I decided not to attend the AML function as preferred to spend the time with my children to use the occasion as educational. We sat down to watch the ABC coverage and almost immediately my children (aged 11 and 9) were horrified at the pro republican and biased attack on the monarchy. My children were upset at what they said was disrespectful. We voted with our feet and changed to Channel 7 who gave an unbiased and thoughtful coverage of the event. Unfortunately, I can’t quote specific examples as we chose not to watch the ABC after an unknown “expert” expressed a very anti-monarchist view shortly after 6pm with ABC anchors doing agreeing head nods. It saddens me greatly that I can no longer rely on the ABC to inform and educate which are their charter requirements.
