ABC staff call on chairman to stand aside

0

Staff at the ABC have called on chairman Justin Milne to stand aside while an independent inquiry examines his actions in calling for a senior journalist to be sacked to appease the government.

Employees of the national broadcaster passed the motion at a meeting in Sydney on Wednesday afternoon stating an investigation was needed to protect the ABC’s independence.

An explosive email has revealed Mr Milne instructed former ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie – who was sacked by the board earlier this week – to fire the broadcaster’s chief economics correspondent, Emma Alberici, in May.
