Hanson...El Presidente for life.
Get's to pick her successor- just what we need in a democracy. No wonder she is so popular with the Alt Right.

Angry Anderson is her successor?

Yes they are but it is worse than just that.

The Libs philosophical hatred of of government owned anything and everything coupled with Hanson's pathological hatred of the ABC because they ask her questions, has the ABC in real trouble. Add to that the commercial broadcasters insistence on a "level playing field" except when it doesn't advantage them..

I like this bit of the article. It is absolutely farcical to give Murdoch the $30M. It shows our government at it's best. Using our money to curry favour with powerful interests.
The $30m of government money given, apparently with few strings attached, to Foxtel last year was really just “compensation” for the fact that the commercial TV operators got a windfall gain with the abolition of their broadcast licence fees and replacement with spectrum fees. This saves the broadcasters around $90m per year (money which is forgone government revenue, by the way) so, of course, Foxtel had to be similarly rewarded for … running a commercial business in a competitive market.
It’s not yet clear what Foxtel will spend this money on, although some of it may be earmarked to support the nefarious deal it recently struck with Network Seven and Cricket Australia to do an end-run around the anti-siphoning legislation and put a load of international one day matches behind a paywall.

Curious move by the Government.

They should just go to a full election.

Very sad state of affairs.
ABC News would like to clarify that neither ABC News nor the ABC’s independent complaints investigation found that an article on corporate tax written by Emma Alberici “wrongly claimed that Australia’s largest companies paid no tax despite earning billions” or “confused company revenue with profits, on which taxes are paid”, as reported by The Australian today. The article was found to have included some factual errors, some of which were introduced during the editing process.

ABC News takes any factual errors seriously and the article was quickly corrected. A summary of the ABC’s internal investigation into the story can be found at http://about.abc.net.au/complaints/abc-news-online-265/

The Australian has also incorrectly stated that “Alberici’s news story and analysis piece … were removed and substantially rewritten”. The news article (Why many big companies don’t pay corporate tax) was amended but never removed. The analysis piece (There’s more to jobs and growth than a corporate tax cut) was reworked and republished
