ABC MD Michelle Guthrie has defended the public broadcaster in a Melbourne Press Club speech. She argued that the ABC contributes at least $A1bn to the broader economy each year, and it directly or indirectly supports about 6,500 jobs. Guthrie added that the ABC is still highly valued by the general public, and any move to privatise it would be opposed by both the public and the commercial media sector.
