This highly-regarded, multiple award-winning journalist has at one time reported for or led ABC TV’s principle current affairs programs.

He is one journalist who, on Q&A at least, is perceived by some to be biased against the federal Labor government. [See: Analysis of Q&A by Independent Australia’s managing editor David Donovan (published March 12, 2012) http://bit.ly/NUesQv]
