'Complete hogwash'? When Bolt grilled Abbott, it sure was

Three months ago, Andrew Bolt interviewed then-PM Kevin Rudd. Today Bolt has interviewed Tony Abbott. Crikey intern Natalie Tencic compares the two interviews.

Tony Abbott has given his first full-length interview since becoming prime minister, and it was with “Australia’s most read columnist’,” New Corp’s Andrew Bolt. The pair went “head-to-head” in today’s Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph, billed as “Andrew Bolt tackles the PM on the big issues”.

    Self-serving stupidity in people in responsible positions provokes despair. I am ashamed of my government.

    for the life of me I cannot understand why people continue to use the expression “Andrew Bolt” and the word “journalist” in the same sentence and expect to be taken seriously.

    Has anybody heard of an oxymoron?

    Why are the media and pollies so obsessed with something they have no right to do?

    It is a legal right for anyone to sail on the sea, why on earth do we continue to whinge that we have a right to stop them?

    Look – Andrew Bolt has 100% faith in his own infallibility, why the hell do people continue to doubt him? If Abbott was as infallible as Bolt, he would certainly be Pope by now, not just a grovelling small country PM.

    Agree with Daemon – how can this be described as journalism? Of course, its perfectly fine to accuse the ABC of bias whilst ignoring your own biased views…..oh, sorry, The Blot is always right! No bias there then.

    More like “head for head” and how “Blot thrilled Abbott”?

    Can’t wait for him to turn on Abbott. B0lt harbours so much bile that it will eventually need an outlet.

    Commentators like B0lt annd Gloria depend on someone to punish – otherwise they have no material, they’ve got nothing.

    Good heavens I would hope that the ABC is seen as biased to the left of the likes of Andrew Bolt and members of the News Limited Howard/Abbott cheer squad who write for the OZ. So called mainstream opinion is forever being pulled to the right by vested interests and rabid radio shockjocks, why should the National Broadcaster be expected to follow?

    Bolt. Something for the nuts to hang on to.

    Anyone else unfortunate enough to hear Blot & Jones verbally masturbating this morning?
