Taxpayers should not be ‘footing the bill’ for the ABC to spread minority opinion

The Institute of Public Affairs’ Bella D’Abrera says taxpayers “shouldn’t be footing the bill” for the ABC to spread minority opinion, as the national broadcaster faces backlash for ‘Australia Day/Invasion Day’ promotions.

The ABC has since removed its ‘Invasion Day’ headline following bipartisan backlash.

Ms D’Abrera said the IPA has conducted polls over the last four years, the latest of which revealed 69 per cent of Australians want to keep Australia Day on the 26th of January.

“The ABC refuses to report this,” she told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“If they want to keep broadcasting a minority opinion, the taxpayer shouldn’t be footing the bill for it.”
