The ABC’s coverage of the federal budget was one of the most-watched in the history of the network, and one of Labor’s strongest in decades.
But there were some issues that the ABC was unable to address.
ABC News live: Labor’s $500 million cut to public schoolsThe ABC’s live coverage of Labor Party Senator Sam Dastyari’s speech to Parliament featured only a few highlights and didn’t do enough to make it a national issue.

ABC political coverage at night: Labor wins the Senate electionThe ABC News 24 live coverage was one that Labor had been trying to do well in, and that the government had tried to limit.
Senator Dick Smith told the ABC he believed the Senate was on the wrong side of history, and was trying to prevent the election from being a success.
ABC Political Editor Ben Wright asked Senator Smith whether he believed it was a good time for Labor to have a Senate election.
Senator Smith said he believed this was an opportunity for Labor.
