The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has released a report on its coverage of the 2004 Federal Election.

The Chairman of the Election Coverage Review Committee, Murray Green, said: “It was unprecedented, to my knowledge in ABC federal election coverage that, for the 2004 campaign, no written complaints were received from the campaign headquarters of any party.”

The report says the ABC received 993 complaints from listeners and viewers, compared to 1542 in the 2001 election.
