Quote of the Day: Boethius’ Verdict on Q&A

0

imageThe XYZ Quote of the Day for Thursday, October 8 goes to, well, The XYZ. ¬†We thought this line from our resident scribe, Boethius, in which he succinctly summarises what makes the ABC’s Q&A so awful, and what could potentially make Channel 9’s The Verdict so good, was so apt that it deserved an extra run.

“(T)reating the viewers and the readers like idiots and talking down at them never constituted good politics and was never much of a recipe for generating ratings.”

Boethius, we salute you.

XYZ

David has studied history and political science at Melbourne University. His thesis was written on how the utilisation of Missile Defence can help to achieve nuclear disarmament. His interest in history was piqued by playing a flight simulator computer game about the Battle of Britain, and he hopes to one day siphon the earnings from his political writings into funding the greatest prog-rock concept album the world has ever seen.
