PVO: Former Senator Stephen Conroy joining us
here at Sky News. There’s the media release that went out.
KK: Indeed, welcome aboard Stephen it’s fantastic to have you joining us here, and he does
join as the media release points out Pete- PVO: I tell you if we got that Australia
Channel contract then he’d be having an even bigger role here but unfortunately
he kind of put the boot into that KK: But I like they say Stephen does join here

PVO [agressively]: Why are you an insider and I’m not!? KK: That’s a really good question
PVO: Hang on a second-
KK: That list is an interesting one- PVO: Hang on, that’s a list of our insiders?
KK: That’s a list of Sky News-

[both laugh] KK [sings]: One of these things just doesn’t belong here
[laughs] KK: I’m just saying-
PVO: You’re gonna sing for us now? How is David Speers not a political insider?
How am I not a political insider? This is offensive! They’ve got Peta Credlin, no no,

to consider himself a political insider! KK: I’m gonna own it! I’m a political insider!

PVO: I’m ringing David as soon as I get off air-
KK: Oh he’d be delighted! [laughs] PVO: I bet he’s as offended as I am!
KK: I bet he is! You know, Kieran Gilbert
PVO: Well K.G. as well! No question! Tom Connell, he’s easily offended!
KK: Sam Maiden! Sam Maiden! PVO: Sam Maiden!! Jesus, she’s-
KK: I would have thought she was an insider!
PVO: Oh yeah she’s always breaking yarns, she’s…
I don’t think anyone wants her as an insider but she gets in there!
KK: Oh yeah that’s right, indeed, indeed. So there you have it!
