No, you didn’t argue that the panel would attract viewers. But you were arguing that this panel would not be a turn-off for viewers as I had described it would be.


#142

Sorry, what’s bullshit, and what do you mean nothing of the sort?

This is what you are referring to. Are you saying you didn’t argue the panelists were very widely known? Think you’re the one lying mate. You’ve twisted my statement that you were proved incorrect with the ratings, as somehow being that I said you thought ratings would be high with this panel.


#143

Correct. Now go away.


#144

How about you go away instead of pestering people that want to legitimately talk about Q&A in the Q&A thread, instead of picking fights on irrelevant minor points and wording, about a show you’ve just said you couldn’t give a shit about?

How about that?


#145

If you didn’t keep incorrectly attributing comments to me then I wouldn’t have to respond to them to set the record straight.

So please feel free to talk about Q&A (or any subject) without hanging shit on forum members for expressing a differing opinion.


#146

You literally came into a show’s thread (that apparently you don’t care about) to argue on a minute point that I was wrong in saying, generally, that a panel with Mem Fox was a panel of nobodies.

Ridiculous. Actually pathetic.


#147

FFS :rolling_eyes:


#148

Yep, that’s exactly how I feel arguing silly little points with someone that actually admits they couldn’t give a shit about this programme.


#149

Let me scroll up literally a third of the way up this thread:[quote=“Firetorch, post:101, topic:608”]
Oh God what a bunch of nobodies.
[/quote]

This argument is really going somewhere…

For the record, for a show as shitty and manufactured as QandA, I agree with @Frankie :


#150

Yes. Totally stand by those two statements. Bunch of nobodies with no prominent public image, and viewers tuned out in record numbers because of it. Simple.


#151

This thread is going nowhere fast. Move on please or take it to PMs.

Can’t wait for this thread to gain 50 posts about fake news by early Tuesday morning…


#154

Can we expect an Alternative Facts edition of Bolt next week as a rebuttal? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#156

To fit in Media Watch between it and Four Corners?


#157

Four Corners used to go till 9.15 then Media Watch to 9.30.

But these days Four Corners goes to 9.20 which pushes MW to finish at 9.35.


#158

Ha, for years I post nearly every week about Q&A’s panel selection and no one ever responds to the thread, because no one watches it.

Therefore, discarding the outlier last week where JBar decided to pursue a childishly irrelevant point, why on earth would there 50 posts here on Tuesday morning?

Far left programme, whose viewership has been decimated recently, decides to do another large troll and discuss fake news…with news being represented by Al Jazeera. Yawn! Obvious troll by Q&A is obvious.


#160

Buzzfeed has uncovered that one of the questioners on Q&A last night was a former staffer of Tony Abbott. He claimed that news outlets such as the ABC focus too much on “homosexual marriage”. He has also previously been condemned by his own party for alleged homophobic comments on social media.
