‘There will be job losses’: ABC managing director confirms staff to go following budget freeze – Politics – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Two men and a woman wearing formal clothing sit in front of microphones in a wood panelled room.

LNP have been slashing the ABC funding for the past 6 years never promised at an election and always called something other than what it is. Death of the ABC  will be the death of Democracy in Australia and the growth of Murdoch media whose profits are heavily entrenched supporting those that will have the money to pay at elections. $90 million vs $18 million tells the tale of modern politics and the media. A David and Goliath tale where Goliath has had his achillies cut and tongue cut out. (ODT)

Key points:

Mr Anderson did not say how many staff or from where in the ABC the jobs would be cut
He told Senate Estimates consideration would be given to keeping regional and remote jobs
The Government has frozen the ABC’s budget for three years, at a cost of $83.7 million
