Backstory: Insiders host Barrie Cassidy reflects on the 50 years since he started in journalism – Television – ABC News

“I never had the ambition in my mind that we would become the pre-eminent Sunday morning program. In fact, there is no program on daytime TV in Australia that reaches 500,000 and 600,000 viewers [as Insiders does now], and that’s surprised me.”

In the 50 years since, he has covered politics for ABC News and current affairs programs, worked as a correspondent in Washington and Brussels and, in the 1980s, experienced politics from the inside as senior media adviser to then prime minister Bob Hawke.

In an interview with Backstory editor Natasha Johnson, Cassidy reflected on his career and shared some insights on political reporting and interviewing. Here are some of the highlights:

The Politics of Mistakes

Afghan Muslim arrested over New York bombings

What you won’t hear from Andrew Bolt is that the cultivation of anger is an obvious product of mistakes and sorry doesn’t cut it. Nor does Trump’s rhetoric after having killed 90 Syrians not to mention the 7 Afghanis , just another Oops from the red white and blue Australia UK and France included

It seems life is no guessing game for Andrew Bolt. “the police took in a man for questioning”  becomes he was “arrested over the NY bombings” and now has to prove his innocence. The Golum Andrew Bolt has stuck it head up above the surface of sewerage again to comment.

 According to Andrew in Australia only the white employed middle and upper class citizens are deserving of British justice, innocent until proven guilty. The rest are guilty even though not arrested or charged.  If they are taken in for questioning or assisting police  they must first prove their innocence. Bolt and his band of travelers reminds me of the Trumpians. Not your average Trump supporter though  but more like the calibre of Eddie  a” how dare you call me a deplorable bitch”  and “I’m going with the world’s best  business man” even though he received $900 mill in Corporate Welfare

The US with the help of Australia has recruited Syrians to add to their permanently guilty list having oops bombed and killed 90 of their family and friends  and a further 7 in Afghanistan with more to come without a shadow of doubt. The Saudis are presently dropping made in the USA bombs on the Yemenis with many Oopses occurring there as well but which we won’t be told of. As far as Bolt is concerned ‘sorry ‘should be enough for these mistakes made by our boys in the red white and blue. What more do the Syrians and Aghanis want blood?
