How sure are you that the allegations would have received the same attention - publicly, letting Australian citizens know what was being done in their names - without the media reports?

2/3 I feel privileged to share a byline with Dan on those stories. They all remain available to read here I am not celebrating. I am not relieved. I will not breath easy until Dan no longer faces criminal charges for simply doing his job.

As the CDPP weighs up whether to prosecute journalists over these stories, you can judge for yourself whether they were in the public interest. They remain online

And who knew what? Upper echelons of Defence and intelligence communities are littered with men - always men - who presided over our special forces’ activities in Afghanistan. Do they escape scrutiny while operators are held to account?

Would just like to point out at this moment that whether or not we are ever charged or convicted over our stories, the most important thing is that those who broke our laws and the laws of armed conflict are held to account. Our nation should be better

So have declared they’re referring my colleague to the C’th prosecutors office ... to repeat that: the Australian Federal Police just referred an Australian journalist for prosecution over revelations about alleged unlawful killings by Aus soldiers.

"...don't ever again again allow politicians to diminish the public broadcaster. It is one of the most precious institutions we have." One year ago today spoke these words at his Logies Hall of Fame acceptance speech. More poignant now than ever.

Racing AND sports awards, but nothing for health. Because knowing which greyhound or horse was forced into running faster than the others is more important than a once-in-a-century pandemic killing half a million people globally. Sigh.

"Biggest data haul": the future of electioneering is surveillance heavy, according to MIT tech review of Trump / Biden apps.

Only a few months ago the entire country was on fire and ABC was the heart and soul coverage, even saving lives. The continual destruction of ABC is the deliberate erosion of our community. It's poisonous policy.

The ABC plans to make its national head of emergency broadcasting redundant following a deadly fire season during which Australians credited the organisation with saving lives

When you hear some politicians claim the ABC doesn't care about regional Australia, remember the facts: no media organisation does more to cover the whole country than the ABC. Don't take my word - here's the late National Party leader & champion for regional Aust Tim Fischer.

Oh my lord... the 2018 ‘Efficiency Review’ into the ABC and SBS- leaked to papers but, I believe, not publicly released until now - calls for *MORE* funding.

The Federal Government is, slowly and piece by piece, ripping the heart out of Australia's national broadcaster - and the country's most trusted media institution. What effect has that already had on our democracy? What effect will it have in the future?

In light of 's "there are no cuts" remark today, worth noting that the ABC's lost $783m - 3/4 of a billion dollars - in funding since the Coalition came to power. That's despite 's election-eve promise that there would be "no cuts" to the ABC.

Please tell that to the two talented journalists in my unit that are losing their jobs ... and the 248 other ABC staff also losing their jobs.

Cutting the 7.45am news bulletin is devastating. As is cutting half of the staff at which is full of brilliant young journos. One of the worst cuts is the 25% reduction to the ABC's travel budget which will make it much harder to cover this vast country

Our defamation laws are not built to let stories like this one through. I am in awe.
