Dutton in a Crabby mood
CABINET Minister Peter Dutton has hit out at “largesse” at the ABC, criticising a decision to send a special crew to London for the royal wedding.
The minister said he couldn’t understand why the taxpayer-funded broadcaster flew presenters Annabel Crabb and Jeremy Fernandez to the UK for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials.
But the broadcaster defended the special coverage of the wedding.
“ABC audiences expect more than simply a live feed and news reports of such a major event,” it said.
