Badly missed at Sky where enthusiasm is mistaken for reality

He’s a very good campaigner, Morrison, and he can learn a script and he can nail the issues. The question is: are people listening? Now there are many people saying, ‘Well, we do know him, and we’re a little concerned about what we know.’ It’s nice to write headlines about Albanese messing up, not knowing the unemployment figures and missing the gotcha questions. But it does appear that many people have made up their minds because the needle isn’t moving.”

Alan Jones returns on 2 May. His new adhtv program will air Monday to Thursday at 8pm.

    Me and Mr Jones
    da-ra ta-tah tah Tah Tah-Tah

    He was too busy with ‘lock the gate’ to know.

    Stuff him!

    He is no different to any other paid propagandist to understand the corruption of the media.

    How much taxpayer money is paid from all branches/levels of Local/State/Federal government to the MSM Propaganda Industry?

  4. Shy Ted says:

    Those Paul Murray live shows are a joke. Nobody taking the pollies to task. No anger towards them. Bunch of actors. And I’d say the needle not moving is a response to ScuMo having a 2 year history with needles.

  5. Entropy says:

    Alan Jones’ behaviour towards the Wagners, the New Hope mine extension and coal seam gas is all outright wrong and completely unforgivable.

    I don’t give a rats what he thinks.

  6. C.L. says:

    Yeah, he’s no unblemished hero. I wouldn’t worry too much about the Wagners; they’ve managed to kiss enough Labor arse to make a motsa out of Queensland taxpayers via the good offices of the Premier at Wellcamp.

    But he was the only one who called out lockdowns, mandates and vaxx insanity for what they were – even as his Sky colleagues ran for cover behind the prevailing p.c. orthodoxy. He was also the last Sky anchor prepared to criticise Liberals.
    I no longer really care who is or isn’t with a particular media outfit but Sky would be better viewing if it was ruffling some luvvie Liberal feathers.

    That’s exactly how I feel C.L. Jones was 100% right about the insanity of lockdowns, mandates and the vaccination hysteria. He was booted from Sky for his truth telling because Sky management capitulated to progressive activist groups. Sure he has his flaws…….but who doesn’t? I’d take Jones any day over sops like Morrison.

  8. Not Trampis says:

    I love this he is a very good campaigner. what does that mean and by what metric do we measure it.
    Morrison only fought one campaign as a leader and that is the only election where we had a massive polling failure so we cannot measure anything.
    As I recall both Hawke and Howard were ‘very good campaigners’ yet both lost and won votes in various election campaigns which means neither were very good campaigners.

    jones is wrong on this as he is on most issues.

    the only election where we had a massive polling failure so we cannot measure anything.

    If you seriously believe that there has only ever been a “massive polling failure” in one election, you need to give up the bong.

  10. Not Trampis says:

    Alas you have little idea of statistics. those who do say one has occurred.
    you really should give up on issues you have no idea about.

    on the polling failure see Kevin Bonham. Even Andrew Gelman commented on it.

  11. Rufus T Firefly says:

    Jones is no doubt, a polarising figure.
    Two weeks out from the 2019 election, he went through every seat, where, in his opinion, there would be a change. Every seat.

    He got ONE wrong, Corangamite, which he thought the LNP would win, despite a redistribution. They lost by about 400 votes.

    He picked every other seat. That is a pretty fair effort.
    Now, how did the ABC go?

  12. C.L. says:

    I think Rita wanted to go harder against Morrison quite often but now she’s been disappeared as well – in favour of that narcissistic nonce, Piers Morgan.

    The two blokes on Outsiders often hog the panel and talk over the top of her – which I find annoying.

  13. C.L. says:

    I agree, Rufus.
    Whenever I listened to Jones do the round of electorates, the intell he had from each seat – and his ability to argue what the figures meant electorally – was very impressive.

  14. C.L. says:

    The thing about Jones is that intellectual pride is a far stronger force in his commentary than partisan loyalty. He might hate Labor but he’s not going to ‘predict’ a Liberal win just to hearten the peanut gallery.

    That’s a good thing.

    Can’t even manage to provide a link to your “trusted sources”? How sad is that?

  16. Ed Case says:

    Hi, Not,
    Morrison only fought one campaign as a leader and that is the only election where we had a massive polling failure so we cannot measure anything.
    What was the “massive Polling failure”?

    Are you suggesting the 2019 Election was stolen from Labor?

  17. Not Trampis says:

    of course not.
    in 2019 every polling organisation got the election badly wrong. This is the first time this has occurred here.
    we have had a number of those organisations say they have learnt from that and reformed what they do. We shall see. Kevin bonham has written extensively on this.
    although Mark the Ballot warned us there was something wrong last time.
