Andrew Olle Media Lecture

John Doyle's wonderfully witty, wise, and striking contribution to the Andrew Olle Media Lectures, broadcast on ABC TV last night, is now online and highly recommended.

I particularly like his idea of the commercial stations subsidising ABC drama to turn the ABC into `the Australian HBO'. Ah, in a perfect world ...

Thanks for the link. I missed the telecast so downloaded the mp3 and had a listen at work on Tuesday morning.

Good to see that Miranda Devine had a swipe at Doyle in her SMH column today. Devine calling anyone a lazy thinker is a bit of a laugh.

I was about to dismiss her yet again as a self-righteous bubblehead until I came across this phrase in her column today:

`People who have spent a lifetime defending bad ideas seem to lose the capacity for logical thought'

For once, Miranda, I totally agree!

(And then, I move instantly on to Paul Keating article on the IR changes. Talk about the article we had to have ... come back Paul ... PLEASE ... come back ...

Heh, I happen to agree with you on the Keating piece. I am non-party political, and never liked Keating's style, but I thought that his article today was a solid challenge to Howard's mob. Coupled with some floor-walking, I detect (at long last) a genuine threat to the "Coalition" hegemony. It's a pity parliamentary Labor cannot perform as admirably.

The cartoon (yesterday's Herald?) showing Kim standing dumb with the IR footy in his hand said it all.
