Is the current ALP government even genuinely intrested in strengthening our Democracy and returning the ABC to be the Independant Statutory body it was originally designed to be? Emphasis on Independant and not the victim of a cabal as it has been of the previous government Abbott’s and Morrison’s LNP, the IPA, and Murdoch ,Costello, and Stokes Media all competing for the wealth of the minority interests not even necessarily Australian.
Bottom line, the organisation continues to lose talent. Hence the ongoing threat of strike action and the recent efforts by ABC Alumni to lobby the government and crossbenchers to do more to undo the damage of a decade of cuts.
“We need the current government to help the ABC rebuild,” says Dempster.
