Protect our ABC

A healthy independent and comprehensive national public broadcaster is critical to Australian democracy and culture. The ABC’s independence – from political and commercial influence – enables it to report without fear or favour. The ABC’s responsibilities are to promote Australian culture and, as a comprehensive broadcaster, to cater for a diversity of interests in the community. Importantly, it broadcasts programs to other countries that encourage awareness of Australia.

In modern times, media is the gateway to information. It determines what the public will and will not know about all range of matters. Television, in particular, has a significant influence on our culture.
