ABC: the in­side story

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

Memo to the next MD at the ABC: apart from meet­ing all the ob­vi­ous cri­te­ria to per­form the job well, you’ll also have to ex­cel at fawn­ing ob­se­quiously at se­nior staff who think they own the ABC, Phillip Adams be­ing an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple (“No sym­pa­thy for doomed duo”, Nov 24-25). Ig­nore this at your peril.

It’s not of­ten I agree with Phillip Adams but he re­ally hit the mark with his cri­tique on the ABC duo. The re­cent Four Cor­ners pro­gram about it­self would have been more mean­ing­ful if the story had been pro­duced by an out­side me­dia out­let. It is a bit like the banks in­ves­ti­gat­ing the banks – how can it pos­si­bly be ac­count­able and im­par­tial? How about it, Chan­nel Nine? Mar­i­lyn Quirk Hey­bridge, Tas
