    I'll say it again, taxpayers pay for the ABC - which is supposed to be unbiased and cater to the entire population - not just those of the left. So it is not the same.

    There is not one conservative host on any of the ABC's political programs. I say sell the ABC, and see how well it stands on its own two feet....and own budget.

    How much do you listen/watch of the abc?

    Did you not see Leigh sales give it to Krudd?

    A fair bit. Which interview are you referring? I'm assuming a 7:30 one? When was it?

    Barry, no. Many of the regular panalists are quite obvious with their conservative views.

    My comment clearly said 'host', at which you called 'bullsh!t'.
    Your statement that many are conservative is a stretch. I would suggest that they have one, sometimes, on a panel of three. And even that is a stretch. The regularity of a conservative guest on Insiders has declined substantially over the last couple of months.

    A challenge to you, can you find an episode of Insiders that has had two conservative guests out of the three? (Not including Barry, who is of the left, which would actually make it 2 v 2, rather than either 1 v 3, or 0 v 4).

    I can save you time and suggest that there has never been 2 on the same panel. They are always outnumbered. Same with Q&A.

    You did say host and I clearly mistook the roles of the panalist as hosts. I'll own that one. I think there are conservative leaning hosts on the ABC but I can't prove it so I won't name names.

    As for the episodes of Insiders. I'll get back to you when I'm on a device that supports flash. I'm almost certain I've seen shows with more than on conservative on the panal.

    Guys you don't need to defend the abc to prove the argument posed by the OP. up to you but it's diversion. The issue of who funds media is irrelevant to the argument that media should be unbiased. Karl Marx himself could be running the ABC and it doesn't give News Limited the right to do what it's doing.

    So no I don't agree with you F, but that's as direct as I'll get on this.
