The use of the concept of the "hip pocket" to guide decisions about what journalism gets produced
Saul Rosenberg made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Dear Australian Broadcasting Corporation,
I am writing to request any documents that would shed light on how the concept of the "hip pocket" may be being used to assist in making choices about how journalistic resources should be distributed, and what should be reported on.
The SMH reported 4 years ago that an internal review found that ABC journalists should pay more attention to economic and "hip pocket" issues and average australians. My request is for any available documents that might detail how this concept operates at the editorial level.
Dear Mr Rosenberg

If so, would you be able to nominate a timeframe that applies to this request, such as documents from 2018? Please note that our Editorial Policies are published online, and this topic is not specified in same.
