The fight is on to defend the ABC.
The local branch of Friends of the ABC meets this Saturday 14 December at Bangalow Bowlo at 1pm.
Be there to add your voice of support for the ABC in the face of last week’s calls by Abbott government members for radical budget cuts to the ABC.
Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi has suggested, ‘we could perhaps cut the ABC budget and allow the commercial media operators to compete’. Meaning Rupert Murdoch.
Members of the government do not like the ABC’s reporting on refugee matters, our spying on the Indonesian president exposés and that our national intelligence agency under the Howard/Downer government illegally bugged the offices of the East Timorese government on behalf of oil and gas giant, Woodside Petroleum.
