The Australian Broadcasting Commission ( ABC.net ) is frequently biased. When some footage got out of indigenous juveniles rioting at a youth detention centre each time the footage was shown it was edited more and more.
One inmate was photographed secured to a chair with a hood over his head. Yep not nice and it was done till he calmed down and also to prevent him spitting in the faces of the staff.
The media were so shocked.. tut tut. Did they seek out the owners of the cars that had been stolen or home owners whos homes had been burgles and wrecked by the inmates, for their opinion?
There was footage shown of sheep in heat distress on a 'live export' ship. It later came out that the crew turned off the fans and water so the animals would be distressed and took the footage which they sold. The media didnt wish to know that though.
We have a senator here (Hansen) who frequently says things in sincerity that backfire on her. She is easy bait for the extreme 'Ms'- persons' of the ABC who after one interview were openly gloating over the Senator.
I conclude the media presenters are all from the upper echelons of society and no personal experience in the real world..
Any of you recall Lindy Chamberlain the mother of the baby that disappeared at Eayres Rock or few of you will know of Justice Murphy both suffered crucifixion by media.
