Now here’s a Q&A that would get a record audience. As Andrew Bolt has asked, Margaret, why didn’t you invite me?. The invitations that were extended come 58 seconds into the presentation, saving you more than an hour of tedium. Here is Andrew’s comment:
Margaret Simons, head of Melbourne University’s journalism course, introduces ABC boss Mark Scott by noting that News Corp people had declined to debate him.
Funny, I didn’t get an invitation. Nor did Simons mention I’d invited Scott to put his case on The Bolt Report and he has refused.
Now this would be a heavyweight division contest. My suspicion, though, on why Andrew wasn’t invited is because they know that one-on-one and over the course of an hour he would absolutely take Scott to the cleaners even with Tony Jones in the chair.
