Morning TV just for laughs
I disagree with Helen Razer that we (ABC people or “the white knowledge class”) are now laughing at ourselves as we watch Get Krack!n (“Kate minds”, September 9-15). Surely nobody with intellectual pretensions is watching Kochie in the morning?
No, I thought not! No, for mine, with the mocking of breakfast television we are still laughing at “the other”, in this case the aspirational bogan unaware of its tastelessness. Helen’s point about the endangerment of the white thinking class is well made though. You can feel the decline.
