It’s like the publican asking the resident drunk to audit the pub.

THE ABC will undertake a series of sweeping reviews of its content after chairman Jim Spigelman conceded the public broadcaster needed to address allegations of bias and rebalance the airtime it gave to left-wing issues such as gay marriage, to focus more on mainstream concerns such as electricity pricing.
Saying the ABC needed to endeavour to engage all sections of the community and remain "important to all Australians", Mr Spigelman said he had been concerned since his appointment last year about the frequency of allegations of a lack of impartiality.
…The first audit is being prepared by a former British journalist and producer at the BBC, Andrea Wills, who has one year's experience at the ABC. She will assess the impartiality of all interviews of Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott on ABC radio during this year's election campaign, while a second audit is to consider the treatment of the debate about asylum-seekers.
Really? Spigelman must think the public are bunch of idiots.
I say again, it’s time to defund the ABC and commercialise its operations.
