Half the reason why I've lost faith in television.
I don't always watch The Project, but when I do I have to change the channel.
To be perfectly blunt, all of their jokes are just not funny and they just laugh amongst themselves at how amusing they are.
They talk down to a majority of their guests and make fun at their own expense. God help you if you go against you, the hosts will gang up of you and smack you down with how wrong you are. I will say that there have been a few instances where they actually have been very respectful to some of their guests. One year after the Lindt Café siege, Tori Johnson's sister Camille bravely appeared on the show and spoke about how proud she was of her brother Tori who died in the siege. As she was being interviewed, you could hear a pin drop in the studio and there was not a dry eye amongst the audience. And good on Peter Helliar for giving Camille a comforting hug, something all of Australia wanted to do.
Waleed Aly lives up to his title as a flog. As profanity is strictly forbidden on here I will describe Waleed as smug, arrogant, and condescending. He is a major part of the reason why I dislike this show.
I have nothing against Carrie Bickmore, despite her annoying laugh. She is upfront, honest and unashamedly wears her heart on her sleeve.
Peter Helliar has his moments here and there, but I'm used to his antics on Rove Live.
The Project is half the reason why I've lost faith in television. Save for a few shows here and there, I refuse to watch The Project.
