The ABC is out of touch

September 06, 2018

A recent flood of complaints against the ABC has prompted the Conservative Party's South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert to repeat the party's call to rein in the broadcaster. 

During last month's Liberal leadership spill ABC TV's flagship 7.30 program's idea of balance was to have two moderate Liberals, former Minister Amanda Vanstone and former Leader John Hewson, attacking the conservative wing of the party.

Apart from a patent lack of balance in ABC TV, radio and online reporting there have been a number of instances where even complaints from the Communications Minister have been met with a "no guidelines were breached" response from ABC Managing Director Michelle Guthrie who has refused to apologise.

Mr Lambert has told Andrew Reimer on Adelaide radio station FIVEaa, Conservative Party policy is very clear in respect of the ABC: Consolidate it with SBS, limit it to two national TV networks covering news, current affairs, drama and entertainment and two national radio networks and limit its online service provision and presence. 

The move would save taxpayers more than $1 billion per year.
