On the ABC at Estimates

The boss of the ABC is also the editor-in-chief responsible for news and current affairs. Ms Guthrie says she decided to return the Cabinet Files. It would be outrageous if she’d delegated such a major decision. That said, it reopens the debate on whether the ABC's managing director should be required to have had high level journalistic experience (which IMO they must).
