I fully understand why certain people in the Federal Liberal Coalition believe that the ABC is anti-government and should be privatised.   One of the duties that many people see as the responsibility of the ABC, and indeed of the quality newspapers such as The Age that are not controlled by self-centred media barons and shareholders, is to keep the government “of the day” honest.  There is no reason why the Labor Party deserves a great deal of scrutiny at this time as they are in opposition and mostly ineffective anyway.  Should Anthony Albanese somehow manage to win the next election, I have no doubt that it won’t be long before members of his government start complaining about the impartiality of the ABC.
