Positive discrimination for right-wingers?

I wonder if Janet Albrechtsen (The Australian, “Leftie insiders keep Aunty locked into groupthink”, 12/12) is aware of the irony of citing letters published by The Australian as evidence of genuine widespread concern about bias at her employer’s competitor, the ABC?

Her own evidence for this supposed bias is a three-to-two left-right ratio on some ABC opinion programs. Albrechtsen may be accustomed to positive discrimination for right-wingers at The Oz, but out in the real world of journalism – unfiltered by hand-picking of conservative commentators – that proportion is about right. Look it up.
