Oh dear god no...

From The Age:
KEITH Windschuttle, a leading protagonist in the history and culture wars, has been appointed to the ABC board, further beefing up its right-wing credentials.
I think I am going to vomit on my keyboard. What can we do about this? This country is going to shit... Would a petition help, do you think? No, me neither. But there must be something...

Catherine,

At first, I agreed.

But ask youself this: The Howard govt has been stacking the ABC board with conservatives for a decade. What difference has it made??

The Board's functions are limited, and I believe that their main function is the appointment of a managing director. Which they've already done!!

As a statement of intent, it's provocative. But I'm not sure he'll have much of an affect.
