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

    Why? The ABC is a wonderful institution, providing real, considered content for all Australians.

    The ABC serves and belongs to all of Australia, unlike our politicians.

    I live in regional NSW, without the wonderful service the ABC provides we would never have quality and truthful information…..as we can see from what the coalition government is doing to OUR ABC.

    I cannot imagine an Australia without RN, Triple J, Playschool, Australian story, Rage, Four Corners, Rake…. A gutless government who refuse to serve the interests of Australian citizens but more than happy to tick off every item on the corporate backed IPA wishlist.
