I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW...
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
My TV set has finally croaked it. After 12 years of never being off, I believe switching things on and off wears them out. (A continuous cab I once drove had 600,000 mile on the clock.) Anyway, it was looking like a 3D experiment without the cardboard glasses, and the picture kept shaking.
It was getting hard to follow a football, let alone a bloody tennis ball. So, when it shuddered, exhaled with a little sigh and went all black, it was off to Gerry Harvey’s joint for a bit of jousting on a trade in.
Wow, this LED and HD stuff is a real eye-opener. Little beads of sweat on Clive, tiny hairs on Julie’s cheeks, Sarah’s bottom lip quivering, while pausing for her brain to catch up with her gob and Bill even looks a bit like I draw him. Bloody marvellous!
So I thought, bugger it, I’ll risk another 8c and return to my regular ABC Monday evenings... surely there’s no way I’ll be chuckin’ stuff at my new LED TV.
Well, 4 Corners was hoeing into the Micks with a progressive Pope Francis thinking about canning celibacy (but they didn't say if that included choir boys) and anyway it's only for a trial period, they reckon.
The bloke on Media Watch with the two Christian names was trying to link Alan Jones with the murder of some drug dealer while breathlessly demonising Bolt and Murdoch at the same time.
And yes, he was still contorting his face, desperately trying not to expose a set of teeth that resemble implanted toe nails. Nothing much had changed there.
Crumbs, I only lasted 10 minutes of Q&A. There was an ALP bird who couldn’t resist interrupting everyone else and an aesthetically challenged bloke in a check shirt who was explaining that all the CO2 in the atmosphere is ours.
Blimey, where does Tony Jones find these galahs? I could see my 8c was going down the drain fast.
Unperturbed, I returned for a bit of Lateline only to discover yet another pantomime on global warming. Suddenly my old TV didn’t seem all that bad.
Anyone want a slightly damaged brand new Samsung?
