The Australian Broadcasting Corporation: too important to be left to its Friends. Email.
Media Watch, 1

THE FOUR CORNERS coverage of the Jewish neocon conspiracy in the US was a direct copy of an eerily similar Frontline treatment of the same subject.
Will tonight's report by Jonathan Holmes on North Korea be a knock-off of the Frontline re-broadcast of the BBC love-in with their North Korean minders? We shall soon see.
To do the BBC report, reporter Ben Anderson had to actually go to North Korea, a testing experience that allowed him to learn absolutely nothing.
Uncle expects that Holmes will satisfy himself with vox pops with pundits.
Here's one absolute certainty for free. The Gruesome Crew at Media Watch will never accuse Holmes of plagiarism, no matter how many good ideas he knocks off. Unlike their defamation of Sixty Minutes for doing the same.
