    I'm getting real sick of this shit. If anyone dares say anything that might oppose the Coalition's views then their simple solution is to try and silence them. I wish the ABC would just say "f**k 'em" and go all out but we know it's never going to happen, especially since Guthrie is an ex Turdoch employee.

    Poor Mitch.

    Can anyone point to the actual moment in time when the conservative side of politics got so goddamned whiney?

    They are so good at it we must conclude it’s been going on a while.

    The ABC is the ultimate troll of conservatives. It’s totes hilarious AF.

    We've been over this before butch

    Sky has far more leftist hosts and panellists than the ABC has conservatives

    You can make that argument when a conservative equivalent of Nicholas Reece gets a show on the ABC

    That’s truly fascinating James.

    Can you name all the leftist panelists on Sky News?

    Bolt had his own show

    Jones, Bolt, Piers, Gerard et al have all been on insiders and Q & A

    Which centrist commentators should the ABC invite on to balance things ?

    Solution: sell the ABC to avoid being exposed as a hack in the pocket of private industry.

    Sky has "leftists" as commentators.

    FMD, how hard right do you have to get.

    On topic, can anyone give specifics about the five complaints?

    Probably not. There are quite a few, so I'd probably miss some of them

    Can you name all of the conservatives on the ABC?

    Haha, that's how you dodge a wild claim, just turn the question back around

    Are you suggesting that it is a 'wild claim' to point out that sky news have conservative panellists?

    Have you ever actually watched it?

    No one has suggested any such thing James, however whilst we're on the subject of claims, how about we return to the actual claim being made that you were requested to back up........

    Well?

    Kristina Keneally had her own show before she decided she wanted back on the gravy train. As did Graham Richardson. Nicholas Reece still has one

    The likes of Stephen Conroy are regular panellists, and every panel show has representation from both sides. This on a privately owned channel which unlike the ABC is not required under a charter to provide balance

    Stick your fingers in your ears and her 'is not' if you like, but the ABC has become a parody of itself. Which is completely fine by you of course, because they're on your side. But you know as well as I do that you'd be screaming from the rooftops if the roles were reversed

    So you have four examples. is that the "far more than" to which you refer?

    That’s strange James, I thought you said there were quite a few of them?

    In terms of the ABC, I have a feeling that Richard Glover leans slightly right of centre, but as for the others I’m uncertain.

    Most ABC commentators on both radio and TV are fairly balanced.

    I won’t deny that there are leftist commentators/panelists on ABC, but as far as I can see, I could count them on one hand.

    If avoiding leftists on ABC is all you’re concerned about, steer clear of Wendy Harmer and James Valentine on the radio and Paul Barry and Tony Jones on the telly.

    That about sums it up for mine as far as “leftists on the ABC” are concerned.
