ABC SMEARS AND HIDES

The ABC published this report earlier today:

New details have emerged about asylum seeker claims that Australian sailors mistreated them during a boat interception operation earlier this month. 

In fact, as Andrew Bolt points out, the report identified no mistreatment at all and actually called into question previous ABC coverage of claims from asylum seekers. And now the latest piece has been re-written to omit that mistreatment allegation:

Whenever the ABC feels scared or threatened, it instinctively tries to protect itself behind children. And now they’re doing it again, with the help of Benita Collings:

For us all, the ABC is a big part of our lives. Which is why I, like many Australians, believe that our national broadcaster should be left alone to continue its programs as it has in the past.

This is fantastic propaganda. Collings apparently believes that because the ABC put Big Ted on TV decades ago, it should be allowed to push claims in 2014 that Australian servicemen torture asylum seekers.

  1. Oh, and a propos CHILDREN… ABC sooooo tries to be like the BBC, in every aspect – wouldn’t it be time to have an enquiry into it regarding pedophilia? They found quite a few rock spiders at the BBC….

  2. “ABC put Big Ted on TV decades ago, it should be allowed to push claims in 2014 that Australian servicemen torture asylum seekers.”

    This story is more than being about specious claims.

    IMHO, the real outrage should be that good Australian servicemen are being slandered and that the potential for their lively hood is manipulatively being taken away from them by a bunch of schemers and chancers who want a free ride and and are being assisted by the ABC, a Lefty apologist organization.
