The left may think of themselves in a positive light as defenders of the faith or something, but their disgusting behaviour over Alan Jones is beyond contempt and genuinely a matter for serious concern. This is from The Age.
Macquarie Radio Network executive chairman Russell Tate said ‘the nature, tone and volume of the reaction to Jones’ remarks, and in particular the threats being made through social media to companies advertising in Jones’ program and the disruption being caused to their businesses, have made it necessary for MRN to call some “time out”.’
‘Some simple facts need to be acknowledged.
‘There is almost universal agreement that Jones’ remarks were unacceptable, wrong and inexcusable. Alan himself acknowledged that from the moment he first advised me of them. He immediately arranged a media conference to state that publicly and apologise to the Prime Minister,’ he said.
‘Although the remarks were not made on 2GB, our position from the outset has been that a personal, unconditional apology was a necessary and appropriate response. I encouraged Alan to repeat the apology on 2GB when he first returned to air last Tuesday morning following his media conference. His apology was unambiguous and unconditional.’
Mr Tate said the threats to boycott Jones show were coming ‘almost entirely from people who do not listen to Alan Jones or 2GB at all – probably never have done and never will.’
What 2GB will now do is run Alan Jones without ads until further notice. Jones did still have advertisers but Macquarie is going to shield them from the derangement that is the specific province of the left. The leaders of the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics and the members of the National SOCIALIST German Workers’ Party were all made up of these very types.
