WHAT'S THAT IN YOUR POCKET, AUNTIE?

The point about 'pockets' or concentrations of bias is worthy of further consideration. I listen to and watch a variety of ABC material and have concluded in my own very subjective way that bias seems to be greatest in the ABC the more the station is detached from a local geographic focus. By this I mean that in general, our local ... ABC is pretty well OK in terms of much of its locally produced material.

Leftist bias only becomes very obvious on our local ABC radion station when national material such as AM, PM is broadcast. On the other hand, the geographically disconnected 'Radio National' is the epicentre of leftist bias.
