STATEMENT - ABC
26 September 2018
From time to time, I have raised factual errors in ABC reporting, but have always respected the legislated operational and editorial independence of the ABC.
I have never involved myself in staffing matters, nor am I aware of any member of the Government who has sought to do so.
The operations of the ABC are entirely matters for the board and management of the ABC which, by law, the Minister does not have a role in.
Questions about the ABC’s board and management are matters for the ABC.
