The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson has been called out online after saying that Australia’s COVID-19 situation is a bin fire”.
The Project has been covering the pandemic coming up for two years. So it makes sense their hosts have such strong opinions.
First, Steve Price kicked off over potential travel restrictions and said, “Fancy these (people) over there callings us dirty, filthy, Aussie Covid carriers.”
Then, The Project hosts were discussing New Zealand’s new restriction that COVID cases have to isolate for 24 days and news.com.au reported Wilkinson said, “‘If that doesn’t give you an indication that Jacinda Ardern has looked across the ‘ditch’ at our bin fire and gone, ‘Not doing that!’ Wow.”
Now, Wilkinson has been called out on Twitter as people feel it’s a privileged position to be okay with such a long time isolating.
Ex-deputy chief health office, Dr Coastworth has been retweeting tweets that slam the television host – passive-aggressive but powerful.
Below are the tweets Dr Coastworth retweeted.
“Imagine being the new migrant forced to pack the micro-herbs in a Delta-struck warehouse to be shipped out to Wilkinson’s local gourmet shop – an essential service – and then return at the end of your shift to a crowded apartment with no backyard?” https://t.co/WLTYUY9qSU

The problem Lisa Wilkinson has is she only ever criticises one political party, which renders her opinion about as useful as a Sky News host.
It does however make her more popular than someone like Waleed Aly who fearlessly critiques both sides of the political spectrum

Lisa Wilkinson is more than welcome to isolate herself – I would suggest no outside contact so no media appearances – for 24 days. Indeed 24 days is not safe enough – make it 24 monthshttps://t.co/CojOd9tQf7
