Andrew Denton responds:


Mark is clearly attempting to attack all of Australia in alphabetical order and
he must have missed me the first time he went through the D’s. People can judge
the interview for themselves, just as they will Tony’s. I thought both were
compelling in different ways, something the ABC should be proud of. It’s just
another Mark Latham contradiction, however, that he bewails the ‘insider’
culture of Australian political reporting, but the only journalist he seems
comfortable talking to is a man who told a Sydney radio station last week that
he’d spent the last month visiting Mark’s house, helping him pick up the kids
and “watching him cook chicken cacciatore”. Sorry Mark, this is yet another
instance where you can’t have it both ways.
