It seems Bolt is going to introduce a new segment to his ‘Bolt Report’ show on Channel Ten. It will be called NewsWatch; a direct take on the ABCs Media Watch program.
It highlights once again Bolt’s inability to dream up anything original to push his propaganda. This is the second time Bolt has stolen or modified Left-wing tags to further what Bolt’s employers euphemistically call ‘journalism’.
Last September I wrote of how Bolt had stolen the academic Robert Manne’s tag, ‘New Racism’ for his own perverse racist propaganda purposes. Now he’s done it again.
In his column today, Bolt says that the ‘ABC lacks the balance of Fox News’ and implies that his new NewsWatch segment will be some kind of Australian free-to-air version of Fox News.
Originality is not one of Bolt’s finer traits, a fact demonstrated by his extensive use of cut and pasted articles from elsewhere, so one has to wonder what it is that makes him employable. The answer, I think, lays in the demographics of his audience who hang on to his every word – even if originally they belonged to someone from the Left.
