Tim Blair is eating my brain waves! The Australian Sauron delivered Sydney Morning Herald resident dingbat Jon Casimir the flogging he deserves, only earlier and better than me. Bastard.

For non-Oz readers, our national broadcaster sounds like a horrible cross between "All Things Considered" and Susan Sontag.

I will add one point Blair didn't raise: one of the excuses given for left-bias in the ABC is that this balances right-wing bias in the commercial media. The deeply silly part of this argument is the implication that if the commercial media was left-biased, the ABC would promptly swing to the right. Phillip Adams morphs into Stan Zemanek? Yeah, that's gonna happen.
