Proving that the ABC is utterly without any lefty bias, lefty activist group GetUp! is campaigning for an increase in ABC funding:
We are at a turning point in the future of a fundamental and cherished Australian institution, the ABC.
It’s adorable when leftoids rave about “fundamental and cherished institutions”. They sound so … conservative. At least it’s a change from them talking about cherished mental institutions, with which they tend to be not unfamiliar.
As it stands, the ABC is $264 million poorer in real terms today than it was 20 years ago.
They still haul in about $750,000,000 per year. The ABC is “poorer” in the sense that Bill Gates is “poorer” after his wife goes on an eBay binge.
The programs we rely on – from independent news and current and affairs to quality children’s content – are under extreme pressure.
Tell me; why should Australian taxpayers fund GetUp!’s ABC dependency?
In a very real sense, the integrity of the ABC is now at stake.
Integrity depends on money? I’m disgusted to hear this.
Sign this petition to restore the ABC’s funding. We need to act now before it’s too late.
I’d be fine with acting after it’s too late, but whatever. Please sign it, everybody. Sign it with your signiest signatures.
Let’s show politicians in Canberra that the ABC’s owners – the public – are prepared to stand up and defend it.
If we owned the ABC, we’d be able to sell it.
For this to work, every signature counts. We’ve set a goal of 10,000 signatures. Will you – and your friends and colleagues – help us get there?
The goal is only 10,000 signatures? I guess that reflects the current buzzless state of GetUp!, which launched last year to a media frenzy; the New York Times even ran a piece on GetUp!’s 7000-signature David Hicks petition. The hype hasn’t helped. Latest Alexa traffic rank for GetUp! is a get-down 535,920.
