Complaint of bias, disrespect and inaccuracy to ABC (Australian public broadcaster)

My complaint submitted to ABC about the article: “How coronavirus ‘changes the game’ for the anti-vaccination movement” BY ARIEL BOGLE, MICHAEL WORKMAN AND STEPHEN HUTCHEON, posted on abc.net.au on SUN 31 May 2020 From the ridiculous, inaccurate and overly dramatic opening line: “as humanity waits impatiently for a vaccine”… one can tell instantly this is…

Journalism and TRUTH the first casualty…

To the New York Times, if anybody is still manning the ship… I am so disappointed at the biased and inaccurate reporting I am seeing from the NYT these days!

World on its head!!

census…consensus?

I am shocked. They somehow managed to pass a law in Australia (without any of us noticing) making it compulsory to comply with the upcoming census – and you can be fined outrageously if you don’t fill it in ‘correctly‘. Where, rights to privacy, freedom, democracy, yadda yadda…??!!    Still reeling from the discovery that…

What is in our hands – can we change the world ? 

To answer as simply as possible, we can start making a difference in our world – NOW and with what is already in our hands. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” – Edmund Bourke A lifelong pursuit of these questions – I have read so many…

silence please…

   can we have a minute of silence for the thousands of drowned refugees – yes, all of them – not just the toddler whose body washed up on a beach and captured the attention of many… for a few days… also, a minute of silence for all of those thousands who will continue to make the crossing,…
