Hamish’s blue tie gets the snip

Dr Mumbo isn’t sure about Hamish MacDonald’s decision to wear a blue tie during an interview with Destroy The Joint’s Jenna Price.

In part he’s not sure whether it was a good idea to wear it. And in part he isn’t sure whether what followed wasn’t a stunt.

During a six minute interview, Price explained her views on ‘menu gate’, ‘blue tie gate’ and the broader issues of misogyny in Australian culture.

But it was the last 30 seconds of the interview which caught Dr Mumbo’s attention when the scissors came out.

Still, as a journalism lecturer at UTS, Ms Price would never consent to manufacturing the news. And a respected journo and presenter like MacDonald would surely find such a thing beneath his dignity. But he does seem to be leaning in for the slice. Dr Mumbo wonders what The Truth Is?
