    I bet Their ABC weren’t keen to divulge the information. What a waste of money! Most of the so-called “news” they broadcast the audience could find for themselves – with a visit to the Liberal Party website or The Australian. And the constant repetition of the line, “The Federal Opposition says …” has made the ABC a laughing-stock. So much for “investigative journalism”.

    Bad enough that we have to listen to the good ‘ol boy sanctimonious bullshit of “NASCAR on FOX”. Can’t wait till the broadcasts move to ESPN for a few races.
