As for ‘perceptions’ about the construction of this show - may I simply point you to public criticisms from both the Prime Minister, and the Leader of the Opposition, of this show - hardly ‘nobody’. :joy:

It’s such a shame you find engaging on the issues and facts themselves so challenging. Give it a go some time. :wink:


#82

^ No, I’m happy to let you keep having these one-eyed conversations with yourself. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#83

Shame. We could discuss the latest Brax boy H&A storyline, if that’s more your thing? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#84

It’s absolutely not and if you actually read other people’s comments rather than troll them then you would have known that. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Q&A Extra on ABC NewsRadio and Facebook

As Q&A fans know, the conversation doesn’t end when the show does. For when you feel a need to debrief about what you just heard, tonight ABC News launches Q&A Extra.

Hosted by journalist Tracey Holmes on ABC NewsRadio, Q&A Extra begins as soon as Q&A ends, so viewers can discuss the night’s program straight away.

Q&A Extra will also be live-streamed on Facebook, with Tracey taking questions and comments from Facebook, Twitter and talkback. Listeners can call in to join the conversation with Tracey and her studio guest.

Georgina Downer from the Institute of Public Affairs was special guest on the debut of Q&A Extra. I listened to it on NewsRadio and it was quite good. Tracey took four calls from listeners and discussed with Georgina some of the issues raised during the main program. I think the time given to Q&A Extra is too short (it fills in the space between the end of the radio simulcast and the 11pm AEDT bulletin) and Tracey was not able to even say the questions posted by Facebook users tonight. The show should be extended to at least 11.30pm AEDT with a five-minute newsbreak at 11pm AEDT as usual.


#88

Yes, I’m sure it was focused very sharply indeed.

Live stream on Periscope on Twitter.

Edit: Live stream Q&A Extra on Facebook.


#91

Based on the first image above, I see the programme is continuing with bringing in obscure nobodies, who the left wing think are edgy because of their religion (ooh! edgy) or their gender (ooh! edgy). Yawn. Haven’t watched this show in months now.

The whole point of the show is opening up a forum where normal people can ask important questions of people who otherwise are not as accessible.

It’s Q&A, not Insight on SBS.


#92

Oh, have just seen the write-ups. Apparently she had a big bust up - like that’s not what they had her on for in the first place, lol. So predictable.

What the f*ck is a “Muslim youth leader” anyway - any I’m assuming, considering Muslims comprise 2% of the population in Australia, that we’ll have the next 48 episodes containing a “Christian youth leader”? No? Oh.

LOL at the dopeys in the audience clapping and whooping about a point relating to Sharia Law (see clip below). Jesus Christ left wingers are so stupid, they’ll cheer anything they sniff is remotely anti someone right-wing. If “Sharia Law” says “you respect the laws of the land you are on”…then, uh, we can presumbly rename Sharia Law “the laws of the Commonwealth and the States of Australia” then?


#93

Oh, now we have the answer.

Taxpayers billed for Q&A activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied’s grand tour of Islamic regimes
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/taxpayers-billed-for-qa-activist-yassmin-abdelmagieds-grand-tour-of-islamic-regimes/news-story/7d406323d63bdca4b20da74d567fa028

The federal government paid for activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied to tour some of the world’s most repressive Islami­c regimes last Novem­be­r, promoting her book about being a Sudanese-Egypt­ian-Australian Muslim woman who wears the hijab.
Ms Abdel-Magied,…made headlines this week when, as a guest on the ABC’s Q&A program, she describe­d Islam as “the most femin­ist” of all relig­ions.

Just so utterly pathetic all round. A rort on the taxpayers from beginning, to the end product we saw delivered to us on Monday night.


#94

Tony Jones should have challenged Yassmin Abdel-Magied on her claims about her religion. It doesn’t take much of a Google search to find out that her claims are dubious.

#96

I can’t stand Q&A and this article pretty much sums up why.

And it would appear that shifting it to the news and current affairs portfolio hasn’t changed much about the show, either.

Insight on SBS seems to do a much more sensible approach to bringing opposing sides together without relying on “gotcha moments” or snark.


#97

TelevisionAU - THANK YOU! I hadn’t seen that article this week, so thanks for posting it here. It is a perfect summation of everything I’ve been saying about this show for YEARS!

But, BUT, they have some gall publishing that when…

…Fairfax has had a ridiculous glowing summary of the snark and ‘take downs’ of right wing politicians for years.

Yeah. Don’t think so mate. You’re always making me sound crazy but I’m always bang on.

###“All About Women”

Wednesday 1 March at 2017

Can there ever be place for forgiveness after rape?

Sexual violence, online trolling and China’s radical One Child Policy are among the confronting topics to be discussed on this Monday night’s special “All about women” Q&A, produced in collaboration with the Sydney Opera House.

Joining host Tony Jones:

  • Icelandic anti-violence campaigner Thordis Elva who is appearing around the nation alongside the Australian man who raped her, to discuss violence and forgiveness

  • Malaysian-Chinese-American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mei Fong who has charted the impact of China’s “one child” experiment

  • Feisty feminist American author and performer Lindy West who wants to obliterate the expectation that women will be “small”. Her book Shrill traverses the themes of fat-shaming, Twitter-trolling, racism and sexism.

  • Actor, music journalist and presenter Faustina “Fuzzy” Agolley

  • Former chief advisor on indigenous family violence to the PM, lawyer & businesswoman Josephine Cashman

Q&A is simulcast LIVE around the country on ABC TV, ABC News 24, ABC NewsRadio and iview. Australia Plus Television also broadcasts Q&A in to Asia and the Pacific.

Bunch of nobodies, conducted under the false banner that rape is a women’s issue. Yawn. Won’t be tuning in.

Fat-shaming. Indigenous. Family violence. Rape. Twitter trolling. Obscure members of the alt-left. This is an orgy of everything the ABC obsesses over.
