Sky News host Chris Kenny says he does not “want to be told what to think by a teenage Greta Thunberg, nor do I want to be lectured by a 19-year-old right-wing equivalent” on climate issues.

Sky News host Chris Kenny says he does not “want to be told what to think by a teenage Greta Thunberg, nor do I want to be lectured by a 19-year-old right-wing equivalent” on climate issues. \n\nMr Kenny said German teenage conservative social media personality, Naomi Seibt, has emerged as the “antithesis” to Swedish environmentalist Greta Thunberg. \n\nHe said Ms Seibt - who is arguing for a “calm and realist approach to climate issues” - 'has worked out that we are not all about to die'. \n\n“So, it's not bad enough that we have to put up with all the Greta Thunberg hype, now they've come up with the alternative Greta, the anti-Greta,' he said. \n\n“This search for the next big teenage social media influencer is a bit pathetic … better for adults, young and old, to focus on a proper debate.' \n\nImage: AP

The easy solution is to do what most of us do re Chris. Ignore them. I know exactly how he feels. I don't want to be lectured to by dirtbags like Chris Kenny, Andrew Bolt, Miranda Devine, Prue MacSween, Scott Morrison, or other likeminded morons either. How do you 'unfollow' any tweet that even just mentions GretaThunberg. She's had 16mins already.

Chris seems to have a mental issue then , why cant he face intelligent people of any age or face facts , he should be sacked for being both racist and a danger to the public if real life important facts are beyond him, Greta is trying to save lives and she is 100% facing facts 🌍 Chris Kenny says a lot of stupid things. This is just another one.

I mean, say what you will about Kenny's apparent hate boner for Thunberg that I keep hearing about, I don't see any inherent issue with encouraging the public to source facts on big issues themselves instead of jumping on the general media's newest controversy or selling point. Ah, Chris never bothers with thinking at all!

tan123 Tit for tat, plus our girl for the win Well someone has to listen cause if we don't the world is doomed for our grandchildren

Greta Thunberg meets 'role model' Malala Yousafzai for the first timeMalala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg have met for the first time at Oxford University. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Joy :-) Two wonderful girls 🙂❤

Who cares what Chris Kenny thinks? OMG! Where to start.... Poor Chris. Fair enough because i could bet that Greta is one of many who have absolutely no interest in his opinions Whi cares what Kenny thinks....seriously get a grip Every day you have a new tweet out about Chris Kenny getting himself into a lather over a teenage girl. It's getting weird Sky News.

He doesn't have to listen. Did that ever occur to him? Ok boomer It feels more & more like Chris Kenny targets Greta so often because he's irritated that he can never beat his own kids in a debate Fck her! Simple!

Who knew? Thanks for that 'news' Sky! I don’t want to be told what I can and cannot be told about. And we won’t be told what to think by an old man who should be in a straight jacket rather than a right-wing abuse junkie... Hey guys, you seem to only have the one photo of Greta in your library. Feel free to use this one in the future. 👍

Has Daisy been told? And the irony is Chris Kenny and his colleagues tell everyone how to live, what to think and who to vote for. Outrage clickbait generators Did the wind change she’s always pulling that face Kenny prefers crusty old media moguls tell him what to think. That is because the information she has, you know, science does not conform to Fido's RWNJ view of the world. Sad bitter old man. And boring af.

Right on

Australia's women's struggles adding spice to Twenty20 World CupThat Australia's women's cricket team is struggling for its best form is not in doubt but the lack of form is making the tournament much more interesting, if nothing else.

Greta’s only claim to fame in the future will be the award for the most “over acted” act! so cringe, leaves me in disbelief that people applaude this rubbish! No you don’t Chris. You’re just a “grumpy old chap who has nothing to contribute”. Stick to that. Chris will only be told what to do by other RWNJ’s, what a complete tosser he is.

Chris is very sure of his own opinions: he got his gig with Rupert by being willing to project his lack of thought and reflection, with impunity, and echo the worst impulses of human nature. Well done, Dogbotherer. Nor, unfortunately, does he want to face the reality of catastrophic AGW. Fido WOOF WOOF

Whenever Chris Kenny speaks about Greta Thunberg he puts his increasing fragility on display. Someone at Sky needs to exercise their duty of care and check that Chris is OK. EnoughOfGreta She is insulting the intelligence of the public How many times to we have to listen to what Chris Kenny says about teenagers? I don't care!

Your kids will grow to lecture you.

Calls for Australia to 'get involved' in Assange extradition trial | Sky News AustraliaBarrister Greg Barns says “there is still room and time' for Australia to 'get involved' in the Julian Assange extradition case.\n\nThe Wikileaks founder underwent the first day of his extradition trial on Monday where he is facing charges relating to the publication of classified documents.\n\nMr Barns told Sky News Assange’s crime was to reveal “the war crimes of the US” but he “is an Australian citizen facing an effective death penalty for that fact”.\n\n“There is now some greater urgency in the matter and more people now saying why doesn’t the Australian government get involved,' he said. \n\nHe also said the report of secret recordings of Mr Assange were “an egregious breach that ought to be concerning to all Australians” because “it showed a level of misconduct on the part of the US”.\n

Then don't; why do we hear this as 'news'. Like canned laughter from 80s sitcoms, are we supposed to parrot these unsupported opinions? Climate so bad it’s starting to distort her face howdareyou Where's your pearls Cwissy? They must be getting worn from all that clutching at them 🙄 Chris Kelly obviously thinks that he has nothing to learn from the young generation. Dissapointing. Let both young girls debate. Great to see young people having a go.

