Protect our ABC
The resignation of ABC Chairman Justin Milne has underlined the need for an independent inquiry into inappropriate political interference at the national broadcaster.
After strong public pressure, the Minister for Communication and Arts Mitch Fifield reluctantly decided to conduct his own inquiry which would report directly to him.
This is simply not good enough, we need a transparent and independent Senate inquiry, we are calling on Scott Morrison to establish an independent inquiry into the political interference at the ABC.
The ABC and its independence are a vital part of our democracy and deserves our full support
