SHUT DOWN THE ABC “NEWS” AND CURRENT AFFAIRS DIVISION

This is our ABC. Hardly an honest word to be found anywhere in this story. And where true, not an ounce of sympathy for anyone who might be affected. Not just propaganda, but Chinese propaganda. Watching the ABC for news is a form of self-administered ignorance. This is despicable. And what is worst of all, not only is everything below modern media misdirection, along with CNN and the rest, but it is also what the journalists, reporters, management and administration at the ABC appear to want and hope to be true. They appear to want people to die, and the more that die the better since these deaths might move the political centre to the left.

Coronavirus is hurting America’s place as a world leader while China appears to rise

Updated 

Yesterday in America, 1,940 people died from coronavirus. In a single day, 31,935 new infections were recorded.

I personally know five people who have been told they have COVID-19.

Only one of them was able to get a test and it came back inconclusive.

The rest were told by their doctors “don’t bother” because there weren’t enough test kits to go around.

On the testing front, things have improved greatly in recent weeks, but not everywhere.

An empty street in New York

And yet, since the start of the crisis, the President has boasted about America’s testing capacity.

“Anyone who needs a test gets a test … and they’re beautiful,” Donald Trump said during a tour of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

That was five weeks ago.

America is now the world’s ‘worst-case scenario’

In New York, things are looking so dire that prison inmates are being asked to don protective gear as they dig mass graves on Hart Island in the Bronx.

The island has been used for decades to bury New Yorkers with no next of kin or no money to afford a proper funeral.

As COVID-19-related deaths surge, new trenches have been dug to cope with an expected influx of coffins.

Furthermore, the official death toll in New York hasn’t been counting those who died outside of hospital.

On Monday, that was 280 people.

So, it’s very likely the real number of infections and deaths is much higher than the already-staggering published numbers.

The world is no longer measuring the “worst-case scenario” against Wuhan, Italy or Spain.

For now, America is the benchmark.

A nation accustomed to being a world-beater in business, innovation, sport and on the battlefield, has been reduced to its knees.

    You’d almost think Lipson was enjoying the horror unfolding in New York.

    That can’t be right. He must be a civilised, caring person.

    Perhaps someone from the CCP has hacked his account.

    The ABC should pay damages to George Pell and the Vatican.
    About $1.3 billion per year in perpetuity should do it.

    The ABC needs to be shut down entirely. Most of its programs are infected by leftism. From time to time I enjoy A Big Country, produced by their regional people. It has a collection of real life stories featuring real people! That was something the old ABC had no problem doing back before the long march through.

  4. NoFixedAddress

    What is actually highlighted is that our system of Governance, whether the body politic or the bureaucracy, at the Federal, State and Local level is not fit for the purpose of a so called free people.

    We are mere tax serfs to the Morlochs who feed upon us.

    Time to revisit Federation and double or triple the number of States who can more represent themselves on a Regional basis instead of having Inner City Elites suffocating us.

    At the time of Federation the population of the different States were not even of Electoral size and I fail to see how what was decided back then actually works anymore.

  5. It’s probably not gunna happen, but could we send some of the ABC’s finest to Wuhan for some live(for a little while) on the ground reporting?

    The ABC is an abomination and is another excrescence from the parasite robber state that is Canberra.

    The whole system of government in Australia is definitely broken. I think a big part of the problem is the emergence of a political cast that lives off and is hostile to people who actually work.

    I noticed one of the subheadings at the above link:

    China is stepping up to help globally

    China has been extending a helping hand to other nations as well.

    Yes, the Chinese are “helping” out of the “goodness” of their hearts, not for profit.
    Can the media grovel any lower to China?

    Come to think of it, the ABC has been pretty sweet on Red China ever since I can remember.

    Yes, the Chinese are “helping” out of the “goodness” of their hearts, not for profit.
    Can the media grovel any lower to China?

    And some of that “help” has been in the form of faulty products that were sold, not donated.

    And yes, the Australian media has not yet begun to grovel!

    Shutdown? Nonsense. The place needs to be torn down, bulldozed up and dumped at sea. Any document or file mentioning that it ever existed needs to be destroyed utterly. Any person who worked for them needs to be classed as a biohazard, deported and forcibly enrolled in the Syrian army.
    Shutdown? Nonsense. A full on Stalinist cleansing is needed.

I’m sure Tony Jones her squeeze (yuk, but that’s a personal view) and she will live a fully sustainable life now she is off to Beijing to run the ABC China Bureau after being promoted/rewarded for good works in a similar vein as the head of the WHO for his good works in covering up health concerns and epidemics in third world nations.

    1) ABC staff should all be from marginalised groups.
    2) ABC salaries should be capped at the average weekly wage.
    3) ABC staff should both work and live in regional and outer suburban areas to be amongst the people for whom they so care. In particular they should reside in Aboriginal settlements.
    4) The ABC should be run as a collective with rotating roles.
    5) The ABC should be run only from green energy at all times.
    6) All programs screened on the ABC should be vetted for sexism, racism, gender diversity (including all 78 genders). All races, genders, and every other minority attribute should be represented, and only by members of that group.

    Meanwhile – the opposite is happening – and the ABC virus is now set up to infect the j’ism students in greater western Sydney:

    New ABC Western Sydney newsroom opens for business

    Posted 13th March 2020

    From Monday 16 March the ABC’s new Western Sydney newsroom will officially be open for business, doubling the number of permanent News staff on location from three in the old office to six and adding the capacity to broadcast live radio programs in future.

    The new office is a big upgrade from our previous Parramatta location. The newsroom is equipped for video and audio news production and editing and has space for 12 staff, including two Local Communities Reporters, who will focus on finding and telling the stories of Western Sydney’s many diverse communities.

    Under a partnership with Western Sydney University journalism students will also be able to do work experience in the newsroom as part of their course work.

    “Increasing our capacity in Western Sydney is key to the ABC’s strategic goal of getting out of capital city offices and into outer metropolitan areas,” says Director, News Gaven Morris.

    “Connecting with more Australians and telling the key stories from their communities is a top priority of ABC NEWS.”

    For Local Radio, a Parramatta studio will give better access to decision-makers and newsmakers in the greater Sydney region, and puts the local radio team right in the heart of the community it serves

    “Our local and regional services are at their best when they are working from within their local communities,” says Director, Regional & Local Judith Whelan.

    “To have a shopfront that puts us right in the heart of the community signals to everyone that we are serious about providing relevant coverage of what matters to those living in the western areas of the city.”

    Finishing touches to the office – a scuba shop when we found it – are now being made.

    The ABC no longer serves any useful purpose. Apart from biased reporting from its overseas posts, it takes a position on Australian issues.

    As a taxpayer-funded body, why is it allowed to get away with this?

    As there are alternative sources for all the services it provides, at the very least it should be reviewed with terms of reference that inquire into whether it should be terminated, or financed by public subscription, or privatised.

    Agreed, have worked in Central, north & even into western Queensland for years and in the last 5-10 noticed the absolute deterioration of the so called bush service it was meant to supply. The FM service is hopeless yartz & green propaganda that is un-listenable.

    When Johnny is ready and able to get his gun in defense of his own property, liberty expands. When he is handed a gun by the United States government and is told to take it on the run, liberty shrinks, beginning with Johnny and Johnny’s neighbors, who must finance Johnny’s adventure. In the name of extending liberty abroad, beginning with Benedict Arnold, Johnny has marched over there. When he returns — if he returns — he finds less liberty over here.
