Mr Abbottwent on to say that the ABC ‘seemed to delight in broadcasting allegations of a traitor’. The Prime Minister added: ‘the ABC did not just report what he said, they took the lead in advertising what he said’. The Prime Minister further reflected: ‘you would like the national broadcaster to have at least some affection for the home team’ (Prime Minister of Australia transcript 29 January 2014).
