October 24, 2016

(News.com.au) – THE ABC has come under fire for showing the final moments of Max Bromson’s life as the euthanasia advocate took a fatal dose of an illegal drug. After two years the tape of Max Bromson’s last moments has finally been made public as the family has been cleared of any wrong doing. The vision was shown on ABC’s 7.30 program. But Immigration Minister Peter Dutton accused the ABC of being “taken over” by political activists reported The Australian. Former prime minister Tony ­Abbott also criticised the media organisation saying they had engaged in “death voyeurism”.
