Multicultural broadcaster SBS has asked for an extra $70 million on top of the $191 million they already receive from the government to provide TV shows for migrants to watch. (Is that politically incorrect? It seems politically incorrect.)

The same SBS who not-so-long-ago spent approximately $11 gajillion purchasing the local rights to Top Gear? Well, I guess those exorbitant international formats won’t purchase themselves, will they.
