Today Eastley gave Climate Commissioner Lesley Hughes a very soft interview on AM (see Health imperilled by climate change: Report).
ABC's new Editorial Guidelines no longer mention the phrase "conflict of interest". However section 1.3 of the new guidelines state:
1.3 Ensure that editorial decisions are not improperly influenced by political, sectional, commercial or personal interests.
On face value it appears Mr Eastley's interview puts him in breach of this clause. We have asked the ABC for an explanation.
