Leading intellectual Robert Manne:

Media Watch was once, unashamedly, a program of the left … Media Watch was sometimes unbalanced and unfair, usually intelligent and witty, always fearless and tough … The fact that it was not “impartial” was the key to its unpopularity in certain quarters, but also to its importance and success.

“Unashamedly a program of the left”? That’ll be news to former Media Watch host David Marr, who believed his program to be unbiased and that there was no systemic political bias on the ABC. Former Media Watch producer Peter McEvoy might be a little startled, too, having spent some years attempting to convince viewers of the show’s balanced worthiness.
