Wendy Bacon jokes that it will probably take an investigative journalist to uncover the real reasons behind her departure from ABC television before she ever really got there. But she believes there is no doubt that political interference came from the "very top of the ABC,. to ~top her joining The World Tomght, the ABC's new TV current affairs show. ''David Hill was overheard saying he did not want me at the ABC at any price, so whatever my qualifications as a journalist I would not have been appropriate for David Hill."
