A Petition Calling on the Government to appoint an Independent Umpire over the ABC.

A Petition Calling on the Government to appoint an Independent Umpire over the ABC.

 


We, the undersigned: 

- Noting the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s appalling breach of its own Charter and community expectations in the coverage of the Coronation of King Charles III by what is, after all, the taxpayer-funded national broadcaster;

- Noting the expressed massive public outrage at the ABC’s coverage of the Coronation; and

- Noting the ABC’s high-handed and dismissive attitude to the thousands of complaints received over its coverage of the Coronation. 

HEREBY respectfully request the Australian Government to urgently amend the legislation pertaining to the ABC to ensure a truly independent ABC Ombudsman (or Inspector-General) is appointed to deal with the ever-growing number of complaints the ABC receives about its bias and general conduct.
