When will the ABC stop promoting Murdoch?

The following email we just sent to ABC Coast FM is self explanatory:


We are regular listeners to the station and enjoy your musical selections and local coverage.

This is not a complaint, just a question and a point: Today you referred listeners to "news.com.au" and promoted the comments about the $90Million Lotto prize. Isn't that kind of product placement or promotion of the News Limited website in breach, or very close to a breach, of the ABC Act or editorial code of conduct?

Just for clarity, we believe the Murdoch media to be a very dangerous and unnaccountable blight on our democracy, society and journalism.

We look forward to your response for OUR website (feel free to refer your listeners to it, if there is in fact no problem with such references):
