SO SOLLY

Carl Cameron's weak office jokes drove leftists into a frenzy. Mistakenly published at the Fox News website, his comments were seized on as demonstrating profound bias. So what are we to make of Australian radio presenter Ross Solly's partisan outburst?

Listeners to ABC 936 in Hobart were chilling out to Jet's tune Look What You've Done during the Tim Cox program yesterday morning, when the song suddenly dropped from the airways and a familiar voice was heard to remark: "I tell you what I do know this country is doomed for the next three years; absolutely doomed!" It was quickly back to Jet before Cox introduced his next guest, ABC sport commentator Ross Solly, on the line from Canberra. An obviously embarrassed Solly tried to suggest his reference to three years of doom was a jibe at Coxie's tenure on Tassie's prime radio show.

Ross was probably being frustrated by the overwhelming amount of Liberal party supporters in the ABC.That was why he felt the need to be so adamant about his views,a voice in the wilderness.
Yeah that's it.
What's the weather like on earth these days?

In the Cameron piece, the Kerry supporter who complained was Noah Winer. Ahhh, a winer eh, but of course you are.
