly fixated on Q&A for some reason. They say the show is guilty of bias in several ways, including the selection of guests. But haven't you noticed, they actually have c...

Brilliant Gretel Killeen on Q&A brings hope to the ABC

Appalling. Just appalling.

Fellow travellers, I'm sure that you are all sick and tired of climate change deniers insisting that those determined to stop the impending global catastrophe actually want to take humanity "back to the Stone Age" and "make us all cavemen". This is a contemptible and utterly false accusation! (But even if it weren't, what would be wrong with living more in harmony with nature, like our distant ancestors did?)
