Australian Education Minister Slays Buffy. In a move designed to preach to his conservative choir, Brendan Nelson compares Buffy to Big Brother and calls both dumb.
"All students need to be taught contemporary literacy, film and television, but we are in an environment where increasingly the kids are studying Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Big Brother instead of Jane Austen and Bronte," he told The Weekend Australian.
Oh, is that right, Mr Nelson? People are studying Big Brother? Are you sure you're not confusing that with "1984"?
He's been using this example for a while now and no one in the media is calling him on it. Big surprise there.
