FASCIST ENEMY OF CULTURE, Andrew Bolt, finds one egregious example from the National Museum's display that escaped attention from the Review that reported on Wednesday.

The panel fails to pick up one other flaw in the National Museum that betrays its bias -- the display on political milestones that is dominated by Left icons such as Bob Brown's life jacket, a Gough Whitlam poster and a peace protester's hat.

It shows the arrogance of the communards in control of our cultural commanding heights that even when such ludicrous and indefensible cases of bias are pointed out, they refuse to make even a tactical retreat.
