    1. How do I join Friends of the ABC in Queensland?

    2. I am concerned as to the sensationalizing of news and current affairs on the ABC, from whom one might expect a better approach. Now, they are beginning to put words into the mouth of people being interviewed. Strangely, the words are exaggerated, and often, the interviewee is disinclined to offer an amendment because of his/her situation (in an unfamiliar position). Do other “Friends” feel the same way? Several of my friends do so.
    3. Although I have no interest in the religion, I was quite unhappy at the treatment by the religious affairs presenter recently of the British Buddhist lady who was in Australia to protest against the Dali Lama.

    I should have made these complaints to the ABC, but it was very difficult to find an email address in their complaints page.
