This will likely go nowhere, but at least the time consumed by twisted intra-ABC arguments and justifications might eat into their ability to produce another Hezbollah-friendly kids’ show:

Australia’s Jewish community has written a letter of complaint to the ABC, claiming a children’s TV news program reporting the Middle East conflict was so wrong and biased it had the effect of “poisoning young minds”.

Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ) president Grahame Leonard wrote to the national broadcaster to complain about the segment featured on the July 25 edition of Behind The News …

The ECAJ says the report contained so much misinformation about the escalating Middle East conflict that the ABC must immediately correct the public record …

“The ABC has taken this complaint very seriously,” an ABC corporate spokeswoman said today.

“The story is currently being investigated by the ABC.”
