They weren't inciting cyber bullying - they simply wished to get a point across to advertisers that their brands were being tarnished by association with that scum bag, Alan Jones, and that the public does not appreciate having a nasty little weasel profiting from vitriolic rants. Advertisers should take heed and spend their money more wisely.

This whole scenario makes me think there's too many idiots in this country with little else to occupy their feeble minds except garbage like this.
Sure, Jones opened his stupid yap while he had his foot in it.
He sort of apologised, good reason to move on I reckon.

That pair of d*ckheads in the article are a perfect example of what's wrong with this country nowdays, too many people just like them.

Jones epitomises what's wrong with Australian media......he should be made an example of. If politicians don't have the balls to fix the media ,and the media don't have the brains to act properly , then we, the public , will let our views be heard through other channels.....maybe the Mercedes company can sell Jones's reposessed Merc ,and get some money back , after they steam clean all the sperm thats splattered all over the leather upholstery ........

If no-one speaks up against bullies then the bully only grows stronger. It's about time the public let the stupid advertisers know what they think about their supporting an a/h.

How about when Allan Jones is on radio you listen to something else and mind your own business and let the advertisers spend their money how they want?

Jones isn't a bully, he's a loudmouth who's brain sometimes doesn't work before he speaks.
The fact that his show is the highest rating breakfast show in Sydney is proof enough of what I was saying.
Don't like the advertising, don't buy the product.

How about we give Jones the arse from prime time radio , and put someone there, that has no political bias for either side of politics and gives us straight talking facts , that we can use to make up our own mind ?.....Jones is a small part of a very big problem : the Australian biased media problem....All we want is the truth ,not anyones personal political opinions shoved down our throat!!!!!!!...if your in love with Allan,pull your pants down and make friends with him.

The fact he rates so high is the reason he shouldn't have a prime time radio slot.....prime time television and radio should not be dominated by either the left or the right of politics ....it should be completely balanced and neutral....Jones is blatantly right-wing ,and just look at the shit he has caused in recent weeks......his views are no more important than mine or yours...he gets 1 vote,and one vote only , like everyone else.....who does this old queen think he is?

so what are you going to do with the left wing ABC? shut it down also? If you don't like it change channels. Obviously a lot of people enjoy his show. your another commie in socialist clothing wanting to control speech. Free speech mean you get good & bad, crap & good.

I don't listen to him but I think it is a travesty that his opinions may be swaying impressionable ill-informed minds.

Then why don't you campaign to get rid of The 7:30 report and The Project? The Project is happy to have a former member of Resistance (Trotskyist organisation - makes Stalinism appear moderate) as one of their regular 'guest' panelists.
Many of those attacking Jones are supporters of extremist left organisations, equate meat eating to rape or murder, or support strange causes such as public child nudity. Even most of the more 'moderate' campaigners against Jones are campaigners for left-wing politics.

Yes Jones said something stupid. But like me ask you this. Have you never in your life said something idiotic? I know I have. I don't actually like Alan Jones, but this campaign is nothing more than part of a campaign to rid our society of all non-left figures in our society. The same people who lie and make false misogyny claims against every single non-left male, then sit in support of a left-wing parliamentarian who willfully wrote the most disgusting & derogatory material about women's sexual parts on multiple occasions.

This campaign has nothing about decent behaviour, and everything to do with one side of politics attempting to wipe out the other side by every disgusting low-grade method it can.

Well, I am not a chronic left-winger for starters ,I vote on performance......and I don't see any favoutitism on ABC reporting...that's just another commercial media myth ,because they're so far right wing , they would make Bob Menzies look like Joseph Stalin......is there any neutral gear on commercial TV or radio ?.....no , none at all.How can that be ,when the last federal election produced a hung parlaiment ?....ie aprox 50% of voters for each side of politics,with 75% of media brainwashing from the corporate conservative side.....so how many people vote according to what "Today-Tonight" feeds them?.....Rupert has got this country in his pocket ,until people wake up....and they will , sooner or later.

Never watch TT so can't comment.
Channel 7 leans Labor, 9 leans Liberals, 10 now leans Liberals, ABC & SBS have always Leant to Labor. ABC & Fabians hold an annual Dinner they that close. ABC do not hold a dinner or even afternoon tea with Young Liberals.

Commercial stations are not funded by tax payers & have a charter that specifically says they are to be impartial & fair in airtime. Commercial TV owners cannot own commercial radio stations like the ABC & SBS does using talkback 24/7 to push a Labor agenda. Commercial channels cannot afford a $1.9m/yr budget to produce a 10 min/wk show x 26wks(media watch) which spends 95% of its time attacking conservative media & journalists.
