Mocking the ABC

In Australia there have been calls for ABC to correct their news stories saying that Tony Abbot caused the riot that necessitated Julia Gillard being rescued by Police after her own staffer misrepresented what Abbot said.

The ABC has published a defence of their article that only TVNZ could possibly beat for utter hypocrisy:

What is true is that Mr Abbott’s comments sparked the demonstration perhaps because they had been misrepresented or exaggerated. In that sense it is accurate to say that they “were enraged by remarks Mr Abbott had made”.

Well that has created an online backlash of people using photoshop to mock the ABC about their truthiness:

    It reminds me of Gordon Brown’s famous quote: “I take full responsibility for what happened, that’s why the person who was responsible went immediately”.
