ABC accused of publishing 'fake news' in bizarre Adani interview

Friday 23rd of December 2016 10:16:39 AM



The ABC has been accused of running “fake news” on its coverage of the Adani coal mine as said by a Turnbull government minister.

Resources and Northern Australia Minister Matt Canavan said the ABC's coverage of an Indian finance ministry probe into the Adani group was "nothing but fake news".

Interviewer Kim Landers tried eight times to get Senator Canavan, an ardent supporter of the coal mine, to address the Indian government's investigation into the company behind the controversial project.

But Senator Canavan instead offered a commentary on the view from his North Queensland house that "makes you thank God that you were born in Queensland".

He went on to accuse the ABC of treating regional Queensland like "flyover country".
