Bill Shorten says an election victory would 'embolden' the Liberals to privatise the ABC
user posted image

iberal members will be "emboldened" to sell the ABC if the party wins the next election, federal Labor is warning.

The Opposition has leapt on calls from Liberal Party members for the national broadcaster to be privatised, except in regional areas.

Senior government ministers are rushing to deny the Coalition has plans to sell the ABC, despite the motion passing overwhelmingly at the Liberal national conference this weekend.
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-17/bill-shorten-says-liberals-will-sell-off-the-abc/9878614

I can see that trying to sell the ABC would be almost impossible as a going concern. There is no business or profit margins for any prospective buyer to consider.
No Intellectual value in a totally government subsidised entity.
The only value would be in equipment and real estate.

Who is going to buy something that cost the owner $1,036.5 million a year?

Idiots.

Close the door and have a fire sale.

It would appear that FDNC's Bill isn't the only Bill with a dodgy crystal ball!! http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

Labor must have owned the ABC for some time now http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif - if not why is the ABC so left bias? http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

No wonder BS's ratings as so low - I still say that Anthony Albanese would make a far better leader, as long as Billy BS is the leader of the ALP TB will remain the so called 'preferred PM' - we have such an imperceptible choice when it comes to self-serving politicians.

The same can be said for our defunct media!

Bill Shorten is wrong about this.

The last thing that the LNP would want is a privatized ABC able to raise income through advertising and subscription services. There is not one media organization in Australia that turns a profit due to falling advertising revenue.

The ABC has the largest infrastructure base and the best digital platform in the country. Give them access to advertising revenue and a subscription service and it would be the final nail in the coffin for commercial media.

Murdoch doesn't want to see the ABC 'privatised' - he wants to see it destroyed as a competitor.
