ABC staff call on chairman to stand aside


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.
