Save Our ABC

On the eve of the 2013 election, the Liberals promised there would be “no cuts to the ABC”.

Yet on top of $254 million in cuts they have imposed since 2014, this Budget contains a further $83.7 million in cuts.

The Liberals gifted $30 million to Fox Sports and relieved commercial broadcasters of $90 million in spectrum license fees, yet they are imposing swinging cuts on the ABC.

This will only force further redundancies at the ABC.

Australians value the national broadcaster and rely on many of its services. Now more than ever, we need strong, trusted and independent public broadcasters.

That is why a Shorten Labor Government will reverse Turnbull’s $83.7 million unfair cut to the ABC, as well as guarantee funding certainty over the next ABC budget cycle

    The Liberal Government is afraid of an indepth and balanced news and documentary service. They will condone the bias and misinformation of the corporate press at the same time as make mean attacks on the ABC. there are even conservatives who are opposed to these brutal and mean cutbacks.

    The ABC is the single most important thing to my voting. We need more facts, more truth, less corporate ‘sponsorship’ of news. Less ads, and more Australia. Go ABC.

    Politicians please take note..The ABC is a respected Institution and needs to be independent to do its job. and needs to be funded and supported. Constant undermining of this important media organization is a blight on our democratic society. Hands off !

    At a time of fake news we need the trusted ABC more than ever. More cuts mean more dumbing down.

    Doing the bidding of Pauline Hanson and the IPA will have its consequences for this Government.
