Did the ABC broadcast that cricket match screamer, where the commentator remarked that "the batsman is Holding, the bowler's Willey " The mental images that must have evoked, is probably why many are voting "NO"

They would have had that commentary which was from the BBC. The commentator was the late Brian Johnston.

lateline axed.

can aanyone argue? Alberici just covered the same topics and people as insiders, the drum and the 7:30 report did.

she was probably on 280k a year to reheat topics that have been done to death on other programs.

thats waste, and a good call to rissole the program.

ClapShe is/was a shockingly biased bigot!

Now we just need to get rid of insiders, the drum and the 7:30 report ... and any other news/current affairs programs.

I do like Dr Blake and Miss Fisher!

I think it shameful that they are dumbing down the ABC to your level.

There is a place for you already on Sky.

Leave the ABC alone

You complain about wasteful govt spending. yet seemingly happy to pay alberici 280k a year to be the abc microwave oven at 9:30pm, 5 days a week.

i dont like the gutting of the abc in general, but this decision cannot be argued. no one was watching it anyway. even the guardian says its hard to argue the decision.

So because you dont like Emma Albirici, the whole show should be scrapped?

Lateline provides a service that puts the spotlight on and discusses serious topics. It has a vital place

I dont particularly like alberici, but where have i shown in my posts that my agreement to the shows axing was based on a personal objection to her??

you are making sh*t up yet again and going off course.

her show was reheated stuff ....which lots of times you would have watched on those 3 other shows that were aired before her sh*t show. maybe 10 mins of the show was dedicated to other content.

if it has a vital place...many viewers wouldnt have left it in droves. its ratings have plummeted.

Your ABC/SBS is already a vacuum for you and your Marxist mates PT ... I'm just sick of footing the bill ... but that's communism I suppose!Wink

Australia will wake up to it soon, ironically, thanks to the awareness that modern day "wall to wall" media provides!Big smile 

... it's like this SSM debate ... a great exercise in education for the population!

No matter the final numbers (remember it was 76% in favor, and just a waste of time!LOL), the people who were blissfully unaware of all of the "Slippery Slope" connotations, are now well informed - ironically, having been exposed to reality by the intolerant abusive elitist Marxist freaks and geeks who tried to prosecute the "Love is Love" case, but just couldn't help letting their horns show!Embarrassed  

With a little luck, it might just be enough to ensure that the citizens will be enlightened enough to speak out, and even if SSM is allowed, all of the Marxist trappings are rejected ... just maybe we can stop our society from slipping too far down the sh*tter ... that would be a favourable result wouldn't it PT?

Sorry, I just thought that both your posts today criticizing her and her salary as well as a recent criticism of her being ''a megaphone for gay marriage''(your no 1 pet obsession)might have had something to do with your position

Exactly doc...the 120 mill is money extremely well spent.

turnbull has conducted a nation wide, education and awareness program of cultural marxism. a program that has lasted months.

he could have spent double that and id still salute him 🍷

I think you have hit most points that RWNJ politicians use to shut down the ABC and PBS and BBC 

We need more spotlight on these crooks these days than less

If you can explain how subsidising FAKE NEWS is saving our economy, I'll subsidise your punting for a year max!LOL 

(I'll probably get a positive ROI on that, unlike investing in Pink Batts and School Halls!Wink)

How many billion a year do we subsidize fossil fuels to hold us back with Tones in the 19th century?

The decline of journalism is alarming, it does not augur well when independent and reliable reportage is contracting. But arguably a few at the ABC have dropped the ball, where objectivity is concerned, becoming mouthpieces for minority interests, at the expense of mainstream concerns.

Blah blah blah ... the cat is out of the bag PT!

Renewables are subsidised at a hugely inflated rate, considering what they put into the grid ... you know it, everyone knows it, plus the money all goes off shore anyway!

Why are AGL, turning their back on coal ... wouldn't be for lovely, guaranteed, government $$$$$$$'s would it? Embarrassed

Some at the ABC appear to have adopted the attitude they have to peddle the contrary of Murdoch's biases, and in doing so generated their own brand of rubbish. It doesn't follow that if some of the Murdoch offering is trash, it all is.

Have a look at social media while those programs are on When you have equal numbers of people claiming they are leftie or right stooges, they are doing it pretty right. Chris Uhlmann(I think ) recently wrote an article about him being bemused and frustrated at being  left and right at the same time
