ON MONDAY NIGHT'S Late Night Live a cosy stroke-fest between the Gastropod and two former Auntie heavy-weights, Bob Raymond and Tim Bowden.
Raymond, the founding producer of Four Corners when that was ground-breaking stuff for Australia, stepped outside the zone.
I regret, he said in Uncle's paraphrase, that the distinction between reporting and commentary has been lost in much of the ABC's news and current affairs programming.
He needs re-educating.
No wonder Bob Raymond only got the OAM. Not enough commentary for social change to win him Auntie's backing.
