Alan Jones controversy: ‘The tsunami has peaked’

From Morning Report, 8:37 am on 21 August 2019

More audio has emerged of controversial Australian broadcaster Alan Jones making misogynistic comments about Jacinda Ardern on his breakfast radio show.

Last week, Mr Jones sparked outrage after a tirade about the Prime Minister and her views on climate change. Now other comments from that same segment are causing further controversy.

Monica Attard is a former host of the Australian TV programme Media Watch and is now the head of Journalism at the University of Technology Sydney.

She spoke to Corin Dann and says she would be surprised if Jones survives the controversy this time.
