I love The Checkout and think it’s one of the best shows the the ABC produces and the only Australian Consumer Law show I know of on TV. This is exactly what we need an ‘ABC’ for.

The government had their way they would sell the ABC so they can influence the media. Cut costs so they can not do their job properly.

It looks like there are now quite a few petitions on Change.org calling for The Checkout to be saved. I even started one myself around the same time you started yours (sorry, should have done a search before that). As a result, the signatures are spread thin across multiple petitions (there are about 6). I contacted change.org support to see if there is a way to combine all these petitions and they said their platform doesn't have this functionality but did offer a manual workaround. They said that provided each of the other petition organisers contacts them (from the same email address as their change.org account) and asks them to combine the petitions, they will do so. After the petitions are combined, each of them will continue to be run and managed separately but all the existing signatures, as well as any future ones, will be assigned to ALL the individual petitions which have requested to be combined. This will allow us to get much bigger numbers which is what we want if we are to approach ABC TV. You need to email
help@change.org (from the same email address as your change dot org account) and quote reference number 290771. The name of the person dealing with this case is William. Feel free to PM me if you like to discuss further. Here is a link to my petition so that you can reference it when you email them. Let's do this! :) https://www.change.org/p/australian-broadcasting-corporation-tell-the-abc-to-keep-the-checkout-on-the-air

It's happening everywhere, the same cutting down and cutting out of good informative journalism. Time for consumers to voice their concern loudly and clearly.
