RiotACT media watch

By johnboy - 25 September 2008 16

First the bad news…

2xx listeners and audio file downloaders will have to live without my dulcet tones this Friday. Marianne is holidaying at a secret sun-kissed locale and her replacement has shown no interest in giving up his precious airtime to the likes of us. If it’s something you feel strongly about then by all means let 2xx know, otherwise I get to start drinking earlier tomorrow and my weekend will not include audio editing (not a big job I know but it still takes time). Back next week as far as I know.

Now for the good news…

We’re going to be on ABC Stateline this Friday night. Unfortunately it’s a bit male-skewed as female rioters with an interest in politics and a willingness to go on camera were a bit hard to identify in advance.

Anyway, 7.30pm, ABC, and we’ll make a point of recording it and YouTubing it for those of you enjoying your Friday night drinking. (Unless I come across like a tit, or they get my name wrong in a super, in which case we shall forget the whole thing ever happened.)

What’s Your opinion?

Quote:
DR FOSKEY: …Therefore, I am going to quote a thread from the RiotACT website.
Mr Mulcahy: There’s an authoritative source.

Tagline:
“an authoritative source.” Richard Mulcahy on the subject of RiotACT, 27 August 2008, Hansard of the Sixth Legistlative Assembly (page 3735).

I can tell you that I am not surprised that RiotACT is saying what a terrible idea it is

Seconded 😉

Some new possible taglines from there… courtesy of our mate Dicky Mulcachy.

As I say, Dr Foskey relied on RiotACT. It was one of the more pathetic speeches I
have heard given in this place.

I can tell you that I am not surprised that RiotACT is saying what a terrible idea it is.

It has been pointed out that the above link may not work correctly for everybody.

So, thanks to the wonders of modular information webs, you can actually enjoy the google cache version in html if needed.

Was my name mentioned?

If not, why not?

Skidbladnir 4:56 pm 25 Sep 08

Of that version, pages 8-25 are where we come in and liven things up, but 3732 to 3749 are the Hansard numbering.

Otherwise its pretty dull day in the Assembly.

Maternity wards don’t have wireless access?

Skidbladnir 4:31 pm 25 Sep 08

Not quite Media Watch, but RiotACT gets used as an anti-Mulcahy amendment submission in Hansard from August 27.

(I mention it because not only do I get quoted, but a number of us do too)

I’ve been a bit busy having a baby. But I’m back ….

Granny 1:34 pm 25 Sep 08

I make it onto WIN news quite enough, thankyou very much! Quackers is frequently embarrassed at school.

: )

JB, when it comes to female posters who have an interest in politics and aren’t afraid to say what they think, I surprised granny isn’t the first name to leap to mind 🙂

Granny 1:22 pm 25 Sep 08

I always enjoy the 2XX spot. I never get to hear it live, but I always have a listen. It’s a lot of fun, and I often find myself laughing along, so I will miss it this week. Will probably not ring 2XX though.

I am looking forward to the Stateline piece. Very exciting!!

: )

Well you’ve been so quiet lately!

Unfortunately it’s a bit male-skewed as female rioters with an interest in politics and a willingness to go on camera were a bit hard to identify in advance.

I wasn’t asked!

Marianne 10:43 am 25 Sep 08

awwww… I’m so sorry! 🙁
I’ll be back next week! and will promise not to take any more holidays anytime soon! 😛
haha
