People are fed up with the ABC and have moved to channels 7, 9 and 10 for a much more balanced news presentation.

Those stations news and current affairs are biased too of course. Difference being that they are not bound by law to be un-biased and they are not publicly funded. We aren't forced to pay for 7,9 and 10 but we are forced to pay for the Autonomous Bolshevik Collective.

And at least they were more honest. The Bolt report announced it's conservative credentials. The ABC hides it's political agenda and abuses it's power to violently attack the character of anyone who questions it's far left agendas.

No, they haven't.

The ABC is transferring their viewers to online platforms. Commercial media is just losing them.

Re: War on cash continues in MSM

So if they are not bound by law or publically funded, they can distort
the flow of information to suit their own interests and criminal intentions?
Purposely manlpulating elections to suit their rorts and for their financial  benefit?

Unlike the ABC they are not bound by law to be impartial. It isn't a moral issue, every news outlet is shaped by the agendas of the owners and senior editors of the outlet, possibly driven in part by the agendas of the advertisers as well.

The ABC is expected to hold to higher standards than the commercial stations and that includes giving air time to the conservative interests of the Australian taxpayer that funds the station and to this end that have abandoned any kind of impartiality and have no conservative programs, anchors or commentators on any of their stations.

Just like Gillian Triggs that have broken the cardinal rule and allowed themselves to politicise institutions that are bound by their charters to be impartial. It doesn't matter if those running the institutions feel that it is fine to ignore their charters because they think that they have a moral imperative, they are breaking the law.

Of course, as long as they don't ask taxpayers to fund their activities they can use the same strategies as the AWU.

You should read the last sentence in this post, http://forums.silverstackers.com/messag … ml#p966260, maybe then you'll have to redefine your idea of what constitutes "ugly".

I like how one of the main arguments is "it would help the banks funding ratios and reliance on offshore deposits".

Re: War on cash continues in MSM

More on the India crisis. There's a lot more to this than Indian bureaucratic inefficiency and bloody mindedness.

Interesting also to note that actual physical gold has jumped to U$3000.

The Chief Justice Thakur asked why the government has a problem in dispensing enough cash. "Is there any deficiency in Rs. 100 notes? They have not been demonetised. Why are they not been made available at least?" he asked.

The government acknowledged that there is a shortage of Rs. 100 notes as the now defunct Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes formed 80 per cent of the currency in circulation before November 8. "Rs. 100 notes are not available. Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes was over 80 per cent of the currency," Mr. Rohatgi owned up.

Mr. Rohatgi, at the same time, denied any "cash crunch". He submitted that there was only trouble dispensing the newly printed currency from the mints to all over the country — to post offices, ATMs, banks, etc.

The hearing started with Chief Justice Thakur asking how the government reduced the limit of exchange of currency from Rs. 4500 to Rs. 2000 again despite the Supreme Court asking the Centre to do its best to alleviate the hardship of the common man.

Mr. Rohatgi replied by saying that cash will be made available on swiping cards in petrol stations with State Bank of India cards. He said Rs. 2.5 lakh will be allowed for weddings and farmers will get Rs. 50000.

Mr. Sibal said: "people with Mercedes can afford to swipe their cards at petrol bunks, not farmers. Eight hundred crore people in this country earn less than Rs. 10000 a month. That is not black money. A family walked 20 km from Bastar to an ICICI bank branch."

Mr. Sibal said 23 lakh crore notes have to be printed and 14 lakh crore worth currency was frozen as from November 8. Only about nine lakh crore currency is in circulation.

Re: War on cash continues in MSM

And now catchy 80's pop song expert Bjorn Ulvaeus is jumping on the bandwagon

When Björn Ulvaeus, one time member of Swedish pop super group ABBA and custodian of the ABBA brand, found out his son's house had been burgled, he reasonably assumed the stolen goods would have landed in the lap of a local black market peddler, who likely paid cash for the ill-gained loot.

As Ulvaeus points out in an open letter to visitors at Stockholm's ABBA, The Museum, for the black market to operate, it needs cash.
Spurred on by the event, Ulvaeus has become one of the more prominent figures in Sweden espousing the benefits of a cashless future – where individuals use electronic payments for almost everything. Indeed, guests visiting ABBA, The Museum, can only pay by cashless means.
