Is the ABC edging out SBS? No one at the ABC told SBS that Aunty intends to schedule Foreign Correspondent at the same time as SBS' Dateline, SBS managing director Michael Ebeid told Senate estimates this morning.

"Given there’s very few international current affairs programs in Australia, I think it’s a bit of a waste, frankly, to have them on at same time. And Dateline has been in the slot for last four years. I’m disappointed, and still am."
