Liberal senator Eric Abetz has criticised the ABC’s executive remuneration policy, arguing that the public broadcaster needs to justify its excessively high salaries. Abetz was responding to revelations that one ABC executive was paid more than $692,000 in 2017-18, including a bonus of $232,500. He adds that the ABC and its supporters cannot complain about lack of sufficient funding while paying exorbitant salaries.
