Michelle Guthrie’s sudden ABC exit and the Morrison / Murdoch connection

It certainly doesn’t sound as though there had been discussions over several months which also included the managing director. Indeed, if a ‘long and detailed consideration of the matter’ had been underway, Guthrie being sacked without a succession plan already in place seems to back up her version of events. What was the ABC Board discussing – without the MD – if not who would replace her?

That her departure from the ABC was first “exclusively” reported by The Australian, apparently, before the ABC newsrooms had had their morning coffees, would also indicate that only the ABC Board (minus its MD), the Government and possibly News Corp were aware of the sudden need to fire Guthrie.
