The media is full of Alan Jones’ non-apology.
His "apology" if anything reveals him as a silly obsessed old man. Obsessed with himself - that is. Why does any journalist give this shrill old Queen the time of day?
Perhaps they’re suffering from collective amnesia. They’ve forgotten that he was a strong supporter of Pauline Hanson. They’ve forgotten his adventures in London. They’ve forgotten that he made up stories reflecting badly on the ACT police when there weren’t as many trucks at his convoy of no confidence as he’d commanded.
They’ve forgotten his innumerable brushes with the courts. They’ve forgotten that he was largely responsible for the Cronulla riots. They’ve forgotten his unsuccessful venture into television.
They’ve forgotten his comments in 2000 called “outrageous and offensive” by the NSW Administrative Appeals Tribunal. It found that Jones had breached racial vilification provisions of the Anti-Discrimination Act when in April he made comments about an Equal Opportunity Tribunal award to an Aboriginal woman who had been discriminated against by a Dubbo real estate agent.
They’ve forgotten that he makes a living out of hate and vilification.
Perhaps they should close the loop and ignore him completely. This is standard treatment for an Id-obsessed child.
