    The Project's Resident Idiot Asks The Hard Questions Of Dana

    Firstly, The Project is a left wing TV show devoid of character and intellect, however it makes up for that dearth with smug superiority and a penchant for pandering to identity politics. Secondly, Waleed Aly is the pinnacle of those characteristics.

    Anyway, he's been slammed for this interview with Dana White in which he tries to be a real journalist pressing the real issues, with his pretty but rapidly aging co-presenter Carrie Bickmore throwing in a jibe or two in order to attempt to remain relevant. I was genuinely expecting to hear the phrase "human cockfighting" and I'm not sure if I'm glad or disappointed that I didn't.

    Seriously, though, this show must be dying, the internet is out there, if you watch The Project you really need to have a long hard look at yourself.

    I'm going to guess this is more taking any available opportunity to **** on The Project. Which for the record I'm not really against. *Edit* not against shitting on The Project. Feel like that gave the impression I wasn't against the show...

    I used to think channel 10 was at least slightly less sensationalist than 9 and 7, but the Project has swayed me against that opinion.

    Honestly I tend to avoid most news programs. Although I do have Sunrise on of a morning as I get ready for work, purely for some background noise. They at least let me know the headlines overnight, and my son's morning squeals drown out most of the other nonsense they go on about.

    I couldn’t care less if someone wants to watch a show.

    Read about the questions Waleed threw at White. I immediately (and probably unfairly) thought that Waleed was only interested because of the religious angle.

    But I also do enjoy when journalists and presenters cross lines set by the interviewee or try it on with their guests. You want screen time, then be prepared to face the lowest common denominator.

    What the hell is "The Project"?
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    Yeah. It is not like Dana white could really be considered the victim in an interview. He is big enough and ugly enough to handle himself.

    If they had thrown some cancer patient under the bus. I would have a different view.
