AN UNTRUSTWORTHY HEAD WITH A LEFT-LEANING BLACK HEART
…Michelle Guthrie's ABC Monday programming worsens
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
If you give a national broadcaster a taxpayer-financed budget it will always devolve into an activist Left think tank, as has the Brits’ BBC. The rabid Left has always harboured an attraction for free money and its incestuous in-breeding ensures only the Left survives. But, like the doomed cheeta, incestuous in-breeding always faces eventual extinction.
A government will abide a costly people’s broadcaster in the interim providing it echoes the ideology of that government. When there is an uprising against a government its first act is to take over the people’s broadcaster. And that’s why a people’s broadcaster is a dangerous part of any free society because it’s only a matter of time before a failing regime will eventually feel the need to propagandise its straying people.
And that is not a big step to take when almost the entire media are already supportive of the rabid Left.
America relies on its cherished First Amendment (free speech) which has neither a place in, nor a need for, a national broadcaster. America can afford to sustain a corrupted Left leaning media that is curiously devastated when it realises, following elections, that it has had very little leverage on people’s minds.
Turnbull's ex-Fairfax hero, Mark Scott, who preceded Michelle Guthrie as ABC boss, both appallingly overpaid at close to a million PA.
Our (their) ABC flaunts the rejection of its charter with a wry grin, it knows where it wants to be. It cunningly develops warm and fuzzy children’s programs so, if a stupid politician like Tony Abbott ever tries to cut its obscene budget, it will claim only the children will suffer from such heartless frugality.
The politician is forced by his Party to back off fearing an electoral backlash and the broadcaster continues with its promotion of crap like global warming, an unabashed hoax, claiming that warming is destroying our Great Barrier Reef.
It’s not true of course, it’s really just another nail deftly driven into our coal coffin. Our broadcasters cannot mention global temperatures without claiming in the same breath that coal mining is killing our reefs… unadulterated bullshit, of course.
Without coral bleaching we can’t have new coral growth. Regular coral bleaching is as important as our regular bushfires are to the regeneration of our healthy bushland.
Coral bleaching is due to cyclones and natural predators like ravenous algae and the Crown of Thorns starfish, not water temperatures, as the world’s other great reefs thrive in temperatures far in excess of our reefs.
Coral rebirth replaces dead coral which becomes our pristine white beaches where the Left relaxes and orders its Chardonnay and oysters in between snorkling for deadly stuff.
In the meantime battling Aussie parents are saving up for a Barrier Reef holiday with the kids to show them what has been evolving, and will continue to evolve, for the next six million years with or without the coral drama-queens spewing their nonsense.
Nestled between Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia, the Red Sea’s magnificent coral reefs not only thrive in much hotter waters but also healthily contend with local pollution and rapid coastal development.
Anyway, if certain corals don’t like the temperature they simply move on to cooler or warmer waters… that’s why we have vibrant reefs that stretch thousands of kilometres. Reefs are mobile and adaptive.
If water temperature was critical to a reef’s survival it would stay put and not expand into various warmer or cooler waters… which it does. Therefore Cooktown's coral is not the same as Bundaberg’s coral.
The Middle Eastern coral seas are up to 10 degrees Celsius warmer than our Great Barrier Reef which has temps as low as a very uncomfortable14 C during winter. Yet the coral Seas of the Middle East, with average temperatures of 30 C, have equally, if not more, magnificent and well-adjusted coral reefs than ours.
The truth is the plethora of marine biologists pouring out of our Lefty universities needs to concoct false “temperature” disasters or they simply won’t have a job. And around this time there are budget considerations that require promoted “disasters” to ensure an increase.
The ABC/SBS and other government Agencies are extremely adept at increasing their budgets. Between these two media it receives 15,000 million dollars per annum, and it can’t possibly justify using all that money on programming, although it tries hard to do so. It solves that problem with ABC/SBS employees now disgracefully “earning” almost half of their entire budget. The ABC alone gets $1.2 billion a year. “Use it or lose it”, is the well-worn adage.
Turnbull will never rein in the ABC/SBS. He is the number one member of “Friends of the ABC” and an out-of-the-closet Lefty... and it was the despicable little Whitlam drug dealer, Al Grassby, who laid the ground work for the Libs’ Malcolm Fraser to established the SBS, so what hope is there for reform?
With far Left ABC chair, James Spigelman, a judicial fool who navigated the ABC even further Left and distant from its taxpaying owners
Even Tony Abbott was not game to decrease the obscene largesse by more than one per cent per year over five years, which was immediately reversed by Turnbull after he and his Party’s deputy, Julie Bishop, ruthlessly knifed him.
We cannot drain the billabong without a Donald Trump, so who cares who wins the next election? There are no Trumps in Canberra so we will continue to add decomposing scum to the fetid swamp until either terminal disease sets in or a revolution erupts with eventual extinction.
But we Aussies are far too easy-going for a revolution... I think!
