Gratuitous Advertising: Bolt Worth Fighting For

BoltNo other commentator has been in the frontlines of so many of our biggest and sometimes divisive debates. There is no issue he will shy from – politics, immigration, Islam, terrorism, global warming, same-sex marriage, race-relations, film, literature and so many other important topics.Andrew Bolt is Australia’s most controversial columnist. He is also Australia’s most popular.

His input into the national debate is so influential, former prime minister Tony Abbott labelled him “our finest public intellectual”.

Andrew’s columns are published nationally in News Corp newspapers, including Melbourne’s Herald Sun, Sydney’s Daily Telegraph and Brisbane’s Courier Mail. He also writes Australia’s most-read political blog, and has two week night shows – The Bolt Report on Sky News Live and a national Macquarie radio show.

Now many of his best columns – plus blog posts and his diaries from Spectator Australia – have been collected in this volume.

Bolt – Worth Fighting For is Andrew’s writing at its most devastating best. Featuring the articles where he cuts through the spin and deception, and hones in on the real issues, to tell it like it is – fearlessly and without favour.

But there is more to this columnist. Bolt: Worth Fighting For also has Andrew opening up about his own life, loves and losses, and what has shaped his values. There are brand new articles, not printed anywhere else, that provide insight into Andrew as an individual, a proud Australian, husband and father.

This title is being released into all good book stores across Australia. It comes as Andrew expands his range into nightly television news, with The Bolt Report now on-air at 7pm Monday to Friday on Sky News Live.

Here is just a short sample of quotes in Bolt: Worth Fighting For demonstrating Andrew at his fearless best…

“Here’s Turnbull’s challenge in a nutshell: he stole the prime ministership he could not have won in an election. He stole it by boasting of superior communication skills he does not have. He will now campaign on successes by Abbott he could not have achieved himself.”

“This denial most stop. Our refugee intake must be stricter, taking fewer people from cultures likely to clash with our own, and we must be slower to shut down debates with screams of “racist.”

“Wakey, wakey, Mark. Wondered why it’s only “Right-wing commentators” attacking ABC bias? It’s because the Left – now calling itself “progressive” – can’t. It knows the ABC is stuffed to rafters with its own kind.”

  1. That image breaks the blog template by being way too wide, Sinc.

  2. Ah, already fixed.

    So is Bolt saying he himself is worth fighting for? Bit egotistical.

  3. Sinclair Davidson

    Thanks – fixed that.

    I’m not surprised you don’t like self-ownership.

    Embrace it monty – personal sovereignty.

    Buy it and find out monty.

    News Ltd, 2GB + others, and Sky have Bolt.

    We have Monty.

    Sigh.

  8. Nic

    You’d think you’d empathise wth things being too wide Monty.

  9. Geez, I thought us Cats would have got an invite to his book launch and all. Where’s the love?

  10. Ros

    A remarkable fellow.

    A bit egotistical! Whatever you think of him it is quite silly to deny his import.

  11. Baldrick

    Pity Bolt’s not free to speak his mind, thanks to 18c and the AbbottBeast’s lack of conjones.

  12. Roger

    I’m sorry, but for all his good points, if Bolt is our finest public intellectual we are in deep disarray culturally. Posting occasional opera clips does not make one an intellectual. Bolt is a reactionary; we need reactionaries, especially with the progressives presently rampant, but it is in the nature of the beast not to have deeply thought out solutions to what ails us.

  13. H B Bear

    Has this been ghost written by Peter of Bellevue Hill?

  14. eb

    A bit harsh I think Roger.

    Bolt works three jobs and 70 hours a week, according to him. He is not a trained philosopher or economist, simply a humble(!) journo. He is more of a conservative everyman, than actually a public intellectual.

    That’s why he is able to speak to such a large audience at a level they can relate to. Most public intellectuals actually speak to a comparatively small audience.

    Bolt is not perfect, I don’t always agree him, but, by jove, he’s doing a great job for “our side”.

  15. Roger

    He is more of a conservative everyman, than actually a public intellectual.

    Precisely, eb: that is my point.

    I have no problem with Bolt on most things; his instincts are usually right and we need writers who can connect at the popular level more than ever.

