Ahead of the federal election, the ABC’s director of news and current affairs John Cameron this week sent the following memo to ABC staff:
As the only genuinely independent (non-commercial and apolitical) mainstream media outlet in Australia, we’re well placed to again be the primary source of comprehensive and balanced election news in the months ahead.
Let’s live up to that reputation by maintaining our even-handed approach at regional, state, and federal levels.
By voting day we will have put to air – or posted online – tens of thousands of election-related stories. The scrutiny of that coverage is intense.
Climate change/global warming is one very specific issue which is already generating plenty of heat. It’s a complex and sensitive area, and it’s our responsibility to take no side of the argument for granted.
Here’s to a successful ABC news and current affairs election year.
(Via an Ultimo mole – or, if you will, an Ultimole.)
