Interview with Jean Kittson

Comedian, writer, and social commentator Jean Kittson has the ability to distil complex ideas into commonsense. Jean is one of the national treasures in conversation with Mandy Nolan and Fiona O’Loughlin at No Eggs for Breakfast, a comedic chat themed around life beyond fertility!

Bernard Hinchcliffe, Mullumbimby

Thank you for supporting acknowledgement of climate change. Your father is all about bums on seats. An example of this is Sky News. He signs up living entities who have a large following.

An example would be Paul Murray and Allen Jones. Lets say they average 50,000 viewers per night. A survey finds that each viewer spends $10 per day on advertised products. Consider that each show is on 300 days a year. Yearly viewer spending owing to advertising would be 150 million dollars.

Management shows these figures to advert companies. Let’s say they make 30 million per show. Mr Murray and Mr Jones agents also show these figures to management.

People ask why Sky is a bit toxic towards the lefties. There’s 150 million reasons why.
