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

    Sick and tired of politicians who seem to think that once they are voted in – can follow their own agenda – I grew up with the ABC as part of my life, both radio & TV and now online, I want the ABC to stay in public hands – not sold to some bastard who will manipulate the running to suit themselves !!!

    The ABC has such a presence in our home. So attuned to local news, enjoyable chat shows, and when we are travelling Australia, so much to hear about local areas. Richard Fidler, Macca, Country Hour and our Sunshine Coast station all have so much to offer. Please don’t sell them off!!

    The ABC is one of our if not the most reliable source of news and we need to know the truth to be able to vote and lobby responsibly.
