You have been around for some time and I have been watching you for the same time. I haven't picked up any political bias on your part. At times I do look for bias, but I have never bothered with you.
But I do nail my political colours to the mast by saying, surely you are not so naive to think that when Abbott is elected, he won't indirectly have any say over ABC appointments. - Andrew
Dodieh, may you journalists, and your horses, always chomp on sweet grass. - ro.watson
Terra nullius~ what a fiction. RIP - ro.watson
and let us not forget the brave woman cradling the dead man as Ingrid spoke to the man in the picture... - ro.watson
Oh, I just realised that the "Gee" above must be the same "mother" with five children that works as a surgeon and can't think of a single work place where children can be present without causing problems!
I have been dwelling on that a bit, as I work at my desk writing, or outside with our horses (we have a stud farm), or in the office of my politican employer, with the children near me most of the time...
No public broadcaster...now, that would have to be a good thing..? - Dodieh
Loved girl stuff, and women's stuff, but having had two miscarriages in four months and no babies, it would be helpful if up the duff, (and all other books) took miscarriage seriously instead of it barely rating a mention. if you are pregnant and have a miscarriage it's a lonely feeling to have it barely acknowledged in your pregnancy 'bible'. not every women gets a happy ending., - Lee
Links to both the extract and competition entry for 'The Yearning' are broken.... - Jacqui
Thanks Carole~ yip, it was Claudia Wright, I believe too. What a big difference a few brave women can make in changing public awareness from knowing nothing about an area, to knowing something about an area... - ro.watson
Yay Emma! Thank you! As a journalist who has worked for the ABC, and who does not belong to a political party, I so agree with everything you have said! Even though I have quite strong political beliefs I have always bitten my tongue and remembered "two sides to the story", "what are the facts". We cop abuse from all quarters, and, as you say, when the critcism comes from all quarters, from both sides of the political spectrum, then that is some comfort.
You do a great job, as do most of the ABC journos! Where would we be without you! - Dodieh
sue elliott, you seem to be suggesting there is no inherent discrimination against women. That the only barrier to success is in self created and perpetuated. This is patently false. - Sharon
