While promising on the 7:30 Report that Fair Work Australia will not be a retirement home for trade unionists, Kevin Rudd further pledged to remove the political bias on the ABC board by instituting a transparent appointments process. (ABC 7:30 Report video – seek to 5:49 for Rudd’s ABC Board comments)

Bravo, Kevvo.

Like Amounda, will Howard’s ABC board wonks, Windschuttle, Brunton and Albrechtsen soon become Australian ambassadors? I’d like to nominate Windschuttle to be Ambassador to the Australian Aboriginal Nations; Albrechtsen would be right at home in Saudi Arabia. Brunton would surely benefit from a few decades of immersion in communist Chinese political culture.

I want my ABC back. If Labor is elected, that might just happen.

Could Rudd be persuaded to get the damn ads off of SBS, too?
