The ABC has lost credibility reporting on the Queensland election after its state political reporter smeared Deb Frecklington as a racist on Twitter, according to Sky News Digital Editor Jack Houghton.

Mr Houghton said the Tweet – which was later deleted – was the second example in as many weeks of the ABC having to explain why journalists are tweeting biased content.

“This week, the ABC’s Queensland state political reporter Stephanie Zillman reporting on Twitter that Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Freklington’s youth curfew plan in Townsville was ‘dog whistling’ – a term used to suggest a person is using coded language that is secretly racist,” Mr Houghton said.

“ABC Twitter commentators masquerading as journalists have been warned to break free of their ideological, inner-city bubble and start shaping news content for the everyday Australian,” Mr Houghton said.

“ABC News Director Gaven Morris sparked outrage among many of Aunty’s finest reporters for telling them something conservative viewers have known all of their lives.

"ABC journalists are too focused on the interests of “inner city left-wing elites" and don’t spend enough time listening to the concerns of real people living in places such as central Queensland.

“It was a great scoop by the Sydney Morning Herald – which spoke to three ABC journalists present in the staff briefing where Morris vented his frustrations.”
