Former ABC chairman, Maurice Newman warned of the global warming group think in the ABC:
In March 2010 as chairman, I addressed an in-house conference of 250 ABC leaders… I blamed group think and used climate change as an example…
Jonathon Holmes, the presenter of Media Watch, was so angry “he could not concentrate"… I was interviewed by PM and teased as to whether I was a “climate change denier or not as obvious as that?” .
I retain a deep affection for the ABC. But, like the BBC, there are signs that a small but powerful group has captured the corporation, at least on climate change.
