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

    It’s time commercial broadcasters came up to the standard set by the ABC,not complaining about programs achieved by them.

    The strength of a nation is not found in how much money it can extort from the population but in the depth and education of its population. The ABC is what i would label part of Australian cultural strength and attempts by the IPA in trying to get rid of this are very concerning and verging on the culpable!!
