ANDREW BOLT|Old Dog Thoughts |
News Corporation employs Andrew Bolt and provides him with a platform ensuring the inequality of speech. Bolt's Blog not only advocates conservative, right wing and Tea Party views it moderates out most opposing opinions which he is entitled to do. However Andrew Bolt simply lies when he says he provides an arena for fair and balanced discussion in a no spin zone. He doesn't it's all spin.

Andrew Bolt's Blog, 21/2/17; Andrew Bolt is Max Candy from Cape Fear; Self appointed judge; The dog knows best; The Bolt Report dogs playin cards; Debating styles; Bolt is not thinking, Times Up; Total confusion about Anna Bligh,
Milo Yiannopoulos is a senior editor at Breitbart.com, the “alt-right” website formerly run by Stephen Bannon, President Donald Trump’s chief strategist (Bannon is still set to speak at CPAC this year). Yiannopoulos has spent years positioning himself as the poster boy for radical “free speech,” traveling on speaking tours and doing publicity stunts that target, hurt, and harass women, people of color, undocumented students, and the transgender community, among other already at-risk groups and Andrew Bolt loves him and offers damage control on his behalf.
"On my shows: how Milo crashed and why free speech isn't an excuse" Bolt (shows? Is he still claiming Mirand's as his, most likely!!!)
Just two days after news broke that Breitbart.com’s serial harasser Milo
Yiannopoulos would speak at this year’s Conservative Political Action
Conference (CPAC), the conference’s hosts have rescinded his speaking
invitation after video circulated of Yiannopoulos “condoning pedophilia.”
While CPAC is now trying to do damage control, there were any number of
reasons not to elevate Yiannopoulos before the video resurfaced. And
anyone familiar with Yiannopoulos’ persona -- including the leadership
at CPAC -- should have known that continuing to ally themselves with a
champion of the so-called “alt-right” would eventually lead to something
Defending George, Milo and bullshit peddled as something else. In other words you can say whatever you want and if that causes someone to kill it's not your responsibility because words can't hurt incite or inspire. Yet Bolt has accused the actions of so many who were "inspired" by the speech of he demands action be take against some "inspirers" but not against all because some should be protected by the right of free speech. Anyone advocating ISIS is a worthwhile cause has no right to be protected but should be bombed but apparently Milo advocating the right of older men to have sex with young boys is fine "Why the "free speech" cause is being damaged again (and beware, the
headline on the clip below is not accurate, since Milo actually rejects
pedophilia):"Bolt Bolt take note like Trump is claiming this as fake news" What of the inspiration Bolt it's okay for someone to say "Screw Bolt's daughter" If somebody did it and was inspired by the message it's don't shoot the messenger is that the logic behind free speech? It seems the conservatives in America don't agree with you and certainly not Milo.What is the man saying above. Bolt says he believes he's entitled to say whatever he wants and bugger the consequences. America doesn't think so. neither does Bolt but he pretends he defends everyones rights to say what they want even for inspiration's sake. I say he's talking frog shit." While Yiannopoulos is no longer speaking at the event, CPAC did announce
another speaker on Monday: someone who was caught on tape bragging
about sexual assault and then managed to win a presidential campaign."Media MattersUPDATEBolt's editorial Free speech works and Milo has listened and said sorry. No mention of the paid contracts lost not due to the left but the astonishment of the right and organizations that are rapidly trying to distance themselves from him. You say lets think this through "If you can" how patronizing is that comment to your own team. Milo is on the edge of losing his job at Breitbart think that through "if you can" $$$$$ How much is this man trying to inspire going to lose? Can he say enough sorries to make it go away? Your editorial was begging for forgiveness when you have none and go for the jugular when people in the audience of Q&A say things that you find easy to attack when theirs no money to be lost on their part you dig in the heel and grind and say your an advocate of 'free speech'. Speech is free between equals. Debating and it's rules ensure that. Outside of a moot there is no 'free speech' Section 18C goes a small way to improve that. Apparently your umbrage to what happened to you reflects that you you feel entitled to lie and and you are offended that the protection of Cultural capital was neutralized. When these factors were accounted for and the equality of speeches were evaluated you lost. That's justice in the civilized world Mr Bolt
Andrew Bolt reveals himself to be a serious Trumpster today Trumpsters are letting the world know Sweden is covering up the truth with fake news. The media and government are hiding the facts on immigrant crime in Sweden. Andrew Bolt is echoing much the same alternative news "It's frightening not just because we cannot actually find proof that global warming is producing the predicted catastrophes."Bolt "the real disasters are produced by global warming alarmists"BoltYesterday Andrew Bolt would have us believe VW was the victim and not the perpetrator of fraud when found guilty. If that were true then yes Andrew Bolt is an indigenous Australian as well. 'JeSuisIkea': Trump's comments confuse Swedes as supporters cry cover-up | US news | The GuardianDoes Bolt see himself as some sort of free spirit like Cool Hand Luke or Randle P McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest character? Well if he does I can assure you he's not because he's much more like Max Candy in Cape Fear or David Koresh suicidal cult leader. His work colleagues while right wing are even beginning to see him as dangerous a Gobellian loon. Miranda Devine has him destroying any notion of journalism reasoned news. She sees him turning the front pages and media into little more than a war of unverifiable opinion all in the name of free speech. Bolt is a fully fledged Trumpster who believe in the man and his method that anything said needs no verification because his followers will simply believe it to be true. However Bolt is losing respect as fast if not faster than Donald Trump. We don't have the history of religious fervour the USA has. We don't have a David Koresh like figure who believed himself to be a prophet. Current research has shown we don't ache for the level of 'free speech' that Bolt does. We actually want to retain Section 18C that demands civility and a level of fact. We aren't Trumpsters who find god in men like the DonaldBolt won't tell you this but his favorite Right Wing Comedian genius and Breitbart editor who he promotes on his show the Bolt Report Milo has been dropped like a burning hot coal by US conservatives because of his promotion of pedophilia. Will Bolt jump declare it "fake news" and rise publicly in his defense as he did George Pell? Conservatives Shocked To Discover That Milo Yiannopoulos Is A Terrible Human Being Bolt like Trump is flipping turning the argument to nonsense trying as best he can to obscure any notion of truth.
