Megan Davis blasts the ABC in deleted tweet for platforming Voice No campaigners
Professor Megan Davis’ claims suggesting that the ABC was favouring the No campaign against the Voice doesn’t “stack up,” according to The Australian’s National Editor Dennis Shanahan.
In a now-deleted tweet, Uluru Statement co-author Professor Davis blasted the national broadcaster for giving a platform to No campaigners.
Professor Davis said: “It’s astonishing to me that the ABC Insiders show has Warren Mundine on this morning. Jacinta at NPC, Kerrynne Liddle on 7.30 report. The schemozzle of 4 Corners. ABC just continually platforms the NO campaign.”
“This is very much in the eye of the beholder thing, and Megan Davis herself is another example of somebody who is saying things during a hyper-politicised campaign and isn’t experiencing it,” Mr Shanahan told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“It’s interesting to see she deleted the tweets because A, they didn’t stack up, but it’s also counterproductive for the Yes campaign to be attacking the ABC.”
