ABC meeting with PM “productive”

ABC issued a brief statement after meeting with Scott Morrison & Paul Fletcher yesterday:

ABC Chair Ita Buttrose and Managing Director David Anderson had a very productive meeting with the Prime Minister and the Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts this afternoon.

The ABC raised its concerns about the raid last week and about the implications for media freedom.

The ABC looks forward to working constructively with other media companies to pinpoint areas of concern and to pursue the case for legislative review.

The meeting was organised before the events of last week. The ABC also discussed resourcing and audience challenges facing the Corporation and the Prime Minister and the Minister indicated a willingness to continue a dialogue about longer term financial security.
