ABC to be ‘transparent’ under One Nation deal

ABC to be ‘transparent’ under One Nation deal, by Rosie Lewis.

The Turnbull government has clinched a deal with One Nation over its media reform package that will force the ABC to be more transparent about staff wages and “fair” and “balanced” in its reporting.

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson said her party had offered the government “conditional support” in exchange for a trifecta of sweeteners, including the ABC changes, greater community radio funding and foreign ownership reporting.

Like any organization taken over by ideologues, the ABC cannot be reformed, only abolished.
