Yes, architect Megan Davis explodes that the ABC isn’t biased enough – before embarrassing pushback
A key architect of Voice to Parliament has criticized the ABC for presenting a platform to leaders of the No campaign.
Professor Megan Davis shared on Twitter her outrage that David Speers did not interview any Warren Mundine campaigner on ABC’s Insiders program, in a tweet that has since been deleted.
“It’s amazing to me that ABC Insiders is featuring WARREN MUNDINE this morning,” she posted, according to The Australian.

“ABC is just continually launching the NO campaign. #Initiates.
Liberal Senator Liddle appeared on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in a segment led by Speers.
On Thursday, the ABC also broadcast Indigenous opposition spokesperson Jacinta Nampijinpa Price’s speech at the National Press Club in Canberra.
Professor Davis left other tweets criticizing Insiders and its host David Speers.
“The Voice will focus on what is urgent for the crowd. He will likely perform on running water (which Jacinta thinks Indigenous communities have) and not Australia Day (which Mundine says should be changed). The “no” is clearly not in contact with the communities. #insiders,” she wrote.
Warren Mundine (pictured) himself clearly had a problem with his interview with Speers, after saying on Twitter that the Insiders host had “selectively cited” an article he wrote almost years ago ten years.
She also retweeted calls for the ABC news director to be investigated.
“ABC’s blatant and obvious campaign against YES is worrying,” read a tweet from Ash Leahy.
“There is an obvious editorial directive here. MD and the news director need to be questioned.”
Mr Mundine himself clearly had a problem with his interview with Speers, after saying on Twitter that the Insiders host had “selectively cited” an article he wrote almost a decade ago .
“Read it for yourself,” he wrote.
“I don’t believe that history locks Aboriginal people into a disadvantageous situation. I believe that indigenous peoples can move forward and that economic participation is key.
