at Albury Wodonga Community College

Guest Speaker: Ivor Donohue

Topic: Our ABC – How do you rate its integrity and performance?

Ivor joined ABC Friends in 2003 and recently retired from the State Committee. He is Chairperson of ABC Friends Southern Bayside Group.

He wants to put before you an outline on how the ABC’s Charter defines its operation, the role and selection of the Board of Directors and how the editorial guidelines covering the provision of news, current affairs, educational and entertainment are designed to provide accurate and impartial news and information.

He will also discuss the allegations of bias and complaints made to the ABC and to the Australian Communication and Media Authority and give the details of his research into such complaints.

He encourages all to come along and tell him what you like and don’t like about the ABC and any evidence you have relating to inaccuracies and bias in the ABC’s coverage of events.
