…Michelle Guthrie's ABC Monday programming worsens

Larry Pickering

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!            


They are in their lunatic life and we are their cash cow

DK...looks and reads like a Get Up page.

I can no longer abide the ABC's 'The Drum' 5.30 Pm offering. I am amazed they can find such an assortment of morons and leftie dunces and have them on national TV at the taxpayers expense while keeping a straight face. Each night is like a lucky dip, you wonder if the guy with the big green dunny brush mohawk is back to give us the benefit of his deep wisdom. They have this Arab sheila, done up in what looks like clobber you'd find in Alladin's cave, she's some sort of 'social inclusion' commentator. Try it and see if I'm right, Channel 2 at 5.15 Pm weeknights!

2GB - Labor promises to throw $17 billion of borrowed money at our floundering education system. Won't make one iota of difference though - the kids are being force fed leftist PC rubbish instead of the basics of life skills - infact I believe that what our educators are doing could be viewed as psychological child abuse and delection of duty.

Some handy break-up lines for the weekend fella's.

Hey baby, are you being followed? Because I've been seeing people behind your back.

Is it hot in here, or are you just suffocating me in this relationship?

I didn't know angels flew this close to the ground. Maybe that's because this angel's gained a little weight since we started going out.

You and me, we're like six balls in cricket. OVER!

I'm leaving you on religious grounds. I've decided to become a Jew, and you're a pig.

Matt Damon steps on a giant snake in Australia | Daily Mail Online
4 hours ago - Is that why he left Australia? Matt Damon steps on a giant snake during his trip Down Under to visit Chris Hemsworth... after his daughter Stella was stung by a jellyfish. By Daily Mail .... Best pals: Chris and Matt are best pals, and have been spending the last few weeks together in Byron Bay. 'He was like ...

There is little doubt that Trump was rooting Stormy and he was extremely foolish to have his shonk lawyer Cohen attempt to pay her off. He should have learnt a lesson from the great Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. In those days much of the British aristocracy were visiting Parisian brothels. Even Edward VIII because of his obesity had a special harness and pulley and rope erected over the bed so the prostitute could be lowered up and down. When Wellington was threatened with being named in a book by a pornographer as a customer of a French scarlet woman cut from the same mould as Stormy as an attempt at extortion, he famously responded “Publish and be damned.” The book was duly published, but Wellington’s reputation as a national hero was not affected at all. If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas. Trump has done himself irreparable damage by paying off Stormy and getting Cohen involved.

Last night's audio podcast of 'Outsiders' for anyone who is interested:

IE, if you do that and then use the filter to select 'today' or past hour or other, you can narrow it down to most current.

This is the sort of Twisting of a Story that the ABC are experts they can distort the facts with Political Correctness. A Mr Bill SHORT-ON, is apparently a bit of an amateur genealogical researcher, he discovered that his great-great uncle, had a colourful History in the United States , and was a fellow lacking in character, who was hanged for horse theft and train robbery in Texas in 1889. The only known photograph of Bill shows him standing on the gallows, waiting to be hanged.
On the back of the picture someone has scrawled:
‘Robert SHORT-ON; horse thief, sent to Texas Prison 1883, escaped 1887, robbed the Texas Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.’
After perusing the findings with his staff of professional image consultants, they decided to crop the picture, scan it, enlarge it, and edit it with image processing software so that all you can see is a head shot. It was then given to the ABC to be scripted appropriately.
The accompanying biographical sketch was subsequently prepared by the ABC for release to the Public:
“Robert SHORTON was a famous Texas cowboy in the late 1800s. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Texas railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, He was a key player in a vital investigation run the famous Pinkerton Detective Agency. Robert passed away in 1889 during an important civil function held his honour, when the platform he was standing on collapsed.”

This is an example of how the Media has been manipulating the Islamic Invasion/Global Warming NEWS and current affairs reporting in Australia. They don’t technically Lie and is Technically Factual but it has Nothing to do with Reality!

Crown Casino fined only $300,000 for manipulating poker machines. Ford and Telstra fined $10 million.Something stinks in Victoria. If Crown do not lose their licence to operate which is currently up for renewal,I would have to suggest that Corruption not only exists at the over site level but also to the top echelons of the Government.

good pickup DK.
