What excellent news that the Prime Minister and a number of other ministers and MPs are pledging that they will not accept invitations (or commands) to participate in Alan Jones’ program in future. Let’s hope that they don’t weaken. Listening to the adoring phone calls from some of his listeners who think he’s the most wonderful person in the world it’s clear that Julia Gillard is never going to capture swinging voters in that audience.
And the good news today is that 68 advertisers have now withdrawn their support for Alan Jones and 2GB in which he is a major shareholder. 2GB shares have dropped by 16% on the stock market.
The alternative voice is making an impact so let’s keep it up.
