Liberal 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.
The motion is non-binding, meaning it is unlikely to have any impact on the Government's policies. But the motions do provide an insight into the internal machinations of the party. Cabinet Minister Mathias Cormann said the Government had been very clear about the broadcaster's future.
Mr Shorten argued Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will come under immense pressure to go further, if he wins the next election. If he gets another chance as prime minister after an election the Liberal Party will be emboldened and they will sell off. Mr Shorten denied he had a similar problem with his party's Victorian members from the left wing, who want Labor to abandon its policy to maintain offshore processing of refugees and asylum seekers.

Online news media is plentiful with every variety of opinion readily accessible.
The ABC justifies its size and expense by giving itself greater responsibilities and ignoring the existence of an effective commercial media industry. Takenaka argued that NHK duplicated its own services as well as those of more efficient private networks more than capable of providing the services of the NHK at reduced cost.
Essentially the ABC as it is now but self-financing. One would be a publically funded broadcaster i. The commercial network could be retained by the government as a potential revenue source or could be fully privatised as a publically traded company. The ABC Act notably declares its duties include: Savings from purchases of foreign content, online news and a redundant 24 hour news channel would mean a smaller and economical public broadcaster.
This would also free up resources for the production of Australian programming as well as regional radio services that have been cut back on in recent years. The merits of a privatised ABC may just be a more Australian national broadcaster. Marian Tomsey.
