The Good News is he Can't be Fired Again.

Antony Loewenstein appeared on ABC TV's The Drum on Thursday. The suit is a big improvement on his earlier dress sense.

Antony spent most of the episode awkwardly waiting for them talk about Israel and when the topic turned to employment, well...

Update: Antony discusses his appearance (except for that bit which he hopes nobody noticed).
The question of racism in Australia is a live one and I argued that deep-seated mistrust of Muslims and minorities was rampant. Any more than other countries globally? Hard to say but it’s foolish to deny that media players and politicians regularly play the race card to draw votes.
The media draws votes? I'm voting for Zoo Weekly!
The Murdoch press are some of the worst offenders in this area, routinely demonising the poor and disadvantaged.
The evidence of this astonishing claim will be presented in Antony's forthcoming book, "My Making Shit Up Question". Speaking of racism, earlier in the program, Antony casually referred to Warren Mundine as a "Murdoch Pet". He stopped short of calling him Uncle Tom.
The main discussion was around Iran and its alleged nuclear weapon’s program (of which there is no evidence).
There is also no evidence that Antony knows how to use an apostrophe. I weep for his editors.
I stated that most of the mainstream media, the Zionist lobby, Israel-firsters, many politicians and commentators are now leading us to yet another Middle East conflict.
Islamic leaders specifically and openly calling for the destruction of a nation state, or Arabs shooting at each other, are merely harmless goat-herders and bear no responsibility whatsoever.

Did I really hear that answer? "I'm a freelance journalist so therefore I am not in a position to make any comment on this interesting social issue that affects the status of woman" ?

When will the ABC stop demeaning itself and us.

bloody hell there's a well rounded commentator. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. What about women's pay in Israel? Can't he comment on that?

I don't know whether it's more embarrassing when Loewenstein speaks or when he doesn't. This bloke has nothing to say.

"My Making Shit Up Question".

He he he he, excelllent.

The old 'Zionist Lobby' pony get's trotted out for a run as well. How nice.

On a 'John' note, I'm yet to see a 'Zionist/JDL script' lying around too. Anyone seen one? Outside of a truther forum or mental hospital I mean.

The reference to"shtetl rat" was primarily a reference to the man's cunnibg which of course should not be mistaken for intelligence.

He couldn't answer the women's pay question because what could he say without offending his support base among the hardcore anti-"Zionist" Muslims? A nasty sneer about women in the workplace might raise eyebrows even among the dickhead left at the ABC.

He was referring to the "nuclear weapon's program", i.e. the program which is inside the nuclear weapon. Probably a guidance program or a diagnostic program. I'm no expert but I'm sure Ant will explain it.
