Its about his interview with Lumumba back when Heritier fist raised his allegations of racist treatment at Collingwood.

The full interview was quite broad, allowing Lumumba the opportunity to tell his story, but it also attacked his story. When it was cut together for broadcast it basically appeared to be a Collingwood FC PR piece. And then ended with Helliar and Aly's final editoral comments post interview where they questioned Lumumba's credibility.

"The report was instigated after Lumumba made damning claims about enduring a “culture of racist jokes” and being nicknamed “Chimp” while playing for the Magpies.

Aly interviewed Lumumba for an episode of the popular Channel 10 show, during which the defender’s alleged nickname was discussed.

The Project panellist Peter Helliar questioned the authenticity of Lumumba’s allegations, saying at the time “it would be really helpful if we heard more detail, especially with the nickname”.

The comedian also claimed Lumumba risked “smearing an entire club” if his story could not be verified."

there plenty of credability issue's with Lumumba's story, If you took the money out of the equation you wonder if he would even care considering the back ground to the story. I do find it very strange that ex team mates dont seem to be sticking by him and i think the default position of his ex team mates would be to say nothing because maybe if they told the truth or what they think is the truth then they would be labelled racist or crucified by the media like they always do.

Whilst The Project is vomit inducing, Hellier is as funny as cancer and Waleed is Waleed, I have no problem with their line of questioning. They were simply asking some questions about the validity of some Lamumbas claims. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

In what world are we living where Waleed Ali is now being labelled a racist? FMD.

He’s not being accused of racism is he?

No, he and Hellier are being accused of questioning Lumumba's credibility as part of a Collingwood PR campaign. Their actions are not surprising given Eddie's power in the media.
Hellier is a Collingwood supporter, Aly is not. Surely as part of journalism you ask probing questions? You don't take everything at face value? You get the opposing view? Far out. I'd be 99% sure Waleed was on Lamumba's side. Claims that Eddie got to him seem far fetched.

Waleed is part of the machine man. He knows how to play the game. Side by side he stuck together to uphold the magpie name.

I'm not saying the criticism of Waleed is valid. I suspect that CH10 took the action they did simply to minimise the risk of any of the Eddie racist taint sticking to them.

Eddie didn't need to "get to him". Anyone working in the media in Vic would know who Eddie is and what happens to people who cross him.

Waleed is only ever on Waleed's side.

there are a lot of people that believe black people cannot be racist because they are black, these are most probably the same people accusing him of being racist because those same people usually assume all black people hate white people because how could you not.

Again, Lamumba was making unsubstantiated claims and Waleed was simply questioning him on them. As a journalist should.

Look at the Target audience for the Project. It ain't Boomer Queenslanders. Its millennial women and thd Clique. We aren't talking Sky News here. Aly's questions were completely valid.

Hellier is a below average comedian who realised the only way he can make it on media street is to be a pandering apologist to everything, that suddenly make him a credible opinionist who was once a funny guy, well thats the game he's trying to play.

Your anti-Lamumbaness has you defending Aly and the project.

I weep for the old Popo.

Speaking of Aly... whatever happened to his over-produced, right-on-point-if-not-a-few-days-late opinion pieces telling all and sundry how to think?

He was over everything for a brief moment and now he's vanished into the hedge a la Homer.

What happen Waleed?
Thank god for that, ******* hate that campaigner. He's now been around long enough that he's becoming the villain. May it continue.
