Your ABC

I worked there for 27 years, the ABC. From 1987 to 2014, when Tony Abbott decided he didn't like the cut of my jib and I had to go. (It was a routine redundancy, actually, but hey, if Spike Milligan could claim a part in Hitler's downfall...)

I gave 27 years of loyalty to that institution, to the newsroom (audio support), to the Charter, to public broadcasting, generally. One look at today's front page, loyalty vanished, banished, gone. From a clickbait clearly pro-antivax biased headline on a fact checked story that has the exact opposite finding, to dozens of factually incorrect headlines, this is not the journalisim the Broadcasting Act is looking for.

I can't even. If they've lost me, they've lost everybody but a few oddballs.
