Pauline Hanson has today called for the immediate closure of the ABC after claiming prolonged exposure to the broadcaster can give you autism.
Ms Hanson made the claim ironically on the ABC’s Lateline, clearly taking the risk of catching autism in order to get the message out there.
“This is a medically proven fact, I have facts and medicine right here in these papers that prove the ABC spreads autism,” Ms Hanson claimed last night.
“These documents also suggest that watching anything with Barry Cassidy in it will turn your testicles green.”
“The ABC has to be shutdown immediately.”
Far from dismissing Pauline Hanson’s claim, ABC CEO Michelle Guthrie appeared concerned when asked about the allegation this morning.
“Normally we don’t take anything Pauline says very seriously but she (Pauline) does look to have some kind of syndrome going on there and she was just appearing on the ABC – we might actually give these papers a closer look,” a worried Ms Guthrie told us.
