Paul Bongiorno never landed a punch in his decades at Channel 10. Now he says it's Australia's fault he was a joke
Paul Bongiorno was the host of Channel 10’s Meet the Press every Sunday for 16 years.
It was a joke.
Just like Bongiorno.
In the Howard years, the Labor Opposition used to queue up with the talking points to get on – knowing they’d never get a curly one.
Bongiorno's ratings were so bad that the Government just wrote the show off and ignored him as he stumbled and bumbled his way through without landing a punch that anyone cared about.
Now, he explains that it’s Australia’s fault he went soft all the time:
Laurie Oakes was on the Sunday Show on Channel 9 forever and kicked his backside in the ratings and reputation.
Mr Oakes has handed Mr Bongiorno his backside on a plate.
We've had it confirmed in retirement that Bongiorno was a committed leftist – who’s more of a twitter activist these days.
The Australian media is full of people like Paul Bongiorno.
Weak as water but quick to blame others for their lack of courage.
