ABC INDEPENDENCE BIGGEST WORRY: SURVEY

A compelling report from the Sydney Morning Herald.

When Labor was in power, Aussie TV viewers had a prosaic list of gripes: shows that started and finished late (or disappeared mid-season) and incorrect program guides. But during Tony Abbott’s prime ministership, a bigger concern emerged: keeping our public broadcasters free of government influence.

At least, that’s what TV Tonight’s audience survey respondents say. And for the second year running, they’ve nominated the independence of ABC and SBS as their greatest worry.
