Fast Buck$, Coorabell

I’m a fan of the ABC so I’m a bit disappointed that the local ABC radio station has declined to give me a tape of their interviews with Duncan Dey and Sarah Ndiaye even though I was the main subject of discussion both times, and therefore have a right to know what was said of me.

Reason? ‘We cannot provide a copy to you… in line with the ABC’s editorial policy of maintaining independence’.

Deary me; the world really has gone mad. Nor have they confirmed or denied that Sarah Ndiaye was once employed there as an announcer.

Obviously, these tapes are important to my upcoming legal cases, meaning that they’ll have no choice but to hand them over under subpoena further down the track.
