Media Watch Under Scrutiny

Reblogged from Jennifer Marohasy

MEDIA Watch contacted me on Friday with a barrage of questions concerning my work on the need to restore the Murray River’s estuary. Their line of questioning suggested that I was misleading the Australian public on the important issue of water reform in the Murray Darling. Indeed, the implication was that I am but a stooge for vested interests.

UPDATE:  I have been informed by Media Watch that they will NOT be running their intended program tonight (“This item will not be on this week’s show”).  It would appear that the possibility of a defamation action coupled with a solid explanation of the science and history of the Lower Lakes has caused Media Watch to change their program.

Reading between the lines, one gets the impression that the ABC is unable to judge the quality of science and the conclusions drawn from it without knowing who funded the research.
