The ABC spent yesterday agonising over how it allowed a convicted criminal and extremist sympathiser, Zaky Mallah, to attend and contribute to Monday night’s episode of Q&A. (If you’ve been under a rock all day and haven’t caught up, details here.)
The agony isn’t going to be contained to a 24-hour news cycle, with this powerful front page hitting Queensland newsstands – and probably a large proportion of the internet – today.
It shows a black-clad militant carrying a black flag – typical ISIS style – but the flag is emblazoned with, of all things, the ABC’s logo. Brand damage, much?
Courier-Mail editor Chris Dore tweeted the pic last night:
