Ex 7:30 host Quentin Dempster has a piece the Weekend Australian. The closing line reads...
Now is the time for all Australians who value a non-commercial,
taxpayer-funded, mainstream, free, independent public broadcasting
system to stand up and fight for it.
People would value it more if those that wanted it, paid for it! Rather than indiscriminately leeching off everyone ABC should be funded on a subscription basis. ABC is another form of middle class welfare. When will we get the same subsidy for our pay TV subscription?
