THIS IGNORANT TOAD IS ON ANOTHER PLANET WITH OUR MONEY
... $800k pa of it!
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
The ABC’s Mark Scott’s pathetic attempt to defend the indefensible typifies all that’s shamefully traitorous with our national broadcaster... and this ex Fairfax, supercilious dog is the owner of the first head that should roll.
This pro Green/Labor, taxpayer-funded and owned broadcaster has refused to realign its inbred culture toward some semblance of objectivity. But it is clearly beyond reforming and must either be dismantled and reconstructed or disbanded.
Its staggering arrogance and incomprehensible incompetence is palpable and irreversible.
Mark Scott’s Aussie employers deserve to get what they pay for but he, and his coterie of Abbott-hating Lefties, has proved he has no intention of altering course.
He actually believes he has a God bestowed duty to convince the majority of Australians of their conservative folly but, like his appointers Rudd and Gillard, he is long past his use-by date and he simply doesn’t get it!
Mark Scott is at the vanguard of the far Left culture that has been allowed to fester at the ABC unchecked for decades and he believes his bloated retainer and yearly budget of $1.2 billion, is sacrosanct and sequestrated from government interference.
Let’s get one thing clear, Abbott’s 2014 “non-cut” to the ABC was five per cent over five years (or a barely noticeable one per cent per year) yet Scott retaliated by threatening staff cuts, reductions in regional services and talk of having to dump Bananas in Pyjamas and Pepper Pig.
In other words he was prepared to disadvantage the ABC’s children’s programming in order to hurt Abbott politically.
There was no thought of trimming the ABC staff's bloated retainers that make up half its entire budget. There was no thought of trimming his own obscene $800k pa. (more than twice the US President's wage) nor any of the luxurious benefits the ABC grants itself along with everything the cosseted Public Service has to offer.
Regrets over their paid terrorist segment on Q&A? Never! They actually had the audacity to replay it uncut. It was still running on their on-line pages 24 hours later... mind-boggling arrogance!
And they expect us to believe in the veracity of their own promised internal inquiry? Get the f**k out of here!
The ABC is immune from criticism as it over-imbibes on long lunches and endless business-class travel. It thumbs its collective noses at government and its inability to control its excesses.
It looks down from on high, ignoring its dispensable shareholders who pointlessly dare to question its motives.
It operates by its own royal decree from within the vacuum of a far Left Green bubble.
But Abbott and the vast majority of Australians have had enough, it’s past time this un-Australian, scandalous organisation was brought to account. And yes, heads must roll, despite Malcolm Turnbull’s affection for his promoters.
This will be a test of Abbott’s declared resolve. But aren’t ABC tenures inviolable?... well yes, they are, but Abbott has a card up his sleeve and he is in a unique position to use it right now.
He can do exactly what Greece did to its bloated national broadcaster... pull its funding.
