Alison, get it right.

I said 34% watch current affairs, all channels. and I used a source.

You are funny though.

So . if 34 % watch it for free what % do you reckon would pay the equivalent of an online newspaper.. Bet essential Media ( run by an ex Gillard staffer) wouldn't ask that question... might not get the right answer without a bit of demographic and locational and employment security adjustments!! Polls run by partisan pollsters is just propaganda.

Keep wit your day job, defending the ABC and Aunty BBC as quality balanced reporting isn't your forte... actually to be fair no one could do that, mate!

Cyclone and Toni,

I really enjoy ABC and SBS shows like Foreign Correspondent, Dateline, and Four Corners, plus all of the documentaries.

Where i would agree with the right wingers is that the ABC discussion shows are very biased. Not sure how you get around this.

TBH, i am not fussed what happens to the ABC, or any other broadcaster or newspaper. If they are good enough, they will survive.

AS for the ABC haters, the ABC will be around for a long time yet in some form, but they can watch SkyNews to be informed.

Sky is doing well with attracting the haters, but good luck with that tactic in the long run.

Chris, you had better check the heritage of most of the things you like from the ABC, "Foreign Correspondent, Dateline, and Four Corners and documentaries". While I despair at the news and opinion bias, I enjoy watching them too, along with Sky, CNN, Fox, Deutse Welle, China TV News, Russia Today and even auntie BBC...

But most of the stuff on the programs you love are actually done by others in other countries with feeble ABC edits and inserts... Come on don't have such an elitist attitude as if we al don't appreciate your intellect..

Next time you write something do something fresh and not just 'recycled' form 4 year ago... its bad enough that Politicians use that excuse for selling assets for short-term budget issues, we don't need articles like yours on OLO mimicking their example with your dated IPA article. Move on mate and write something of value that is new thought!

Sign of a true leftie, even when a much self believing author, he can't take criticism and when stumped resorts to abuse and fowl language... go find a protest march to join, rather than pretending to be a thinker mate!
