I am not sure I really like ABC's political editor Andrew Probyn. That kind of translates as being I don't always agree with him. But hey, he is first class presenter of political stories. It is hard to believe he has been sacked.
Along with some not so magical machinations with ABC's arts programming.
And the loss of Sunday state based evening tv news for a national news service. I know what that means from radio. It will mean Sydney news with a local Sydney car crash story and a filler from one of the states.
I have marched on the streets for Our ABC. I was a member of Friends of ABC. I've been to large public meetings to support our ABC. These were mostly against conservative attacks and defunding of Our ABC.
I have written letters and latterly sent emails to all and sundry to urge support for Our ABC.
But I am old and I know ABC needs to go down a digital path for the newer generations. However, I feel so disrespected by these aforesaid changes, especially the loss of our local news. If ABC TV gets away with this, there will be no end to cuts to ABC from within.
PS My next post from England is a long time in the making. Hopefully tomorrow.
