October 8, 2013MWD Special 3ABC NEWS BREAKFAST GIVES ABC SELF-INDULGENCE A BAD NAME After a (very) Long Weekend, Nancy emerged from her kennel this morning and switched on the ABC 1 News Breakfast program – with Virginia Trioli and Michael Rowland in the presenters’ chairs.  Then, at around 6.45 am, Jonathan Green turned up to do the “Newspapers” gig. What (potential) fun.  And, believe it or not, the discussion went on for a staggering 11 minutes. [I believe it – Ed.] MWD just loves those occasions when ABC presenters (like La Trioli and Young Mr Rowland) interview ABC staff (like the ABC’s Sneerer-in-Chief Mr Green) about the ABC. However, this morning’s program ran the risk of giving self-indulgence a bad name.

September 9, 2013MWD Special 2NANCY WONDERS  – WILL JON FAINE CALL FOR A “CLEANSING” OF ABC LEFTISTS FOLLOWING TONY ABBOTT’S VICTORY ON SATURDAY?     Nancy voted late on Saturday 7 September when only Joe Hockey was visible at the polling booth.  After a heavy Saturday night which continued into Sunday night, Nancy rose early this morning.  And – lo and behold – she woke up with what Jonathan Swift used to call a modest proposal.  Here it is – inspired by “The (2007) Thought of Jon Faine”, presenter of Mornings with Jon Faine on ABC Melbourne Radio 774.   Following Kevin Rudd’s defeat of John Howard in November 2007, Jon Faine called for a “cleansing process” of conservative commentators.  During a discussion with Bruce Guthrie (then editor-in-chief of the Herald-Sun) on 5 February 2008, Mr Faine suggested that the columns by the likes of Janet Albrechtsen “represent the thinking that’s out of step …

June 3, 2013Statement by Gerard Henderson – Monday 3 June 2013STATEMENT BY GERARD HENDERSON – MONDAY 3 JUNE 2013 On Insiders last Sunday I commented that Rob Oakeshott held the view that Tony Abbott was not a suitable leader of the Liberal Party since he was a socially conservative Catholic. In particular, I said that Mr Oakeshott believed it was dangerous to have a Catholic like Tony Abbott running the Liberal Party. This comment is correct.  I have made it before – most recently in my Sydney Morning Herald column on 18 December 2012. Tony Abbott was elected Liberal Party leader on 1 December 2009.  On Tuesday 2 December 2009, the Port Macquarie News carried the following comments attributed to Mr Oakeshott: The election of Tony Abbott as Liberal leader is a major step backwards for Australian public policy, Lyne MP Rob Oakeshott said. The independent yesterday launched a stinging attack on Mr Abbott, whose election he said marked the …
