Former ABC director Joe Gersh has called out the public broadcaster for not examining the explosion of anti-Semitism in Australia.

Mr Gersh said he is a supporter of a “strong, independent and impartial” ABC.

“I observed independently of you and put on social media my concern which is why has it fallen to Sky News?” he told Sky News host Sharri Markson.

“It is a matter of deep concern to me, as a member of the Jewish community, as a former ABC director, and as an Australian citizen that our national broadcaster has not fully understood and dealt with what I believe has reached crisis proportion.”
