AUNTIE NEWS IGNORES BIFFER BALDING

I know the feeling Biffs old boy, but you'd think your troops would find a moment to notice your good news. God knows, you didn't deserve it:

ABC Managing Director, Russell Balding, has welcomed the Federal Government's commitment to renew funding for the ABC's National Interest Initiative Program, announced in tonight's budget.

"This funding of almost $18 million per annum will allow the ABC to continue delivering its new programs and services,particularly to regional centres throughout Australia," Mr Balding said.
