Andrew Bolt: Coverage of Don Dale and George Pell proves ABC bias is now a menace

TWO explosive ABC reports last week proved this biased state broadcaster is now a public menace.

First, the ABC falsely presented the restraint by detention staff of a violent youth as the torture of a near-innocent boy.

Next, it presented Australia’s top Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, as a sexual predator of children, based on the highly unreliable memories of people recalling ambiguous events more than 30 years old.

The consequences have been devastating.

In a knee-jerk response to the first report, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a royal commission into the Northern Territory’s juvenile justice system.

Activists are already exploiting this to turn attention from the deadly dysfunction of Aboriginal society — the most urgent problem — to the inflammatory excuse of white cruelty to black children.

In response to the second report, Pell’s church is being vilified just as it prepares to speak against the planned vote on same-sex marriage — the ABC’s great crusade.
