The Bolt Report

Ten has confirmed it will launch a new Sunday morning program, The Bolt Report, hosted by Herald Sun journalist Andrew Bolt on 8 May.​

I see this as a positive move for Bolt, someone needs to be asking the tough questions esp on the frivolous Climate debate - will he have a good lineup of guests that want to the take on the tough questions?

Tried and true formula from the USA: get the loudest and most populist ratbag money can buy, and schedule a regular TV show. It'll probably go very well. I wonder if the show will go in for the mutual shouting sessions so popular on the US airwaves?

I don't doubt Bolt will ask the hard questions, but nothing so hard as his hearing.

Not a good timeslot as it will conflict with my lycra clad cycle into Carlton for a latte.

I'll record the program as I like the no-nonsense style of Andrew Bolt and at least it will be fairdinkum journalism not the crap posing as current affairs dished up to us at 6.30pm weekdays

Should be interesting. If he is to have credibility he will have to include guests with views which oppose his own. If he's not up for that, he will be laying himself very open to criticism.

He's quite watchable, and speaks well, but extremely fixed and rigid in his thinking. I think he's part aborigine also. :eek:

I would think that he would revel in having guests with views that oppose his own. But whether guests with opposing views would want to take him on is another thing...:D

It has the possibilities of being an interesting and entertaining half hour.

Absolute ratings winner for Ten really shows how bad their ratings have been traveling lately expect it to follow the US Tabloid format possibly shock jock.
Great platform for him to have his political rants and to talk over the guess who don't agree with his agenda.

His behavior on insiders is generally rude with little political intellectual insight to the political landscape I am forever disappointed when there is so much material for a right winger such as himself to work with.

I wasn't surprised at the news coming from the current case before the courts how badly and completely wrong his research was into the parents of the aborigines he was bagging.

Still hope he proves me wrong.

Interesting thought you would be all falling over yourselves with gushing praise for Bolts 1st program bring balance to the political debate.

What a flop had Latham on with Kroger, insightful analysis of the political landscape?


Yep he is a tosser.

"The Bolt Report: all Bolt, no report"

Not having seen every attempt at television current affairs in Australia, it is impossible to judge The Bolt Report the worst. But surely it comes close.

Bolt's skill is to write the outrageous and craft an agenda, often based on "facts" which are little more than fantasy.

He seemed extremely nervous, his Sympathetic NS was in overdrive, dry mouth etc.


I think his show will improve a lot over the next few weeks.

I just can't see him attracting labor politicians if he treats them poorly, so perhaps he needs to tone down in the interviews and be tough with the monologues.

Have to agree here. I almost thought reading from the autocue disrupted his natural rhythm - as you say, in a few weeks he should improve and adjust.

I think some labor politicians will go on his show, at least to defend themselves perhaps after the next several weeks. If they can convince Bolt with sensible logic on policies (and that goes for any politician not just labor ones) then they may achieve some good mileage.

We all know AGW warming is a dud and anyone spouting climate policy (esp Labor) to address the CO2 "pollution" (besides planting trees and cleaning up other real problem areas) is going to get toasted because of the dependency on budget (eg tax) to solve a non-problem.

Let's get Tim Flannery on instead, a wonderful man with insight and logic

I doubt we will see Flannery, Gillard, Swan, Combet or Ross Gaurnet on his programe. They would be too scared to tell their lies to Bolt. He would have their guts for garters.

As for Insiders I would sooner listen to Bolt than that idiot Socialist left wing extremist David Maher. That man is an ignorant monomaniac.

After attracting Mark Latham to the show, can he get that other party faithful, Kevin Rudd ?

Only came on at 4:30pm here as a repeat. Populist? Unlike global warming I suppose. All the little kiddies learning it from the Little Green Book in the schools. Challenge the orthodoxy? How's the next class down looking.

Quite. Bolt's no good, but this Bubble Boy is? The wider world is a mystery to the hapless Maher.

This is really only light entertainment basking in the ALP government's current woes.
