ABC chairwoman Ita Buttrose says it will pull the 4 November edition of ‘Q&A’ from its platforms, following a number of complaints about the program. Panellists on the program appeared to advocate arson, violence and extrajudicial killings, and ABC MD David Anderson says it will investigate whether the program breached the ABC’s editorial standards. The Australian Communications & Media Authority has so far received 53 complaints about the program.