    But they in turn need real thinkers to propel them, lest they become consumed by their reactionary stance (we see this in the US). We seem to lack such thinkers on the conservative and/or liberal side – that is what concerns me. We in Australia, as heirs to Anglo-Saxon pragmatism, too easily dismiss the potency of the intellectual realm. If the ascendancy of the Left can teach us anything, it is that ideas that are today the subject of academic discussion can tomorrow move armies and pull down empires.

  16. Pity Bolt’s not free to speak his mind, thanks to 18c and the AbbottBeast’s lack of conjones.

    Yeah, it’s a pity he’s not allowed to publish books, or write newspaper columns, or host radio shows, or host TV programs, or write a blog.

  17. jupes

    Bolt certainly is the most courageous journo in Australia as well as the most prolific.

    His TV show on SKY is easily the best political show in Australia. Bolt is really hitting his straps now. Last nights interview with Mark Latham was magnificent.

    By the way, who is the Guest Author? I suspect it’s JC. He just loves Bolta.

  18. jupes

    Yeah, it’s a pity he’s not allowed to publish books, or write newspaper columns, or host radio shows, or host TV programs, or write a blog.

    You know as well as everyone here that he had to take down two of his columns and he can no longer comment on the subject of ‘white’ Aborigines.

  19. duncanm

    Roger,

    I’m not sure what you classify as a ‘real thinker’.

    Bolt may not be classically trained in ‘thinking’ – but he has developed his world view and quite obviously put some thought into it. He also publicly opens up the evolotion of his philosophies for all to see.

    I’d prefer that, than the hundreds of wet lettuce ‘thinkers’ who follow the well-trodden path

  20. Ant

    Bolt is a national treasure.

  21. Stimpson J. Cat

    My favorite indigenous Australian.
    He’s come so far.

    Leftard swampfilth doesn’t understand free speech. Colour me surprised.

  25. You know as well as everyone here that he had to take down two of his columns and he can no longer comment on the subject of ‘white’ Aborigines.

    He is perfectly able to do so on his own recognisance. News Limited, in their wisdom, won’t let him endanger their reputation and bank balance by doing so using their platforms, as is their right as a private employer. His free speech rights have not been curtailed in any way. He doesn’t have and never had the right to force Murdoch to print anything and everythung he could think of.

  26. .

    Tell me why getting someone’s paternal and maternal grandparents matters to how Aboriginal they are, monty?

    Look pal if you’re 1/32 or 1/64 Aboriginal and live as a white person and cop grants for underprivileged Aborigines, you’re taking the piss. You’re probably a low weak mongrel dog as well.

  27. And Bolt can start his own blog and say that, no problem. He just can’t put it on a News property.

  28. daggers

    Bolt would receive threats aplenty from the left, from unions and camel fanciers everywhere.
    Courageous. He deserves an award.

  29. Bruce in WA

    I like Andrew. I’ve had several email “discussions” with him and he’s been unfailingly polite, friendly and willing to engage. More than some other “journos” I’ve contacted.

    You’re a real champion of free speech. Whatever Mordy allows News to do.

  31. nerblnob

    Bolt is middlebrow conservative. Nothing wrong with that but not “intellectual”.

    He’s a bit sanctimonious for my tastes but he’s not remotely the “far right shock jock” that I was assured by Australians who’d apparently read of him but not read his writings. I’d never read anything by him until that ridiculous 18c prosecution piqued my curiosity.

    Even from afar, it smelt like a stitch-up but I was quite amazed when I read the proceedings to see what a blatant stitch-up it was.

    Many Australians still seem to think he was prosecuted for getting someone’s grandparents’ details wrong.

  32. Stimpson J. Cat

    He’ll do until we get a Milo.

  33. Mr Skeletor

    Bolt works because he isn’t an “intellectual.
    Frankly Australia needs a few less dopey “intellectuals” and a few more real-worlders in the political/media class.

  34. Viva

    I used to be a regular reader of Bolt’s blog and listened to him on the radio most nights. Now I wouldn’t feed him. I don’t mind that he doesn’t like Turnbull. I do mind that he has turned his media outlets into a one man sledging machine to try and destroy Turnbull with the Liberal goverment as mere collateral damage. This blog is in danger of heading in the same direction.

  35. Mr Skeletor

    What are you talking about, he doesn’t go anywhere near as hard on that asshole as he should.
    But I guess we are starting the narrative that when turnbull fails yet again it was really all the media’s fault.
