Dogwhistling to ABC supporters also drowns out media coverage about LNP getting rid of the debt ceiling.
Hiding any references to a debt number - makes it harder for people to track exactly how much LNP debt they will be mounting.

*gift-giver NOT git-giver. Freudian slip perhaps? - Kerrie
In general I think returning gifts/re-gifting is poor form...but I do think it is OK to re-gift/donate unwanted presents if it is otherwise going to be wasted and the git-giver will be none the wiser. My sister for example is a teacher and ends up with around 60 boxes of chocolates (yes, 60) at the end of the year so she gives lots away to neighbours, friends and kids in the street! She is upfront with the recipient about where it came from so I think that makes it OK! - Kerrie
If one was really cynical - this could also look like the typical LNP play of dogwhistling to distract the media & public from the last LNP fuck up.
Or to distract from the fact that 100 days into the Abbott Govt & all they have done is lurch from disaster to disaster.
This will take Education off the front page & give the same people who support Education another issue to think about.
Also gives ABC journos reporting on Abbott Govt something else to think about.
The Muppet Govts smoke & mirrors deception & "look over here" style of campaigning is alive & well - while they are still trashing the joint & bludgeoning their opponents. Still no subtlety there. - janes
All this ABC bashing & defunding threats are really the worst example of the "tail wagging the dog".
Murdoch & his News media lackeys want to get rid of the ABC as competition for commercial reasons.
IPA & the right wing propagandists want to get rid of the ABC because they don't want any voices of reason or truth to get in the way of their attempts to indoctrinate people with their warped views.
Cory Bernardi is the worst kind of hard core right wing political puppet mouthpiece. A one dimensional ideologue..
Of course Abbott & his puppet masters don't want to hear the voice of a national media organisation they can't control.
The ABC has the sort of levels of Aust public trust that all these right wingers can only dream of.
This is just the Abbott controllers next step in shutting down information sharing, public discussion & dissenting voices.
The last few years of biased hatred & lies that have spewed from Aust commercial privately owned media - are by far the best argument for keeping the ABC as it is. (And SBS)
Enough is enough. Hands off OUR ABC. - janes

How sad are the Feminazi's who can't bear the fact that men might be able to purchase sexual gratification from perfectly willing females.
Most escorts seem to be Left Wing anyway, so you manhaters should lay off them, they vote for the same party as you do. - Harland Sanders
Corinne .. Is it just possible that you are so stuck in your beliefs that you can't see the truth? You bag Scott Morrisson but the boats have stopped .. that was the aim .. is it possible that his methods are working? You bag Abbott on the spying stuff. That all happened in 2009 when Labor were in Government. Abbott is sticking up for Labors stuff up. You bag Pyne on Gonski. Labor's education rewvolution caused us to go backwards. Wake up!!! You now owe $15,000 for every man woman and child in Australia in debt. That's $60,000 for a family of 4. When Labor came to power you had $3,00 each in credit. When Labor left office in 1993 you owed $5,000 for every man woman and child. Wake Up!!!!!!!! - Andrew
