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The Brisbane Times has a long list of sponsors who have withdrawn their support having belatedly realised what they were associating themselves with.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?

JB, have you heard from Capital Radio’s Peter Davidson yet? It would be interesting to know if he thinks if it is still appropriate to broadcast this hate-monger to a Canberra audience.

Who are you to decide what the whole audience wants to hear? In your opinion he is a hate-monger, but in my opinion he is a justice crusader, a hero.

But that is only MY opinion.

It’s up to the listener, not the leftard, to dictate what the listener wants to hear on the radio.

Alan Jones is a justice crusader? A hero? Surely this is a gee-up.

So youve never seen him in his cape and leotard then?

Still no reply

No real surprise. They just have to wait until the inevitable short attention spans of the media get distracted, and then business as usual.

With free speech comes responsibility.

This.

I hate to disagree because I think this man has said something completely distasteful, but what you’re saying is inaccurate. I would never personally use free speech to bully and harass like he has but free speech is free speech. You can’t say to someone “You have freedom of speech but only if you say positive things and avoid X and Y”, that’s not freedom of speech. It is your opinion that you should not use free speech to say such things, but it’s an opinion.

Freedom of speech (which we do not have) means that Jones can say something vile and low, and then the rest of us are allowed to say what we think about it. The US view is that you can be an asshole, and say asshole things, and then your listeners can say “you’re an asshole for saying that”. That’s pretty much how it works over there.

We haven’t really had that. It’s interesting to watch people rise up and take back their voice. For so long Alan Jones and Co have said “we’re speaking out for Youuuuuu!” and now people are riled enough to stand up and say “no you are not”.

And Jones and his friends term this “mob rule”. No mate, it’s actually the real voice of the people. The voice you’ve usurped for so long.
