These two guys worked there for 12 and 14 years and were basically told to p-ss off, hand in your pass now and get out of the station immediately. Surely after that long a little more respect is due.

Whateley is doing a Tim Lane.  He is probably the closest radio/TV person to Tim Lane, as an articulate and intelligent broadcaster of virtually all sport. He does his homework and speaks kn

Like... WOW. That kind of sacking should only happen should you be revealed to have been involved in grave malfeasance. As far as I know, neither has been. This is bush league stuff. Wh

One would have to be very Left to think labelling the ABC Left is "unfair".

While at Uni, I had a part time job in a department store selling menswear.  It was appropriate protocol back then to ask a 'gentleman', while measuring his inside leg as to "what side sir dresses on?"

I'm a leftie.  What a crock.  Media bias is in the eye of the beholder.  Shock jocks can make political editorial comment and sell it as general news.  Good save the ABC I say.

Well done Mazer

 

Agree, a terrific summary of the landscape.I really liked Leach but have barely bothered since. Like mazer i just can't see where any new listeners are going to come from. I'll probably give Wheatley  a go but i hardly ever listen to the radio between 9 and 12 which understand is his slot?

The radio news is good. Have always liked it more than any other media.

But as a package, I would rejoice at the death of the ABC because of its enormous lefty bias in any show that has opinions on it.

It's the media arm of the ALP. Any channel that allows anti-Australian filth like yasmin to put its face forward deserves to have its funding withdrawn.

imo

 

Do you work on a particular show, or is it a more general job that you do? I'm surprised we didn't discuss it while on the turps in Philippines. Are the personalities there as big headed as we see on commercial media?

It is important to remember that a major part of their brief is to hold the government of the day accountable for their actions.  As it happens we have had to put up with the current mob for around 15 of the past 20 years being in power.  Is it any wonder that there may develop a perception that they are lefty when in fact they are doing their job.  

The real bias lies in the Fox News style of presentation which makes no effort to hide their leanings

We really should move this to another thread, although Ive been trying to avoid the General board for a while now.

That said.

"Lefty" does not simply mean government.

Same Sex Marriage, The Gender Pay Gap myth, Mass Migration, including economic "Refugees", islamisation of the west are all pet topics that you will find in the ABC barrow. They have zero to do with keeping anyone honest, and everything to do with leftist ideals and opinion. That's why they are reviled by so many.

And you shouldn't mention Fox without giving an equal shoutout to CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WAPO. Obama/Clinton cheerleaders one and all.

(I agree, it is probably derailing so I will keep it brief and move back to footy related issues) most of those issues look worthy of support to me but it is not my job to convince you that they are worthy or not as this is a football fan forum devoted to the greatest b#$%dy football team in the world - GO DEES!!

CNN & MSNBC are not so much biased or slanted in their coverage as stupid and unaware. They prefer bright shiny objects over actual reporting.

NYT cheerleaders? They have been running a vendetta against Clintons of all flavours for decades.

WaPo is the closest thing to fair and balanced of the lot of them.

 

"Equal shoutout"? This is known as "false equivalence". Two wrongs don't make a right. Don't excuse Fox for their execrable and antisocial coverage.

I was told earlier that Slobbo has been sacked by SEN.

I guess Hutchy realized that there would be a surplus of slovenly, unkempt bums should both of them stay on.

Does this mean Rohan Connolly might also be in trouble?

On a more serious note, I would expect Hutchy will be trying to steal Caroline Wilson from 3AW. He already has a working relationship with her and for all his "blokiness" I suspect he recognises that attracting more female listeners would be a good strategy to grow ratings for SEN. Having some female presenters would enhance those prospects. And it has been reported elsewhere that SEN is expected to announce some more on-air signings in the next few weeks.

Now Mark Fine has gone...

I thought he was the only decent footy analyst they had and Finey's final siren was a classic.

Plus Sam McLure is in for the 6 to 7 slot.

It's getting very vanilla...

What?

finey was the only one who spoke his mind

Wow. That is pathetic

Fine 13 years to late. Ultimate narcissist. Craig Hutchinson has gone up in my estimation.Won't be difficult for Heverin to have a more mature response to those who dare to disagree when compared to his infantile predecessor.

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
