    ABC should be subscription only.

  2. Roger

    Sue the ABC, Milligan, Vicpol et. al..

    The cardinal may have adopted a forgive and forget attitude but this is a matter of national importance.

    If they get away with it it’s only a matter of time before they try the same tactics on someone else whose traditional views they find beyond the pale.

    Inappropriate

    Bug class weasel word.

    How about:

    Deceptive
    Incorrect
    Misleading
    Pejorative
    Slanderous
    Defamatory
    Wrong

    Real words with real meanings, used by real people with backbones.

    The cardinal may have adopted a forgive and forget attitude but this is a matter of national importance.

    Regrettably true. This time it was Cardinal Pell, but what about when they do the same thing to someone with a lower profile whose tragedy will play out beyond the hearing of the broader public.

  5. Mother Lode

    Bug class weasel word.

    The ABC considers that an apology would be ‘unhelpful’.

  6. Geriatric Mayfly

    They couldn’t even finish the Leftst trifecta. Inappropriate, Unacceptable and Problematic.

  7. H B Bear

    What will it take for the Federal government (either branch of the UniParty) to act?

  8. miltonf

    Inappropriate

    Bug class weasel word.

    Sure is. NSW pubic service- ‘I don’t know if that’s appropriate’. The bumptious little bastard used to use that word a lot too.

  9. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    calli – another example below:

    The ALPBC recognises this was regrettable in light of his successful appeal and acquittal by the High Court (7-0) of his previous conviction for child sexual abuse.

    Shut it down, etc.

  10. H B Bear

    The Emma Alberscreechi case is a useful case study. A few weeks of mildly critical press. a few tweets from the usual suspects and now we will not hear from the overpaid, otherwise unemployable prima donna again. Rinse and repeat.

  11. Bronson

    How’s the bonuses going Ita? Why do abc public servants get bonuses for falling viewer numbers and shrinking circulation? If Oz post gets slotted for the practice why not abc?

  12. H B Bear

    The ALPBC needs an Al Dunlap to go in and recreate The Texas Chainsaw Masacre. It would be more entertaining than anything Ita would commission.

  13. Tom

    (ABC) News Channel: On 1 October 2020, Cardinal George Pell was described as ‘disgraced’ in bottom of the screen text during a news bulletin. The ABC recognises this was inappropriate in light of his successful appeal and acquittal by the High Court of his previous conviction for child sexual abuse.

    It simply appears under the generic tagline “Corrections and Clarifications” and the headline “Cardinal Pell”. Absolutely no apology because, outside of its inner-city Greens propaganda factory in Ultimo, which employs most of its staff, the ABC if for “smart, intelligent people in the outer suburbs and the big regional cities”, according to news director Gaven Morris.

    That doesn’t include those who support the High Court’s 7-0 rejection of the ABC-backed Victorian kangaroo court decision that convicted Pell.

    Or the smart intelligent taxpayers sick of having to pay for the ABC’s neverending anti-Christian propaganda dressed up as news.

  14. Walter Plinge

    Ya reckon Paul Barry will mention this? Crickets.

  15. Geriatric Mayfly

    The ALPBC recognises this was regrettable in light of his successful appeal and acquittal by the High Court (7-0) of his previous conviction for child sexual abuse.

    The ABC admits that this was deliberate and we thought we would get away with it – again.

  16. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Humiliated and beclowned,

    Normal for the A.B.C.

  17. candy

    “Inappropriate” does not necessarily mean wrong, just that a word or whatever was not suitable for the occasion, nothing to do with correct or incorrect.
    They still think he raped boys and will still pester him.

  18. win

    Weazle words, ”previous conviction ”, What previous conviction would that be AbC. please elaborate.

  19. Geriatric Mayfly

    I was forced to watch the ABC yesterday, something I refuse to do under any circumstances. Fully reclined on the dentist’s chaise longue the screen was directly above on the ceiling. I begged for a total anaesthetic – declined; instead he offered me earphones in case I missed any of the running text. One hour of it, the highlight being Gaia friendly chicken farming and the millions poured into sanctified energy by one of those heroes the ABC is so adept at finding. Right down to the ABC approved methods of dealing with mountains of chicken shit. Conditioned from an early age to give dentists a wide berth, an added disincentive has now arisen.

  20. They certainly make it clear this type of slur is no accident.

  21. Franx

    Staying with ‘inappropriate‘:

    ‘The ABC recognise this as inappropriate in light of his inappropriate conviction.’

    That which was a ‘previous conviction’ was rescinded.

  22. Ben

    Perhaps somebody clever with databases could download the history of ABC corrections and report some statistics showing the ABC’s record of corrections in terms of how many times they have reported incorrectly in favour of conservatives, vs corrections not in favour of conservatives.

  23. Bruce of Newcastle

    ABC news is now ABC fiction.

    Their lies are egregious and their brains are tofu. They should be all deported to Yemen, where at least they’d encounter reality for once.

  24. You won’t hear about this on the incredibly ludicrous ABC Media Watch.

  25. JohnL

    Regrettably true. This time it was Cardinal Pell, but what about when they do the same thing to someone with a lower profile whose tragedy will play out beyond the hearing of the broader public.

    They already have done it to our SAS heroes and others.

  26. Geriatric Mayfly

    It does not have to go through both Houses. All that is needed in the first instance are a few warning shots from Morrison and the useless Fletcher for the ABC to start getting their act together in the interests of the 50% of Australians it scoffs, insults, badgers and traduces on a daily basis.

  27. Pauly

    The word they were looking fir was ‘exonerated’. I know it’s easy to confuse disgraced and exonerated, but at any good bookstore they should be able to find a dictionary and a thesaurus for the news room.

