ABC Board accuses Abbott of broken election promise

The Guardian (2.11.14) reports that in its annual report the ABC board has accused the Abbott goverment of breaking election promises by cutting the broadcaster’s budget. ‘”The full suite of service – radio, television and digital, both domestic and international – costs roughly $120 per household per year,” they said. … The board has also accused the government of cutting an additional “several million dollars” by stealth – on top of the 1% cut and the termination of the Australian Network contract.’
