Alan Jones should increase his retirement payout

Looks like the SMH are about to cost their shareholders another defamation payout.

This morning they accused Alan Jones of advocating sexual violence against women:

… his encouragement of racism and sexual violence should be unacceptable to all sides of politics

By the time the adults got involved it got amended:

His encouragement of racism and violence against women should be unacceptable to all sides of politics.

Incitement to violence is a crime. As far as I’m aware Alan Jones has not been accused of a crime, nor has he been convicted of a crime.

I had hoped that the former Fairfax press, having destroyed their previous shareholders, might be subject to some adult supervision once they were bought out by Nine. But if so, there is no evidence of this happening.

So Alan – sue the bastards. They have it coming.

    Fairfax just couldn’t resist trying to spoil the old man’s farewell.
    They cannot control their hatred and – once again – it’s likely to cost them.

  2. Real Deal

    How ironic! The SMH, attempting to send Jones out a loser by trying to kick him in the arse ending up kicking themselves in the nuts. I hope the apology is humiliating for them.

  3. Candy

    It is difficult to understand what drives such viciousness. The SMH journalists seem incapable of normal human respect.

  4. Professor Fred Lenin

    Isnt Costello involved in the management by the new owners? Has he turned into a Lino Turnbullite Photios creature ? Theres a lot of it about , worse than the Chinese Plague .

  5. Old School Conservative

    As pointed out by Tim Blair, the catastrophic error by the SMH in trying to trample on a man who is out of the game is just wrong:
    Now that he has left his radio pulpit
    Um, no, he still has plenty of airtime until the end of the month.

  6. Infidel Tiger King

    That’s a couple of mill payout. Easy money.

  7. Megan

    I hope he goes after them with all guns* blazing.

    *Not an incitement to actual violence

    What about prosecuting Jon Faine for his open support for arson attacks on churches? Fat chance, of course: Ashton and Judd’s political whoremongers in Spring St support it too.

    I’m told by someone in a position to know that a certain journalism and media studies lecturer at that intellectual slum at UTS was moved on from Fairfax after the libel bills started to get too much even for them.

    Tom mentioned that those vomit making rags are losing money anyway. They lost their rivers of gold (apparently they had a chance to jump on the internet train in the 90s and Hilmer muffed it) so there doesn’t seem to be any business case for them to continue.

    I don’t know what Costello thinks about it all. Looks as though he’s cool with marxists turning formerly reasonable (quite a while ago now) into Thurunka and Honi Soit. As well as wasting shareholders’ money.

  11. Dianeh

    What is wrong with these people? Reinterpreting what Allan actually said doesn’t make it any more real. They are like little children with no impulse control,

    I will be disappointed if Allan doesn’t teach them a lesson.

    Few-facts are still in control of the Sydney Morning Herald’s journalistic drivel. What’s new?

    Well if it the one I am thinking of she is still writing regular columns for the SMH. She wrote a column last week, in the wake of the announcement of Jones’s retirement, celebrating his retirement but also spruiking and encouraging the activist boycott of Radio 2GB’s advertisers…..no self awareness there…here she is writing for a media outlet that depends on advertising..and yet she is writing support for a progressive neo-Marxist group that targets advertisers of media outlets. Oh and in her column last week she revealed (perhaps she has insider knowledge) that these pernicious activist groups called Sleeping Midgets and Mad Effing Witches were going to target Sky advertisers.

    The truth is that much of the costly legal and libel bills that the SMH has accrued is due to their ” progressive activist journalism” and this will only get worse…which is why I am now quite happy to leave our libel laws alone. You have to understand that the editorial published yesterday was no accident and it is perfectly in line with the progressive activist mindset….it is all about targeting, smearing, fabricating and lying about conservatives, right-wingers and anyone who doesn’t agree and won’t conform with the progressive activist mindset. We are fair game and we are to be silenced. We are all racists, nazis, hard-right evil people who have to be smeared and have our lives destroyed. I read that editorial yesterday despite being hesitant to click on anything “Nine”…..whilst it may be targeted Jones it was also an attack on Middle and working Australia and on LNP voters.

    My feelings too, he must….that editorial yesterday was no “accident”.

  15. They’re worse than neo Marxists, they’re Peronists or barbarians.

    Neo Marxism for US, capitalism and government sinecures for THEM.

    I have yet to meet a commie who doesn’t think that some animals are more equal than others.

    Typical hypocrisy of Fairfax:

    Story

    Pelosi calls Trump “morbidly obese”. Trump responds and says Pelosi has got a lot of mental problems. SMH editorialises and says “Trump did not provide any evidence for his claim.” Yet no comment about Pelosi not providing any evidence for her claim that Trump is morbidly obese – which he clearly isn’t?