  28. RJH

    Until the ABC Management are forced by their ultimate employers, the Federal Government, to name, shame & hold responsible the individual haters/perpetrators/instigators of their defamatory behaviour NOTHING is going to change, no matter how many ineffectual Itas they employ! Time for Conservatives to wake up & copy the Leftist rules of engagement – Take no Prisoners?

  29. notafan

    Why did you make that comment candygrig?

  30. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    They should be all deported to Yemen

    That would be the ones that survive being nuked from orbit.

  31. BrettW

    Is Ita still in lockdown ? She is not doing much for her chairperson payment.

  32. mareeS

    ABC has disgraced itself over Pell, the same as did Frank Hardy in his earlier character assassination of Cardinal Malone. Cmmunists have a record of doing that.

  33. H B Bear

    She is not doing much for her chairperson payment.

    Do they ever?

    It seems only the Federal government subscribes to the fiction ALPBC management runs the staff co-op.

  34. Lurks

    Be grateful.
    If those mangy scumbags that currently voice their hatred via the ABC were forced to disperse and spread their disease into other networks, we would have more stations that would require the off button

  35. Morsie

    Defamatory, Pell should sue for his retirement fund.

  36. Pete of Perth

    Trump should sue for all the bull they peddle about him. If successful, the money is deducted from the ABC budget and donated to Legacy

  37. Frank

    Right down to the ABC approved methods of dealing with mountains of chicken shit.

    There’s a lot of money in chicken shit, in fact I met a chicken shit baron once. He could rustle up a semi full of the stuff to order and was richly rewarded for his ability to do so. A certain foyer in Ultimo springs to mind.

  38. The word they were looking fir was ‘exonerated’.

    What was the doctrine on dealing with the ABC again? Oh yeah.

    Shut it down.
    Fire them all.
    Burn it to the ground.
    Salt the earth.

  41. SydGal

    How disgraceful of the ABC. I can no longer trust them after their coverage of the Cardinal Pell case. I’ve sent in my complaint in relation to this latest matter.

  42. covid ate my homework

    As a ten year old I found the ABC weird and sleazy and switched it off. Never watched it outside of F Troop and The Ghost and Mrs Muir but changed channels as soon as these shows ended. Since then I can swear that the last 50 odd years of my life have been ABC free.

  43. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Nighthawk – not quite. This:

    Shut it down
    Fire them all
    Mound of skulls
    Salt the earth
    Nuke from orbit

  44. Up The Workers!

    The disgraced A.L.P.B.C.

    When are they going to relieve their monstrously huge payroll of all the liars, fraudsters, hate-mongers and slanderers on their staff?

    When will the Walkley Awards be recast to reward GOOD journalism rather than wrongologist Leftard hate-preachers?

  45. Up The Workers!

    it’s only a minute and a bit, but Adams apparently hasn’t fully digested the outcome of the Pell case (or what may be yet to come?). an incoherent Knox calls the usual suspects incoherent.

    13m58s in, (paraphrasing) Adams is confused, asks Knox how George Pell can be recast as an underdog, a victim. HOW does that work?
    Knox: it’s not only Pell. it’s this whole grab-bag of issues for the radical – call them the Trump right, the Mark Latham right, the Pauline Hanson right. there’s no real coherence in the positions that are taken etc.

    What can one say that hasn’t been said a thousand times – to no effect?
    We have politicians that can’t run a country properly, just run it into the ground while steering left into climate change-ism and green nihilism.

    Dear Prime Minister, with cc to Federal Treasurer:

    Since the ABC is not doing its job of uplifting and encouraging 50% of the Australian populace and is only catering for the 50% which already agrees with its editorial stance, I recommend a cut in its budget over the next triennium of 50%.

    If the ABC continues its inappropriate behaviour, I recommend further that the next triennium budget be cut by another 50%.

    Thereafter, I recommend cuts be applied until its budget allocation matches the audience reach it actually achieves. At present I believe that figure is approximately 8% of the population.

  50. Penguinite

    Arrogance personified in persons of ABC news reporters and editors!

  51. Roberto

    The ABC will never give up.

  52. Dot

    When will the indictments for perverting the course of justice begin to be filed?

  53. Old Lefty

    With all due respect to Geriatric Mayfly and others, it’s not just the 50% of Australians who voted Coalition that the ABC despises. It’s also the vast majority of the ordinary, decent people who vote Labor out of tribal loyalty without realising what they are really voting for. And remember, the ABC only ever attacks the ALP from the left.

  54. Old Lefty

    The ABC’s role in the corrupt and contemptible Stalinst political prosecution of Pell is Pravda to Andrews’ KGB.

    Barbara Heineback has been on Outsiders multiple times in the last 12 months. Her appearance on the ABC can only be because they are nervous about Biden failing to win tomorrow, and because she is a very very successful PR person. I like her a lot.

    I was forced to watch the ABC yesterday, something I refuse to do under any circumstances. Fully reclined on the dentist’s chaise longue the screen was directly above on the ceiling.

    My dentist has the same setup, but set to one of the commercials. It seems to be showing Ellen or something when I am there.

    Does not bother me as my preferred approach in the chair is to shut my eyes and zone out as much as possible. Generally works, as I see nothing and the sound is barely noticeable above the chatter of the dentist and her assistant. Not like this, either (first minute):

    Old lefty and covod ate my home work
    Old lefty- abc have always ridicules the hetro couple living in the suburbs, having a real job, having children.
    Covid ate my home work – I still remember as a child/teenager watching tv late mornings in the holidays and this guy was talking about adults having sex with children or special love for children. It was not specifically said but even at the age I knew what he was talking about , at the end of it I just felt sympathetic for pedo.
    ABC – get rid of the sewer student union and you get rid of these intelligent, impractical and unskilled upper income twats.
