Airbnb Ambushed by Radio Host as Talk Turns to Tax

As all actors know, it’s one thing working with a script but having to ad lib when things go wrong is the true test of any performer – or PR flack.  So that was the test for Airbnb mouthpiece Brent Thomas when ABC talk host Jon Faine went off script in an interview on his top-rating Victorian show last Friday. It was ostensibly about potential legislative changes on the Mornington Peninsula to curtail Airbnb party houses but Faine was more interested in the amount of tax the multi-national pays. Thomas found that adopting the party line and avoiding the question can have unintended consequence. Well worth a listen: Faine v Airbnb.
