Is the ABC Drum a Government subsidized open forum for any radical with an Internet connection?
Antony Loewenstein seems to prove the case
Perhaps the scariest thing about the ABC Drum is its lack of moderation.
The Drum is a government paid open forum for anyone who has an Internet connection and 2 words to string together. Whether those words are coherent and logical never seems to matter, as long as they wallow in the ooze of eternal controversy and angst. As a result we have self-appointed experts, guru’s and sham self proclaimed human rights activists. The big world of self righteousness and hollow hypocrisy has found its new centre. The centre is clearly another government paid forum for anyone with an axe to grind. This is especially true of one of their prominent contributors called, Antony Loewenstein.
Not only does Antony have a personal vendetta against what he calls the Zionists, and what the rest of the world calls Israel, he has also has time to develop his hate mongering talents against Sri Lanka. When it comes to Sri Lanka it seems that Antony has a lot of hate to share. 21 articles condemning the Sri Lankan government (some with a strange Zionist bogyman twist) and nowhere is there any recognition that the LTTE were terrorists of the worst order.
The question is not how much hate can one person peddle?
Rather is Antony Loewenstein hoping to radicalize people with the hate that he is peddling?
It is merely a testament to the lack of common sense at the ABC Drum website. Why would any self respecting journalistic website, let alone a tax payer funded one, allow itself to be hijacked by such fanatics?
