I doubt if he'll be too popular after his role in the coup.

You were right about Jones.

The Parrot had very limited support from the Q&A audience.

Jones has more to worry about than the Q&A audience.

If The Parrot loses that court case his pockets will be very empty.

We eagerly wait for the verdict.  :|

Who saw 4 Corners on Monday night? There seems to be division within the ABC as to whether or not Steve Bannon should have been given a platform to espouse his far right views. Although I felt a bit shell-shocked that the ABC aired some of those views, I thought that Sarah Ferguson did very well in challenging them during the interview. https://www.theguardian.com/media/commentisfree/2018/sep/07/steve-bannon-backlash-as-four-corners-interview-splits-the-abc

Yes I saw the program and found it very interesting even though I don't agree with Bannon's views overall, there were some threads of truth in what he said as there is in what most people say.

Just because someone is viewed as "far Right" or "far Left" doesn't mean that they should be banned from putting their views across, and we should not be afraid of listening to views we on't agree with because it challenges our intellect to come up with counter arguements.


As you say, Sarah Ferguson did an excellent job as Bannon acknowledged.

There was actually quite a good discussion of the Bannon interview on The Drum last night. All but one panellist supported the interview, saying that it was important to allow extremist views to be aired publicly in an interview situation, so that they can be challenged publicly. Otherwise, extremists work behind the scenes and the public aren't aware of their backroom actions. A good point raised was that the interview should have been balanced by having someone (other than the reporter) with opposing views, so that the topics could have been debated more openly.

I agreed with what David Marr said on The Drum, we have to air these views so they can be challenged.


Mybe Bannon vs Bernie Sanders would be a good contest.
