The Chasers War on Alan Jones continues

Tuesday 26 November, 2019
Following news that half of Alan Jones' advertisers have abandoned him in the wake of several scandals involving violent language against powerful women, The Chaser has come up with a scheme to try and get the rest of his advertisers to abandon him too.
"We noticed that Alan Jones only has 500,000 monthly listeners," said editor Cam Smith. "Our website attracts a lot more than that, so we decided to offer one month of free advertising to any advertiser who withdraws all their advertising from Alan Jones."
The first offer was made on Twitter to McDondald's, who still advertise with Jones.

Alan Jones gets about 500,000 listeners per month (official numbers, probably inflated). Our website has considerably more monthly readers. So @maccas how's this: we'll give you a month free advertising on our website if you pull your ads from Alan Jones.

"It's a win-win," said Chaser founder Charles Firth. "The advertiser gets to reach a larger audience, and society moves one step closer to Alan Jones being removed from the airwaves."
The latest boycott by advertisers is after Alan Jones said of NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern:  "I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat."
