Rightwing politicians and media commentators had a field day.
Derryn Hinch has long played the "nice guy" image. He's not nice. He is an opportunistic bastard who is prepared to sell the soul of this country for his pension as a senator. He should be thrown out as soon as possible. The only thing he understood about truth, freedom and justice is ... ratings (TV and radio).
