Ex-ABC board member discovers TV is boring

The opinion pages of The Australian are always open to anyone who wants to take a swing at the ABC. The latest critic: "contributing economics editor" Judith Sloan.

The opinion pages of The Australian are always open to anyone who wants to take a swing at the ABC. Today we were favoured by a strange diatribe attacking the Australia Network from Judith Sloan (bylined as the paper’s “contributing economics editor”). It seems she’s had some spare time during a visit to Asia and watched the AN service in her hotel room.

    So what you’re saying is that Sloane is guilty of iterating pointless repetitive transparently self-serving tosh?

    Who was that Howard-appointed ABC critic? — Why that there was The Sloane Ranger.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Every time Sloane opens her mouth or puts pen to paper, she proves beyond all reasonable doubt what an overeducated idiot she is.

    Judith Sloan’s style, as I’ve noted before, is to serve up a string of assertions that are politically palatable to Liberal Party supporters and completely unsupported by evidence, in the very realistic belief that the target audience won’t ask many questions.

    If history is any guide, the Oz’s right-leaning readership will put down the paper today convinced that Judith has just destroyed the case for the Australia Network and clearly explained why Murdoch’s Sky News should replace it.

    Putting the ignorant into pig-ignorant!
