Does the ABC, or the Murdoch or Fairfax press, or any other Australian news media outlet, for that matter, have a discernible political or philosophical bias? Is it possible for journalists to be truly objective: neutral, detached, and leaving every skerrick of his or her personal baggage behind? Bias, it seems, in the eye of the beholder. A panel of experts discuss perceptions of bias in the Australian media with Paul Barclay. Recorded at the Noosa Long Weekend Festival.
