Alan Jones ‘out of control’ on air: Campbell Newman

On Wednesday 28 October 2015 the Wagner family lodged a $10million case ‘against Alan Jones, his employer Harbour Radio, Brisbane radio station 4BC and Nck Cater, the head of the Menzies Research Centre and a columnist for The Australian.’ 

Hedley Thomas wrote in The Australian (30.10.15) that former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman would also like to take action against Jones. ‘If someone out there is as affronted by Alan Jones as I have been, and if they would like to front legal action that I could take, I would be delighted to sit down and accept the support to make accountable a guy who is ount of control and not doing the right thing by Australians.’

‘Mr Newman said “ranting and raving” by Jones against him probably had not cost the LNP the election but he do doubt it had had an impact and made it difficult to communicate policies and messages’.
