ABC cuts: Tony Abbott’s pledge regrets

The ABC in the firing line – sins in the eye of the beholder

Andrew Greene (ABC News 25.11.14) writes that Malcolm Turnbull has suggested that the ABC had a ‘political bargain’ with Labor to maintain its funding in order to have ‘peace at the industrial front at the ABC’. An ABC spokesman responded: ‘The ABC is an independent public broadcaster. It seeks appropriate funding from all Governments and makes political bargains with none’.
