The Daily Telegraph has officially pulled Alan Jones’ weekly column for failing to “resonate” with readers. So sayonara you scrotum with legs!
Sources told The Sydney Morning Herald that The Daily Tele’s editor Ben English broke the news to Jones, which the shit-stirring conservative confirmed. However, Jones denied the decision was made because his column no longer resonates with readers.
“If the argument has been it’s not resonating, I don’t have to defend myself,” Jones told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“Have a look at Sky News YouTube, Sky News Facebook and Alan Jones Facebook and you can see. The same column that I write for the Tele goes up on my Facebook page.
“The public can check it for themselves. Thirty-five years at top of the radio and I don’t resonate with the public? Honestly.”
This comes after Jones has been in even more shit than usual, with false claims about COVID-19 and his continuous anti-lockdown/anti-vaxx commentary.
The boiled egg quoted data from a British study that suggested the Delta strain of COVID was less dangerous than the original Alpha variant. Of course, that was painfully incorrect and Jones was blasted by Paul Barry on Media Watch for sharing misleading information.
Jones even made fucked comments toward Kerry Chant on Monday’s episode of Sky News, calling her “dumb and “out of touch.”
“How many villages are missing their idiot?” he said.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, NSW health minister Brad Hazzard responded to the anti-lockdown claims made by Jones and other shock-jock commentators.
“There are a lot of people who don’t base their decisions in science or in evidence,” Hazzard said.
“All I will say is we are in a one-in-100-year pandemic.
“The community need to understand the decisions are taken as best as possible on the basis of evidence and science to keep us safe.”
Hazzard also addressed the “selfish” individuals who choose not to get vaccinated, instead of protecting the community.
“It’s time for people who think that way to ‘wake up’, including commentators who actually don’t base their commentary in any logic whatsoever,” he said.
