The Bolt Report cancelled
Andrew Bolt's TV show has been axed.
Right-wing racist Andrew Bolt's television show The Bolt Report has been axed by Channel Ten, according The Australian.
Ten reportedly charged News Corp about $2 million a year for using its facilities to produce and broadcast the Sunday morning political discussion program. The program was not included in Ten's lineup for 2016.
Bolt launched the show in May 2011, but it never enjoyed high ratings or attracted lucrative advertising revenue. It was consistently beaten in the ratings by the ABC's Insiders, averaging just 113,000 viewers compared to 287,000 who watched Insiders.
