FORMER Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Snootypantsman has slammed the ABC for using too many white-skinned leftists to present its news and current affairs programs.
“There will be no diversity on the ABC until journalists of every shade are presenting news from a far left-leaning perspective.”
The anti-racism campaigner complained that the tax-payer funded ABC could not represent the broader community while every leftist host had a pale face.
And he said it was difficult to defend the ABC against charges of political bias when everyone pushing the collectivist point of view was fair-skinned.
“How can the ABC claim to provide balanced reporting when everyone promoting the same socialist agenda is of English descent?
Where are the brown skinned Marxists? And why aren’t we showing exotic-looking, really dark skinned progressives on the ABC? It’s not enough to talk about diversity, we need to see it!”
Mr Soutracehustler said the ABC needed to provide the public with a wide variety of views.
“People need to be able to view Asians and view Islanders and view Africans all saying the same woke things.
Shows like Q&A and The Drum should have panelists who are diverse like a packet of M&Ms – lots of colours and all with the same flavour.”
Mr Soutrelevancedepravation, who said he was committed to providing a skin-deep critique of Australian culture despite having finished his role at the Human Rights Commission, insisted that it was important the ABC represent Australia’s pluralistic society with a plurality of faces.
“There is a real danger that when everyone in the newsroom is white that you do start to suffer from group face.
When everyone’s looking the same, no-one’s looking different and I think that’s the problem at the ABC.”
The racial equality campaigner said the ABC’s diversity problem was not confined to its flagship television programs.
He said it was a national shame that ABC radio presenters used the same broad Australian accent to push progressive ideas.
“Every ABC personality sounds exactly the same. And that’s not good for democracy. We need to hear lots of different voices. Why aren’t we hearing about the climate emergency from someone with an Asian accent? Or that Trump is Hitler from someone who sounds Mexican?”
Mr Soutlaughingmyassoff said it did not matter that foreign accents might make it difficult for listeners to understand ABC news and political commentary since “everyone already knows exactly what they are going to say”.
