ABC managing director Mark Scott protects the inner-suburban friends of the ABC and once again regional Australia is abandoned like an old TV left on the roadside by a city person with no respect for the country, by targeting regional areas of the ABC for cuts.
Clearly he is being deliberately spiteful against the government at the cost of the nation. The government has to look at ways to address this and it might be that it needs to split the ABC and create a special, independent, regional ABC; it might be that the whiteboard needs to be wiped clean and a whole new ABC drawn up.
The government has the time: split the ABC now and appoint a new managing director for a regional ABC to protect it from selfish inner-suburbanites who have too much already to indulge themselves with.
