MICHAEL DUFFY BUILDS HIMSELF A GHETTO

Auntie's token non-left commentator, who begins his program Counterpoint on May 17, 4.00pm eastern time, is defining himself into irrelevance.

According to his own promos, Duffy is going to present 'unpopular' points of view. So making it easier for Radio National's listeners to dismiss him.

Presenting way-out points of view is what RN does for a living, but the rest of them pretend theirs is the only reasonable point of view.

Switch off that cement mixer, Michael. You're standing in the pour.