    The old saying about silence denoting consent is true in this instance. Costello was mighty sensitive at anything derogatory said about him or his family, think back to the court case against Bob Ellis. That he has been extremely quiet about the SMH running riot under his watch tells me he agrees with their attacks.

    I bet he is still stewing about not inheriting the prime ministership from John Howard and conservatives must pay for it. Costello is really quite petty.

    Looks like it Crossie. The whole Howard-Costello era has not aged well.

    It’s called Progressive Leftism.

    Thanks LS for that link re Australian political families. A lot I didn’t know about. I like the Shorten-Liberal link. They really are all on the same side with very few exceptions.

  24. Roger

    Well said Roger.

    Thanks Cassie. Let me expand on it a little.

    There are fundamentally two types of people in the world – those who believe man – and hence society – is perfectible and those who don’t.

    Those who don’t want to see human beings flourish but realise there are limits to what we can attain because we are flawed creatures. They look to tradition &/or religion for moral guidance, believing that our ancestors have something of value to hand on to us which we can then hand on to our descendants. This makes for a stable albeit imperfect society which provides the best conditions for human flourishing within the limitations of human nature.

    People who believe man is perfectible want to throw off the past and forge a new society in which man and society, free of the limitations imposed by tradition and religion, will attain perfection. Believing, as they do, that this is a self-evidently noble goal, anyone who believes otherwise must be evil and therefore becomes an enemy to be hated and, if possible, destroyed. History, as well as the present travails known as the culture wars, attest to this viciousness of the prog-left.

    Roger…another brilliant comment….thank you. Even before hearing the news yesterday about the Jones editorial, I have spent the last few weeks pondering about the Mark Di Stefano “affair”…..and in the US, as I write, there is a lot of righteous commotion and furore about the sleazy activist journalism of media darling Ronan Farrow. At the end of the day it comes back to that old progressive saying…that “everything is political”. Because the left have politicised journalism (like everything else)…..those of us on the right are now “fair game” to be brought down by any means…smears, lies and fabrications. Young journalists like Di Stefano……who can write with such sincerity back in March 2020 that “journalism was all about ethics”…yet this same “ethical journalist” only a few weeks later was busted for illegally hacking into a telephone call of a rival publication and this same “ethical journalist” has spent the last few years smearing and lying about his ideological targets….calling them far-right, alt-right, nazis, racists, homophobes and all the usual assortment of smears that the left use to shut down and SILENCE their ideological opponents….Di Stefano has used his media platform to get people (like Count Dankula and Sargon of Akkad) censored or kicked off youtube, facebook and twitter. I believe that, such was Di Stefano’s lack of self awareness, that he thought he was doing nothing wrong….because he had done similar before…except this time he was made to resign…although he should have been publicly sacked. The female who wrote that editorial yesterday about Jones, in its original form, knew exactly what she was writing. She had and has zero compulsion about smearing someone like Jones.

    Journalism is dead…completely dead…hijacked by perpetual adolescents like Di Stefano, Farrow and that female SMH editorial writer. All they have is a degree in progressive activism….everything they write is through a far-left and progressive prism. And this is why Jones must take legal action….for all of us….because yesterday the SMH slimed and smeared all of us. We are all unhinged far-right nazis…according the SMH. The time for turning the other cheek is long gone.

    That’s what made Tony Abbott’s always turning the other cheek so aggravating. When the Left slimed him or another conservative, it reflects on all conservative voters. Basically letting the Left have a free for all with their viciousness.
    Alan Jones should take legal action. He must be hurt and he could get it out of his system by fighting back.

  28. Knuckle Dragger

    Typical.

    Couldn’t let him go peace after they were smacked around by him for decades. Just HAD to get a final [email protected] to the back of the neck in as he was leaving.

    And in equally typical fashion, failure to realise that in exchange for that [email protected] they were going to receive the business end of a square mouthed shovel, at speed, right across the chops.

    The latest annual report of the Australian Communications and Media Authority, two years old!, showed that it jagged $84 million from government and paid $55 million odd in salaries and benefits to 445 staff – that was four years ago. Why do these government departments find it so difficult to make timely reports? It is not as if they don’t have enough coolies to piece together so simple.

    After spending all morning listening to 2SM and 2GB, taking notes, what do 445 otherwise unemployable public servants do for the rest of the day?

    The stupid body is governed by a board of 6 old sheilas and two girlie men, who boss around four general managers, three of whom are sheilas! First its Australian Defence Ministerettes (with the obligatory enormous arks); then Australian girlie soldierettes who pretend to be blokes and line up for a penis implant at taxpayer expense so they can have it lopped off later, at taxpayer expense; then its unbelievably incompetent State premiers; State chief doctors (non-practising, card carrying communists); sobbing State Health executives paid $500,000 a year to go to water when quietly asked why they are so ill suited to serious responsibility; and now its the Get Laws and Jones Cabal Inc.

    The country is going down the gurgler and still people wonder why.