No sane person would she is a puppet to the UN and others regardless of what she says no way would she have the education or knowledge she goes on about she is being cued some ways feel sorry for her to be used in such a way but is the low way they have become to tell the story Who cares? I don’t want to be told what to think by a 55 year old right wing shock jock but here we are.

Maybe don't be so overly sensitive Chris? She's a smart kid, with a voice. You don't have to agree. But toughen up. All her words are from the Adults that gives her scripts to spread their agenda Sky News Chris Kenny says whatever fits to his allegiance to Murdoch, mining lobby and the Coalition. timetomodernise getoverit LogicOverHandshakes

Espionage activities are 'reaching a high point' in Australia | Sky News AustraliaExecutive Director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute Peter Jennings said the operation of foreign spies on Australian soil recently uncovered by ASIO indicates that our political independence” could be seriously compromised.\n\nOn Monday ASIO Director-General of Security Mike Burgess said a sleeper agent had been operating in Australia for years, gathering intelligence on dissidents before he was caught by the intelligence organisation and thrown out of the country.\n\n“What Mr Burgess did was lift the veil on a number of intelligence practices which will come as news to a lot of people in the broader community,” Mr Jennings told Sky News Host Chris Kenny. \n\n “These types of espionage activities have been happening in Australia for many years” but they are “reaching a high point at this moment,” he said. \n\nMr Jennings believes it to be “critically important” that Australians understand the significance of the threat that has been uncovered by ASIO and don’t think of it as “some type of James Bond fiction”.\n\nWhile the government has not publicly attributed the espionage operation to any particular nation, Mr Jennings said “China is the biggest strategic problem that we face at the moment”. \n But spy for what? Technology? Soil? Weather? Energy? Not sure what the spies look for. Why not turn the guy and have him feed back ambigious info implying other suspected spies had turned....then kick back & watch the show. No point outing him & deporting the guy. Hell just be replaced by another agent. It wouldnt be hard to make him afraid of going back to china.

She is not a brazen young husky, so old Fido ain't interested? That's why we turn off Sky...we won't be lectured by a boring mediocrity like Kenny And I don't like being told anything by my Cardiologist or my Hairdresser but I do listen to my Cardiologist Sky. Please stop making Chris Kenny tend. You know this is not news.

Well , let's hear what she has to say on a daily basis. OR is the FAKE NEWS MEDIA going to Suppress this person? teenagers be quiet tan123 We are thinking of installing an outdoor pool. Weather is warm enough these days, every cloud and all that Because Chris Kenny might actually learn something... auspoI

Then don't listen to the silly little twit! When I don't want to be lectured to by Chris Kenny I turn him OFF! 'lectured by a 19 year old right-wing equivalent' Weird to see Chris Kenny attacking the TheIPA! Who cares what he thinks No one!

Australia has 'on more than one occasion' deported spies: Peter Dutton | Sky News AustraliaHome Affairs Minister Peter Dutton confirms foreign spies have been deported for operating inside Australia and says, “we’ll continue to do it”.\n\nASIO announced it uncovered a sleeper agent running a spy ring inside Australia and revealed there are more foreign agents operating in Australian than at the height of the Cold War.\n\nMr Dutton also confirmed the foreign countries of origin of these spies.\n\n“We are talking about China, we’re talking about Russia, we’re talking about Iran, and we’re talking about other nations,” he said.\n\nThe home affairs minister told Sky News host Paul Murray, Australia is a “a target for foreign interference,” highlighting how in some cases “secrets (were) stolen from law firms representing Australian firms” in negotiations with foreign countries.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia Shouldn't even be here if your doing your job properly. I thought those three baboons outside RPA today looked like they were up to something..... What about Liu

Who? Couldn’t agree more. tan123 Naomi Seibt is brilliant. She’s encouraging debate. Awesome! tan123 Kenny has his head set in concrete. Never an abstract thought. tan123 Kenny sounds like a spoiled child. Don't tell me what to do. Greta climateillness Bugger Kenny. Greta is a pawn used by those who profit from this ‘climate emergency’ were all going to die narrative. It’s sad but true.

Newsflash: Boomer won’t listen to anyone younger than them 🙄 How about you listen to the scientists then? Chris Kenny, is an idiot. How about cracking a book then Chris Kenny? Or listening to experts? There is no debate you fool! But Kenny is fine with telling us what to do and think.... Sigh. Back to day 0 of not hearing Kenny’s name...it was a great run whilst it lasted.

Kind enough to explicitly promote her in a way that feeds your hounds though. And we don't want to be lectured by Chris Kenny!!!!!! Warning: Chris goes on to call for 'proper debate' 👍Bombastic lecturing rights should be restricted to boomer media gobshites

I agree Chris I could less what Greta thinks about anything on the planet auspol
