Media Unmade - Chapter 12: Haters Gonna Hate
In which the ABC loses both its managing director and chairman in a few catastrophic days in 2018
Welcome to the latest edition of the Unmade podcast. Today’s edition features another extract from the audio edition of my book, Media Unmade, which is published by Hardie Grant and available online and in book stores.
This particular edition is for paying subscribers only.
We’ve reached the point in the story where we find the ABC at its lowest ebb.

After the board concluded that she was not up to the job, she went down with all guns blazing, taking chair Justine Milne with her.
The ABC is yet to fully bounce back.
