Don’t worry, Laurie won’t read this, either

Three things surprise me about Laurie Oakes’ backhander today:

While Oakes watches the ABC’s Insiders for professional reasons, he says he won’t watch Andrew's new program on Ten. “A lot of people like that sort of show, but it’s not my cup of tea. I don’t want to see Andrew and two of his mates talking about stuff. I know Andrew’s views on most things, anyway.”

First, it’s odd that Oakes assumes my show will be worth watching.

Second, that false assumption suggests Oakes' comment that "A lot of people like that sort of show" must also be wrong.

Third, for Oakes to claim he knows my “views on most things” suggests its easy to guess my views on most things.
