Customer Reviews

Very biased selection of interviewees and ultra right wing

Counterpoint is the ABCs surrender to the pressures of the Federal Governement. The presenter is a well known Right wing writer who asks loaded questions and sometimes pretends to be questioning the views of the right wing (often US interviewees) If you have any doubts just check how many of his interviewees are from Mining industry supported groups and how many challenge the whole idea of greenhouse effect. The session should be called "One-Eyed" It certainly presents no "Counterpoints"

In defence of Counterpoint

Respect to Aunty for putting Counterpoint in the Monday 1810 time slot, just when an LNL listener might tune in (another favourite show). Be willing to use your brain and you can quite enjoy Counterpoint. The opinions expressed may not always be agreeable but you are challenged to think the argument through.


This program is one of the most stimulating and interesting programs on the ABC. I listen to a wide range of ABC podcasting as I cycle to and from work evryday and Michael Duffy's presentation is often a program I listen too more than once. Well done Michael. John Drawin
