    It has been so disappointing watching this type of thing happen more and more at the ABC. I tend to jump to a narrative of a slow and sad decline but it’s quite possible that they were never any better and I just didn’t know it. I honestly used to have real respect for the institution until about 5-6 years ago.

    Whether this is a case of a cynical untruthful ABC creating conditions where their reporting is deliberately compromised to serve hidden interests or a weak victimized ABC forced in to the sorry state they’re in by malign forces the result is the same.

    I’m curious what the legal threat this group of lawyers was able to raise as a spectre over a large public broadcaster actually was. It’s hard to imagine how sharing the findings of a different, well respected organization truthfully reporting what many others have also reported, could be illegal, perhaps the ABC could report on these threats since it would indeed be in the public interest to know.

    Modern day Nazism.

    You’re seeing it play out in real time, and many are seeing it from the same prospective as the German upper class did. So many would say “I would do better if I were put in that situation” but is that really the case? Anyone calling this the “Hamas War” is already doing massive amounts of genocide denial.
