ABC crying poor over cuts to funding

from Robert J Lee

The remuneration received by those at the top of the ABC is far in excess of normal pay for journalists, photographers or editors in the print media and for most of those ‘hot shot’ TV presenters in the private sector.

What makes the politically correct ABC so special? Maybe it is because the public broadcaster panders to all minorities, the Greens and the ALP, Islamic terrorists, illegal immigrants, gay rights and marriage, hairy-legged feminists, gay mardigras, anything remotely connected with the ever-changing climate, Unions, Jews, political scandals relating to everybody except the ALP and Greens, Gough Whitless, Zionist Hawke, guns or anything that could remotely be used to fire a projectile, animals having more rights than humans or just about any malcontent person or group that has helped destroy the Australian economy and way of life.

Apologies to any we have left out.

This is what the public pays to get jaundiced and skewed programs about the abovementioned subjects. The only defence we can offer against halving the ABC funding is the good job it does covering rural events, information and regional news bulletins, except the ABC forgot to mention the huge ‘Bank Buster’ 400 strong meeting at Winton two weeks ago with keynote speakers Alan Jones of 2GB and the effervescent Bob Katter. Jonesy has long been a critic of the ABC and its off-the-planet reporting of the natural climate and other screwed-up programming. So to the detriment of it public paymasters the ABC simply ignored it. Its Cairns Rural reporter, Charley McKillop(no relation to the recently installed Catholic saint Mary) comes right out of the Liberal camp, having once stood for the free-trading Libs in the federal seat of Leichardt. If you ain’t a Liberal it’s a no show on the Far North rural roundup.

Charley is a very capable presenter and probably one of the best ever seen in the Far North, but she hasn’t worked out yet that the indifference and callous disregard shown to starving northern producers by the Canberra Liberals has gone over like a lead balloon. The old guard has just about changed Charley!

Would any northern primary producers like to get onto this payroll?

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
