Crikey says: don’t give up the fight on ABC, SBS independence

Razer on bubbling. Brandis meets the imams: why the Coalition can’t even run a bad culture war. Planet Janet’s greatest anti-ABC hits. Major glitch in FOFA repeal. ASIC rumours ahead of key court hearing. How Tassie could hold the Abbott govt to ransom. Tax-time teething problems for the ATO. And Sarah Palin's son displays his gun-toting T-shirt.

So it’s official — as Crikey tipped you off yesterday, conservative ideologue Janet Albrechtsen has been appointed to the nomination panel for the ABC and SBS boards.

    It also shows how thin-skinned, photosensitive and hypersensitive this government is of any sort of “criticism” (questioning)?
    The sort they don’t get from Murdoch’s conservative PR management at Limited News.

    I hope planet janet fails as spectacularly this time, as she did last time around, with her ideological bulls+it!
    Hands off ‘our’ ABC/SBS. This Murdoch/rAbbott government is the pits!!
