    I turned on the ABC just before 5pm and shortly after switched to channel 7. I couldn’t believe how disrespectful and outright rude the ABC was. I was confused. I was seeing footage of the royals but was hearing very nasty comments about them. I was left feeling our country is going down the drainage.

    Is this going to be the new norm from the ABC? It’s not about your personal beliefs, it’s about professional unbiased TV.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how spiritual the coronation was. The king made vows of humility and service following the model of Christ. I can’t imagine any president being required to take such vows. Monarchy is a foil to politicians’ hubris.

    I watched the coronation at a friend’s house on channel 7, came home in time to see the appearance by his majesty King Charles the third on the balcony. Decided to check to see what some of the other coverages were like. The instant I turned to the ABC coverage, I heard some young lady making a very vitriolic and acidic comment, so I turned back to switch between the other channels. I stuck with channel 7 in the end, as it seemed quite respectful a quite a bit more dignified.

    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.

    I cannot understand why there is an urge by some to become a republic and change a system that has evolved the way it has and kept this country together. I hope our new King and Queen have a long and glorious reign and that includes as the “Head of State” of Australia. It seems referendum or not, the Governments of the day make change after change heading us in the direction of a republic. Without a mandate, without any consensus, except their personal desire to change the system. The most recent example being the appointment of a minister for a republic. That shows the arrogance of the current government in not respecting the previous referendums. And, remember this dishonest behavior only exemplifies what we can except when one of these political practitioners become our head of state. I can see any of them taking an oath as did the King to serve all.
