Last week activist group Getup! released a "Love Story" video to its supporters to change the definition of marriage. The video was uploaded on the ABC's The Drum website and editorialised with the words "A lovely bit of video making. A self-evidently righteous and reasonable cause".
Do you think this is balanced reporting?Is this worth writing a complaint
The ACL has many opportunities to speak to ABC presenters and reporters, including as recently as this morning when Queensland Director Wendy Francis' spoke to ABC 612's Spencer Howsen about why the Queensland Civil Partnerships Bill 2011 should not be passed. See here
However, The Drum's promotion of the video and subsequent editorial is, in our view, a blatant attempt to promote same-sex marriage and discouraging public debate and free speech on the issue.
