July 21, 2021 | Jamie Hyams

Such groups only prolong the conflict, because by convincing the PA that its demonisation strategy is working, they encourage Palestinian intransigence.

Aunty’s complaints process is an absolute farce

July 1, 2021 | Allon Lee

In the best tradition of protecting its paymasters, the response to AIJAC’s complaint by the ABC complaints unit – aka Audience & Consumer Affairs (A&CA) – finding that the May 27 episode of Q&A did not breach the ABC Code of Practice’s “impartiality standard” proved yet again why a genuinely independent complaints system is long overdue.
