FULL INTERVIEW: Sky News host Chris Kenny spoke with former ABC journalist and staff appointed board member Quentin Dempster as the future of the public broadcaster comes under the spotlight as an election issue.

The former ABC journalist has argued that there are ‘forces at work’ in Australia that are ‘out to destroy public broadcasting’, and warns if Scott Morrison and the Coalition are re-elected the ABC is ‘for the high jump’.

Mr Dempster dismissed concerns over the media company’s reporting integrity as it’s future becomes a campaign issue and has told Sky News that there is a ‘whole regime of disciplines’ in place in order to make sure the ABC ‘toes the line as far as balance is concerned’.
