Do elites rule at the ABC? : Comments

By Peter West, published 29/10/2020

Is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation too focused on the interests of a relatively small group of people in the inner cities of Sydney and Melbourne?

Took a while, but Peter West Is simply chiming in safely to the latest clarion call from the conservatives, to bring the ABC to heel. That will be as an event, about as useful as a tit on a boar pig.

Their efforts are tokenism. The defunding of the sick mob is vastly inadequate and way way too slow.

And through Wests whole argument, not one mention of their infernal free advertising over a three year period, pushing the joys of homosexuality, and championing gay rights parallel with a loud anti Christianity tirade spanning the same period.

Iím sick to the top teeth of gutless responses to this subject!

Spot on Peter, But the ABC leftie luvees will hate you. If I recall Essery;' piece in May-ish this year got them nailed by replacing the " Our ABC" with Their ABC".

I would suggest given the current on screen presence and behind the scene dominance of left-wing Feminists female producers. REFORM is long over due, but I doubt Scomo or ITA the chairwoman will be doing anything about the unbalanced reporting on all issues, and with a feminist slant. The worms need to turn!

A very accurate description of the ABC.
The ABC supports any trendy proposal that sticks up.
It promotes the conventional Global Warming belief as the one exception.
They are like the "All whites are racists mob" they are the most
racist of all.

If anyone is to rule the ABC it should be the people, where the money comes from, via the Minister for Communications. But we have never had a Minister with the guts to the job.

There is no point in discussing it, though. It has been discussed, ad nauseum, for decades to no avail

In all Australia, only 0.2% are employed in the mining industry.

So we would not lose many jobs, if we lost/gave up/replaced fossil fuels!

Our coal industry is controlled or owned by foreign interests. Many with a record of tax evasion, price gouging and profit repatriation/and huge royalty holidays.

Soon there will be far fewer jobs in open-cut mining as robots take more and more production roles.

That said, agree with the repetitious emphasis on women's interests in the ABC, almost to the exclusion of science, given it's not a popular topic with most females? Seem to be able to come to a position on many topics, not completely supported by the science?

I mean ask any female ABC officinadia, how a nuclear reactor works and not one will be able to tell you. And as a rule for lack of interest. Or dismissed with a smorgasbord of misinformation?

Moreover, if you ask which source of energy, comes with the lowest death toll, greeted with absolute disbelief, when told, it's nuclear?

Similarly, the gender-based disbelief, is evidenced when they hear that nuclear power is able to provide reticulated domestic energy at less than 2 cents PKWH. That sunlight helps protect you from covid-19!

We know and I've predicted that our coal and gas export has a very limited life! And we could be left with many stranded assets, with our inability to consider replacing these with something that is more rational were we not held hostage by ancient, if powerful, vested interest!

And our ABC is part of the problem given how much is a city version of a CWA meeting? Except country women have wider horizons and more topics in their area of interest!?

At least that is what the available evidence seems to present?
