All media should be held to a high standard. Lies don't become any less damaging to public consciousness if they're propagated by a private company.

I hope you apply that same attitude to politicians and are appalled by their attempts to avoid any scrutiny regarding corruption.
An owner of a media outlet is able to have his say, & its naive to believe those who choose to take the ABC are any less able to recognise spin when its laid on - we all know there are many devotees of a particular paper, radio station or newspaper. In my experience such devotees are less critical of issues being discussed.'Hear what they want to hear'.

Completely erroneous conclusion.

You seriously suggesting we would just destroy one of the most important institutions in Australian life over the last 80 years, simply because it's not as excellent as it used to be? Do you have any idea how precious such things are, how difficult to replicate? The ABC is like old-growth forest.

The answer is twofold. 1. Fund it properly. It costs each one of us bugger all anyway. 2. And stop politically interfering in it. Look at the government's witchhunt against Laura Tingle, a very professional and incisive finance journalist who pulls apart some of the government's more egregious economic claims. (Why wouldn't you want someone like that holding the government to account? It's our money after all.) A sensible government with belief in its own policies would look at their policies and examine what needs adjusting. This government goes on a jihad to destroy her.

Anyway, getting off topic here.
Nothing professional about La Tingles use of twitter. Destroyed her credibility built up over years at the AFR. Yes, its off topic.
