TV Tonight reports: “The ABC has apologised to News Corp columnist Miranda Devine after Hack Live guest Clementine Ford referred to her as a c**t during last night’s live broadcast.”
If Clem didn’t want to offend, she’d wear a burqa.
But the ABCs excuse is pathetic. It’s like getting a handgrenade in for the program and playing with the pin. ‘The ABC regrets the slaughter of program staff, while every precaution was taken to guard against unexpected explosions, the ABC cannot be held responsible for when one occurs, as we do not manufacture such items.’
The ABC invited her in. The ABC played with her pin. And she blew off! Disgraceful language horrendously offensive insult.
If that’s the only adjective Ford has to comment on the fine Miranda Devine it shows what a shallow piece of work Ford is.
The Bard had a host of phrases to demean someone. Such as Ford thou art a “bootless base-court giglet” or
“impertinent clapper-clawed flax-wench“.
