Seriously, what is this. Who are these people. You can’t just have an hour of prime time national broadcasting for nobodies.


#65

Ummm these three people are the Sunraysia-Mallee region I assume? If the show is to be filmed in Mildura then local people should be invited as panellists.


#66

No they shouldn’t. Don’t film in local areas if you’re going to put a bar on who can be on the show.

It’s an opportunity for local people, if the show is in the area, to question people of importance - not to chat to the person they see down at the pub anyway.


#67

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.


#68

You don’t see the big deal? You don’t have to imagine or see any deal. I put the issue in plain English for you already - our national broadcaster should not be setting aside an hour of prime time discussion for nobodies.

The issues raised are often international and national news and current affairs - we don’t need a hyper local panel simply because it’s in Mildura. Just like we don’t need solely Sydney panels for shows based in Sydney.

If there was someone prominent from the town - great. Otherwise, it shouldn’t make any difference where the show is being filmed.

Final Q&A for 2016 is Monday 21 November

The world may be, but you can bet this programme doesn’t.

This programme is such a troll. Loud, assertive right-winger put up against quietly spoken female left-winger (who is clearly always seething below the surface, having noted her Parliamentary performances). I wonder how this will play out in front of a left-wing audience.

If you’re going to have one personality type representing one side of politics one week, then ensure there is balance with a raving lefty the next.


#73

Why did Q&A start so late tonight? It did not air until around 9.50pm AEDT.


#74

Special 4 Corners?


#75

Oops. I got the female left-winger wrong. Guess they had two on the panel.

So predictable, both the programme itself, and Fairfax’s prominent write up the next day.

Never mind the fact what she was saying was factually incorrect. That there is a carve out in the law for artistic expression. That the cartoon illustrated a scenario which displays the lack of parenting that so many Aboriginals themselves raise awareness of in remote communities. The cartoon did not portray an entire race of people. Example: cartoon makes fun of white, Sydney western suburbs mother on the choice of name for her children - this portrays a group of people, not a race.

But apparently, it was racist because she is Aboriginal. Ooh. Smack down. End of story. No time for facts or nuanced debate.

It doesn’t affect everyone, so it doesn’t need to be changed, she further proffered. Never mind the prominent court cases last week that showed complaints under this section of the Racial Discrimination Act for damages to not have any legal merit. Forget all that. Senators shouldn’t be discussing laws. They’re not law-makers working in the Parliament which makes laws, and amends them, in the face of court decisions (oops, actually they are). The Senator was apparently abusing his position discussing the amendment of a law (!), mistakenly described as a personal agenda (so personal, that four individuals were hauled before the courts).

Powerful, independent female Aboriginal silencing angry old Eric Abetz? Left-wing orgasm.

Oh, Christ. Just re-read the article again. They actually say she silenced the room. Beyond parody.

And she apparently ‘threw shade’ on her opponents. Is this written by a uni student politician?

And what was her golden quote for the night? Comparing the US to something titled ‘Turd Island’. How charming. How insightful.

The ABC does a great disservice to political debate in this country with this programme, with its ill-informed participants, who are, quite often, complete morons.


#76

See, the problem is that this programme is so infrequently watched, and Fairfax now so diminished in Australia, for these threads of conversation to be tested with the public. If they were, you’d have Trump & Brexit times 10 in this country. Serious nonsense.


#77

^ Looks like you’re just talking to yourself. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#78

Perhaps. The critique of a show like Q&A, its effect on politics, and how media organisations such as Fairfax subsequently cover politics, should be bread and butter for a forum that calls itself MediaSpy. However, these days, we have to be content with inane commentary here on TV Week magazine and Home & Away.


#79

Obviously nobody agrees with your perceptions or conspiracy theories.


#80

Haha oh please, this thread gets 5 comments per year in it. And 4 of those are TV.Cynic posting the press release telling us who’s on the show in advance.

But in any case, they’re just the words used by Fairfax, and the words used by the legislation itself - it’s almost a conspiracy theory that you think discussing an article from a national newspaper is now somehow some kind of conspiracy theory. :laughing:
