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

    I am furious that there may be even more cuts to our precious ABC.

    A pox on all conservative politicians in Australia.

    Dave Sharma, you appear to be much too decent to be a member of our reactionary Liberal Party.

    Only people scared of the truth would seek to denigrate and destroy the ABC. It is a national treasure and should be generously funded by Australians for Australians in perpetuity.

    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 !!!
