Webinar: Who Needs the ABC?

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Matthew Ricketson, co-author of Who Needs the ABC?’ Why Taking it for Granted is No Longer an Option in conversation.

For the past nine years, the ABC has been besieged. Its funding has been slashed. Its staffing levels have been cut. It has been assailed by complaints from ministers and prime ministers. Its board has been stacked with a succession of political appointees. It has been relentlessly attacked by commercial media outlets. And it has suffered crisis after crisis.

Who Needs the ABC? charts how the best-trusted news organisation in Australia arrived at its current predicament: doing the most it ever has, with less than it needs, under a barrage of constant criticism.

It is available from Scribe Publications – use the code ABC to get 25% off the RRP.
