The ABC news in Western Australia seems to be lacking markedly in its knowledge of things Australian.
ABC (WA) news bloopers seems to be increasing.
Following a reference to the national airline, QANTAS, as the “flying Australian” (it’s the flying kangaroo) on TV two nights ago, in today’s online news, and presumably on air, the ABC referred to the Royal (sic) Australian Army (it’s the Australian Army). However, I’m sure Her Majesty wouldn’t mind.
If part of news’ job is to educate people, I’m afraid the ABC’s reporters and sub editors are starting to fail badly.
