Anything John Hewson can do on Gruen Nation, Mark Latham can do… better?
That remains to be seen. But we’ll find out next week when the former ALP leader files a story for 60 Minutes.
Latham, who was frequently confronting journalists and cameramen many years ago, interviewed Bob Brown yesterday before observing a press conference.
“Having been there himself, Mark’s intimate knowledge of campaigning will give our viewers an honest, unvarnished insight into what’s really happening because for all the talk of realness it’s all turned a bit unreal,” a statement from the network said.
But of course decent journalism is never about the interviewer, but the subject. Is that how this one will be pitched to us all?
It airs on August 15.
