Eddie and Channel 9 take the greatest hits
How fast did Channel 9 lose its iron grip on the Australian TV market?
Eddie Everywhere - the CEO of Kerry Packer's Earthly Kingdom - Channel 9 - and host of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" - has got some Packer traits and not others. He sees no conflict of interest hosting the AFL version of the Footy Show while he is President of Collingwood. Very Kerry.
He talks tough. "I've got a long memory," hs said in response to being Watergated about his comments on 'boning' Jessica Rowe. Threatening, bluffing, huffing, puffing, now he's got to blow their houses down.
But the only house that appears to be losing bricks is the House of Packer.
Eddie Maguire looks like a Shakespearian tragedy about to happen. Hubris hurls him down.
Eddie's not tough. He only talks tough.
I saw many of his bullyboy type at the Christian Brothers school I went to. Eddie is an old boy of the CBC.
