The 2GB radio host has been widely condemned for recent comments about the New Zealand Prime Minister
ABC Media Watch has revealed more disparaging remarks made by shock jock Alan Jones against NZ PM Jacinda Ardern:
I hope Scott Morrison gets tough here with a few backhanders. Hasn’t got a clue, this woman.
The comments were made the same morning the 2GB breakfast radio host said that Mr Scott Morrison should “shove a sock” down Ms Ardern's throat, after she encouraged Australia to do more about climate change.
“This lightweight New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, is challenging Scott Morrison over climate change,” Mr Jones said on radio station 2GB.
The new audio comes days after Mr Jones’ boss, Macquarie Media chairman, Russell Tate, issued a warning telling the radio host he will be sacked if he continues to use offensive and violent language about women.
Mr Jones’ initial comments were published at the end of last week and widely condemned by politicians and commentators.
“Here [Jacinda Ardern] is preaching on global warming and saying that we’ve got to do something about climate change,” he broadcasted on 15 August.
I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat.
Scott Morrison denounced the comments from the Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu.
"The comment has been relayed to me. On what’s been reported to me, I find that very disappointing and, of course, that’s way out of line," Mr Morrison said.
“I have two daughters, so you can expect that’s how I would feel personally about it. I’ll leave others to explain what they’ve said and how they’ve said it."
A raft of companies have pulled advertising from Mr Jones’ program on 2GB, including Koala Mattresses and Bing Lee.
Ms Arden responded to initial comments with a tactful jab at Mr Jones’ rugby career, where he coached the Australian team the Wallabies from 1984 to 1988.
"I understand [Alan Jones] used to be closely linked to the Wallabies, so let's just say that revenge is best served through a Bledisloe Cup,” she told the NZ radio program The AM Show.
Macquarie Media has been contacted for comment.
