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.
