Apropos Quentin Dumpster’s letter today to Crikey. I do not recall Quentin protesting about the Labor appointments of Rod Cameron or John Bannon to the ABC Board.

If anyone has a conflict of interest it is Quentin Dempster himself, who, despite being a member of ABC News and Current Affairs, has yet again engaged in blatantly political comments. One problem with the ABC is that it leaks like a sieve and any Tom, Dick & Harry employed by the ABC seems to believe they have a God given right to publicly comment on ABC matters.
