Alan Jones still scheduled for 2CC in Canberra

By johnboy - 2 October 2012 92

A quick squiz at the 2CC presenters list still shows the vile Alan Jones due to broadcast to Canberra at 11am.

The Brisbane Times has a long list of sponsors who have withdrawn their support having belatedly realised what they were associating themselves with. BT also mentions that three regional stations have stopped running the Alan Jones show.

I’ve emailed Capital Radio’s Peter Davidson for comment and will let you know when we get something.

What’s Your opinion?

If you don’t like Alan Jones bury your heads in the sand, live in an out of touch fantasy world and listen to the ABC.

Free speech?!?!? Alan Jones tends to cut people off who phone in disagreeing with his bizarre views of the world.

I was going to say if you don’t like the truth then bury your head in the sand, live in an out of touch fantasy world and listen to Alan Jones every morning.

Compared to Alan Jones fantasy of thousands of trucks disappeared by ACT Policing when his coup plot fizzled?

I’ll be noting the list of advertisers pulling out and deliberately patronising their opposition.

Bravo to 2CC for standing their ground, keeping Alan Jones on and refusing to be intimidated by the cowardly mob.

(Ignoring the fact we don’t actually have free speech in this country)

With free speech comes responsibility. I think the thing which disgusts me most about AJ, is not that he made the comments, it’s the fact he tried to weasel out of of the possible sh*t storm which was brewing all up until he was told there was an audio recording.

Just quickly, you do realise the irony in your comments stating that AJ should have a right to free speech, at the same time complaining that the “left” is simply exercising that same right?

Reason no.539 for not listening to 2CC. Possibly the best, though.

Can anyone provide us with a list of 2CC’s sponsors?

harvyk1 11:54 am 02 Oct 12

I would strongly suspect 2GB is probably loving this.

Every one of those sponsors who pull their advertising off the show will be back with a vengeance within a month or two, and meantime 2GB is getting a whole host of free advertising.

Don’t forget that people are both creatures of habit (which mean the majority of “outraged” 2GB listeners will be back within a very short amount of time, don’t discount the fact that quite a few listeners of 2GB do so simply to be outraged about stuff) and there will be some people who will now listen to 2GB to see what the fuss is about the guy (which will easily replace those listeners who where outraged enough to actually change their habits).

Some comments can’t be made up for with a quick apology. At the risk of ‘think of the children’, how could people listen to these diatribes all the time (not just Jones, but others as well) and not become less kind or tolerant towards others? I feel like I need a shower after listening to it in a taxi occasionally.

I figure if I’m paying for a taxi I get a say in what infests the airwaves. If it’s one of these stations like 2GB or 2UE, nine times out of ten I’ll ask the driver to change stations. Politely.

Some talking head on the TV last night pointed out the fact that Kylie Sandilands had his most recent controversy (of many, like Jones) about 10 months ago. At the time sponsors and advertisers dumped him, he kept quiet for a while but apparently his show has just had its highest rating ever – it is pretty clear people forget quickly.

Yep. Gross. It’s also pretty clear the people who listen to jones and Hadley are grade a morons.

The term is ‘unflushable’.

There are no shortage of farktards who support this nasty little man so i suspect he won’t be disappearing anytime soon.

Holden Caulfield 9:54 am 02 Oct 12

A week is a long time in being a radio moron … all those jumping on the dump-Jones bandwagon will be queuing up to be on his show again sooner rather than later.

Until it is 2GB dumping Jones, or even more unlikely, his thoughtless listeners growing a brain, then he won’t be going away.
