ABC caught breaching policy with Yes campaign ad! Says it was a “mistake”

ABC have confirmed that it breached its own policies when the government funded media organisation provided archival footage to the “Yes” Campaign for their recent referendum commercial.

“This was done in error as it does not meet our policy on the use of ABC archival footage and is regrettable,” an ABC spokesperson said to The Guardian newspaper.

However the ABC policies around this matter clearly states that “political advertising or political messaging will be requested to immediately remove the ABC material, including from social networks or websites.”

Why is the ABC now trying to brush this story aside as if it was just an innocent mistake, and not following through on its strict policies?
