× We have many talented writers here and we all enjoy getting passionate about some of our pet peeves (eg, Derryn Hinch, reality TV shows, Australians behaving badly, McDonald's food ... anything). Just remember: "what ye shall sow, so shall ye reap" - in other words, be prepared to take lots of criticism! What better title could one give this than ... the Soapbox?

Media Watch on ABC telly last night spent some time on discussing the Matthew Johns story. Here's a link to the MW transcript:

www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s2573895.htm

Seems to me from a brief glance at the transcript that the 4 Corners program was nothing more or less than a male-bashing exercise (inspired by who knows what).

The Four Corners program has released a statement on the Matthew Johns program

www.abc.net.au/4corners/content/2009/s2575275.htm

I think the amount of public discussion this program has generated, has given cause to the producer and journalist behind it to ponder their actions.

Yep, Tush. And, hopefully, some of the young women who may have the idea that it would be "cool" to hang around some of these blokes might learn something, too. There's lessons for lots of people.
