ABC 2004 Election Coverage Review Released

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has released a review of its 2004 election coverage.

In a statement releasing the report by Murray Green, the ABC says: “The ABC covered the Federal Election on television, radio and online with some 170 separate editorial teams in capital cities and in regional and rural Australia. These teams range from sole reporters in remote locations to the editorial staff of ABC local radio in capital cities, to national teams, in programs such as the 7.30 Report, as well as online journalists for abc.net.au. Covering a federal election is the most extensive single editorial project undertaken by the ABC.”

The review says the ABC received complaints from 993 listeners and viewers about its election coverage. The complaints came by telephone, email and letters. In the 2001 federal election, 1542 contacts were received.
