Would be wonderful if this letter (posted by Joni and written by a Muslim) went viral :) - Anne W
The IPA which is the Liberal Party , are putting pressure on the LNP to privatise the ABC and SBS and Getup have just started a campaign to prevent this happening.
Don't know if I care anymore, am disgusted with the ABC and hardly watch anymore .
Abbotts latest Reply to Budget was riddled with lies , ABC interviewers failed to call him out on these . He's a protected species in all the Media. - Carole/m
Emma, you are a fantastic journalist, you are fair and always well prepared. Unfortunately, I don't get to see your show very often as I'm usually in bed by the time you're on. I agree with some of the previous comments. Ullman is obviously a liberal party plant. His way of talking about the Prime Minister, smirking away, gleefully 'reporting' and adding his own two bobs worth at every opportunity, drives me mad everytime I see him. Sales is ok. She has her good interviews and her bad interviews, but I think she's clearly in over her head a lot of the time. I think the ABC should start up a new program with Emma and Virgina Trioli. That would be a show I'd stay up all night for :D - Debra
Have a look at [if you can find it], MrAbbott being interviewed in Devonport in Tasmania mainly about the Ford closure but a journalist, a real journalist, asked him questions that he didn't like and see his reaction. He was increasingly displeased with the questioner and it was plain for all to see, time that the msm asked some real questions and pressed him on answers and let's see how how handles it. - Lindy
I am delighted to say this product REALLY works. Usually skeptical about wrinkle correction claims, I was surprised to notice results after only a few days of morning and night use. Even my teenage son noticed and said I should have taken 'before and after' shots!
It has a lovely, light, non-greasy texture, and has given my eye area a much fresher appearance without any irritation or sensitivity. Thanks for the opportunity to try it, love your work Clinique! - Melissa Williams
@ Sally "What more can anyone say about savagery carried out in the name of religion?"
I'm sure my ears heard one of the perpetrators say it was in retaliation for British troops invading Afghanistan, just before he apologised that women had to see it, like so many women in Afghanistan have had to witness so many atrocities.
Even PM David Cameron pretended not to know why it happened. Duh! It's not about "buckling" David, it's about not sending troops to invade countries. Most of their citizens have had enough, so how surprising is it that a "hot head" lashes out. I'm fairly sure if Australia had been invaded for years with so many innocent people killed and maimed there'd be an Aussie "hot head" or two who'd take drastic action to try and make it stop!
The perpetrator also clearly said British politicans don't care how long their war goes on or how many people in Afghanistan are killed and maimed, so don't fall for the religion-based lie the politicians want us to swallow. Make no mistake, it's all about the atrocious war in Afghanistan! - MicheleS
Hazel has not been far from my mind since she was diagnosed with dementia. She was a wonderfully down to earth, smiling example of an Australian woman who worked tirelessly for her family and her country. My thoughts are with her family today. Hazel will be remembered for a very long time, for all the right reasons. Vale Hazel. - Nel Matheson
My laugh for today. Wonderful, bonkers questions! Ah Kaz, there's lots more material out there for you to harvest! Great books. - Nel Matheson
Enjoyed the article immensely. I think that journalists will always be viewed from an individuals perspective and biased viewpoint, no matter how hard the journo tries to keep it fair and reasonable. I do have a problem when I see TV journos going for the jugular, not allowing the interviewee to finish a statement or sentence, and for aggressive questioning. But on the other hand, it's frustrating when interviewees constantly block, sidestep and waffle on without any intention of accurately responding to the question. I wouldn't want a journalists job for all the tea in China, as they say! You have my sincere admiration for the work you do. - Nel Matheson
