ALSTON v ABC, WEEK EIGHT

Gerard Henderson questions the ABCís independent review of Senator Richard Alstonís complaints. Which is fair enough, because the review wasnít independent.

Glen Milne's article is also interesting. With a nice sting in the tail (final sentence).

`Forms of analysis' ?!

According to the ABC's website, 96.6 per cent of the complaints received by the ABC (Jan-Mar 2003) are completely wrong, with only 3.4 per cent being "fully or partially" correct.

I'm no statistician, but I'd have thought that a reasonable expectation for the distribution of complaints would be some sort of bell curve, with let's say, 30 per cent completely wrong, 30 per cent completely right and 40 per cent partly right/wrong.

The ABC is providing all the evidence required that it's a law unto itself. The balance of its findings in its own favour is just delusional.

So when will there be an inquiry into all the right wing bias across the media ?

It seems the ABC does a fine job of correcting the distorted, smug, arrogant neo-con cheerleading we have to put up with on web sites like this !

And as Marr said last night about Bolt, which applies equally to the rest of you... you can dish it out but you can't take it !

Why do you *have* to put up with all that neocon shit? Is your browser stuck?

Love how that's your only issue with TBF's post.

I wanted to ask TBF if their browser was stuck because maybe they could tell me how to unstick mine.
