Most readers of this blog know the ABC is utterly corrupt to start with, mainly because its hiring policy deliberately discriminates against Conservatives.
This leads to a bigoted and narrow interpretation of any political event that might occur in Australia, and usually that interpretation disadvantages Conservatives and advantages Progressives.
Its a complete corruption of the ABC’s charter, but apparently nothing anyone can do anything about. The ABC, the largest propaganda force in Australia by far is the same untouchable political institution that has underpinned totalitarianism throughout history.
Of course Australia still has a democracy today, but it will not have it in the future if something is not done to control political corruption at the ABC.
I think the defeat of Tony Abbott as leader of the Liberal Party should be the trigger for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the ABC.
Why? Because Turnbull’s defeat of Abbott was in my opinion engineered by the ABC in order to ensure their funding levels were not further reduced.
Was there a meeting in some smokey backroom somewhere where this was decided, and a plan mapped out? I doubt it. Turnbull and the Progressives who control the ABC don’t need to involve themselves in such detailed planning because they all share the same mindset anyway. They just did it because they all think that way.
You’d have to be deaf dumb and blind not to acknowledge the growing intensity of the ABC’s attacks on Tony Abbott over the last year or more. Abbott had already cut their funding by $250 million, and there was a good chance it would be cut further. The Sydney Morning Herald reports today-
The ABC is preparing to begin negotiations with the government for its next three-year funding arrangement, due to be announced in next year’s budget. There is renewed hope within the broadcaster – buoyed by comments by new Communications Minister Mitch Fifield – that some extra funds may flow to the ABC following Mr Abbott’s removal.
So there you have it. The reason underpinning the ABC’s unprecedented attacks on a sitting and democratically elected Prime Minister. But there is more. From the same article, the Liberals have announced their surrender to the ABC.
The shift from Tony Abbott to Mr Turnbull represents a change at the top of the government from one of the Coalition’s biggest critics of the ABC to one of its biggest supporters.
“There will be no more culture wars,” a Liberal source said, flagging an end to the open hostilities between the government and the ABC during recent times.
It is disgraceful that a taxpayer funded broadcasting operation can blackmail and intimidate a democratically elected government in this way. There needs to be an inquiry into the ABC and its campaign to remove Tony Abbott as PM.
I suggest it involves a collection of broadcasts that clearly show their bias. There would be hundreds, but I would start with a comparison between interviews with Tony Abbot when PM and the recent 7:30 program’s interview with new PM Malcolm Turnbull. The antagonism towards Abbott is made even more clear by the sickly fawning over Turnbull.
If only there was a politician with the initiative and courage to process this matter. I am certain any fair and objective inquiry would show the absolute political corruption that riddles the ABC, and the outcome of such a finding should be its complete closure or at least a breaking up of its many branches and a selling off.
This matter should be given immediate priority. What is more important to Australia’s overall well being than the preservation of its democracy?
