ACMA complaint about the Bolt report

Alan Shore is making a complaint to ACMA about Andrew Bolt’s July 10 editorial on the Bolt report and is seeking feedback on the draft below. His original complaint to Network Ten is here and their response is here.

Andrew Bolt has been held liable of violating the Racial Discrimination Act for writing two columns intended to offend and humiliate several people because they were Aboriginal. Bolt lost because his writing was not done reasonably and in good faith, which we know is characteristic of his work in other areas as well. The judgement…

Earlier I wrote: Shortly after she got the death threat, [Anna-Maria] Arabia was attacked by Andrew Bolt. This was wrong. Although Bolt’s post was date stamped 11:16am, which was after Arabia received the threat, the first comment was at 6:39am so Bolt’s [ost appeared then. There was also a 7:56am comment at Pure Poison referencing…

Rosslyn Beeby at The Canberra Times follows up her earlier story: (Hat tip Dave McRae): Two of the most shocking cases involved young women who have had little media experience or exposure.

Said claim comes not from a scientist but from Ann Coulter, a creationist. PZ…

Andrew Bolt writes Question: why do people who think their government and scientists would always lie about nuclear power also think green groups would always tell the truth? How can you be so cynical about the one and so gullible with the other? Why do people who think their government and scientists lie about climate…

Andrew Bolt is desperate to prove that the floods in Queensland had nothing to do with global warming, even though the science suggests that warming will make floods worse. So has fully embraced an argument advanced by hauntingthelibrary: If warming caused these floods, why didn’t warmists predict them? Two years ago Queensland’s warmist Office of…
