Well done.Why does Bolt do it? Is it to curry favour with the Howard regime or does he really believe the rubbish he writes and mouths? In his frequent defence of the indefensible he strikes me as fearful of change and fearful of the future. He hectors and bullies and to me the impression he conveys is someone lacking in courage.
In my opinion he is in the same league as Alan Jones and lacks ability to bring the reasonable person to his point of view.He reinforces the prejudices of the converted and rails against those who question his soppy and polemical journalism. Its a fair bet that when the tide changes Bolt's voice will no longer be fashionable or required.
Last year on the ABC program, The Insiders,he was silly enough to assert that there was nothing published and no research to prove that the TNI was conducting a program of repression, amounting to genocide, against the West Papuans.

Bolt belted? Did he reply or did he do the usual cowardly thing, ignore knowledgable critics?

Of course, this is hardly the first time that Bolt has misrepresented the facts in order to pretend his inanities have evidential basis. There's a chapter on Bolt in a recent book called _The War on Democracy_ (by Lucy and Mickler). It's a devastating critique of Bolt's lamentable "journalism" when it comes to reporting the "facts" on the aftermath of Chernobyl (not too mention his revisionist view of Australia's white-Indigenous relations).

What a dopey post followed by the usual suspects lambasting Andrew Bolt who is currently on holidays.

I'm with Andrew Bolt and good on him for exposing Al Gore whose ideas will not pass the test of time.

Its amazing how much the loony left have in common with Islam. They preach fear, hate those who expose their half truths and then use what they call science to back up highly suspect theories. No wonder they love hollywood movies so much.

Heh, the last two posters don't seem to actually have any interest in the facts presented in the article. Argue the points, not the people, guys! You may look a little...well...stupid, otherwise.
