Conservative Party policy is that ABC funding should be radically reduced and a root and branch reform of the ABC and SBS undertaken.
Grassroots conservatives want to reform the ABC because they know it is an enemy of conservative politics and they know it's not an unbiased presenter of news. In fact, the ABC is a cheerleader for particular causes and it's out of control.
The question also needs to be asked: "Why are taxpayers funding eight television channels and 10 radio networks?"
Conservative Party Victorian Senate candidate Kevin Bailey says while Conservatives supports the role of the ABC as a national broadcaster, especially its ability to be able to communicate with every Australian when necessary, what the ABC and SBS are currently costing taxpayers goes beyond the pale.