How often have we heard Bolt say "I'm an individual treat me like one" My position is no your not Andrew Bolt. Your socialization your history and your patterns of behavior make you predictable and recognizable as a person not of class but of a 'class' in society. The problem however you are totally misguided. You may network with the business and political class but your not one. Yes your a tool in both ways. That however can't be said of newly arrived immigrants that haven't found their place. Yes criminal exist but all immigrants and refugees aren't criminals as you suggest and as Trump suggested in his dumb remark about Sweden. Are you implying Rita Panahi has the seeds within her that are a danger to us? No well I do for reasons other than her Iranian heritage. She displays the same values that you do false ones that have you kid yourself about the value of 'me' over and above 'we' in social thinking. That criminal didn't commit crime because he was Iranian as you are not a prick because you are Australian it's because what you and he do have in common is selfishness and not selflessness.
"The two are actually incompatible, in the opinion of many students of Islam." Bolt Is Bolt slipping he's actually acknowledged the nature of opinion but supports one by his fact less use of "many" There is 1.6 billion Muslims in the world with "many" differing opinions but Bolt only has a single focus a very narrow focus because he he has a preconditioned conclusion. He takes the opinion of Hirsi Ali "sharia law is among the most dehumanizing, demeaning and degrading for women ever devised by man:"Bolt avoids revealing or even explaining why of the 50 majority Muslim Countries There have been so many women Muslim leaders and MPs. Why it has been in fact in the most populous of Muslim nations. Long before Australia had its first. Why is it that Andrew Bolt leaves this hidden in his eagerness to prove Muslim women are all repressed? Does Bolt find that in Tunisia woman's the right to legal abortion since the 70s and their right to equal pay is repressive? Kurdish women fight along side men hardly an indication they are property. It's the narrow and selected focus that gives Bolt away Iran is not the center of the universe of Islam there are more than 40 nations that prove Bolt Hirsi and Lyons wrong and Bolt's refusal to acknowledge that fact just reinforces that free speech is merely his claim on the right to misinform. As much as Trump did in his claims about "did you hear what happened in Sweden"
Bolt quotes Miranda Devine for support she is the last person to argue for Andrew Bolt's form of journalism. She is totally against unverifiable fact less opinion taking the place of verifiable news.
"After last night I again wonder why conservatives go on Q&A
to be sneered at by the host, overtalked by a stacked panel and jeered
by carefully curated audience of feral haters, primed to boo."BoltThis is coming to you form Andrew Bolt whose Bolt Report has a sneering host delivering his opinion piece each night which doesn't exist on Q&A. Stacked Panel I'd say Bolt's format of Bolt and friends is what's regarded as a 'stacked panel' Bolt can't get an audience because his show needs anally tight production values allowing Bolt to cut his interviewees off if they get too clever for him. What we see here is not self promotion because that is too difficult it's pathetic act of trying to downgrade the opposition. However Andrew Bolt's fast losing friends even News Corp personnel are turning against Australia's only Trumpster.Miranda Devine, Paul Kelly and others aren't standing too close to the Andrew Bolt style of bullshit
What Bolt calls debate. "After Trump suggests a non-existent terrorist attack took place in
Sweden, supporters claim the media is covering up migrant crimes" Reported by Fox News According to Trump the Swedes don't even know what's going on. However in fact the only truth is that there has been an increase in immigration. The crime rate has dropped over the past decade and no terrorist act has occurred. Trump's White House media are in a daily scramble just trying to shore up and explain away Trumps bloopers and Andrew Bolt pretends there aren't that many. because he simply ignores them as he did with Tony Abbott he's practiced. There is no debate if there's no reality there's just mind games.
Obviously clear thinking was never on any syllabus that Bolt addressed. He wasn't the sort of person to simply drop out of university. Others noticed his lack of ability and his ego stopped him from trying and learning along the way so he failed.
Imagine if there was a vote on whether andrew Bolt was of value or not simply imagine if his blog weren't so anally moderated and his Bolt Report so strictly produced. How long would he last if it weren't for the curtain he's behind.
Wait a minute two days ago it was Bolt having a tantrum that Anna Bligh applied and was appointed. Predicting that the banks foresaw a Labor Party win. Today there seems to be some sort of turn around suggesting Bolt is confused. However you won't hear that from him. " It’s actually something of a (small) compliment to the Coalition." McCrann
