insults Australia's war dead (letter)
, December 17, 2005
I don't usually listen to ABC radio, but I did hear reports detailing the flow of questions on ABC Radio National's AM
program to the Prime Minister, on the hanging in Singapore of Van Tuong Nguyen on December 2.
ABC interviewer Jane Hutcheon suggested that John Howard should not attend a special cricket match and instead observe a minute's silence in honour of Van Tuong Nguyen.
This is an insult to the memory of our fallen veterans, and exemplifies what a bunch of perennial undergraduates we have at "our" ABC.
Even (or especially) Kerry O'Brien, on ABC television's 7:30 Report
, also plods along trying to trap John Howard. O'Brien should give up, because in any interview between the two, Howard always takes O'Brien to the cleaners.Frank Bellet,
