Jones offers an apology for Opera House CEO interview

Tuesday 09 October, 2018
A petition with over 230,000 signatures, advertiser targeting, unrelenting criticism from media sources and time to think it over has led Alan Jones to offer an apology for an interview with Opera House CEO, Louise Herron.
 
While saying that he had been “tough” on an issue that he and others thought important, he accepted that "I used some words in these programs about the Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret hearing, having heard the impact they've clearly had on some people,"
 
During Fridays heated on-air discussion with the Opera House chief the veteran broadcaster called for her to lose her job if she would not agree to project the ad for the Everest horse race, telling her "…I will be speaking with Gladys Berejiklian in about five, three minutes and if you can't come to the party, Louise, you should lose your job."
 
Thousands of people are now expected to conduct a quiet protest near the Opera House tonight, expressing their dismay at the State Government's decision to let the 6 minute show advertising the Everest horse race go ahead.

The petition with over 230,000 signatures objecting to the display was delivered to Parliamant House this morning.
 
The Chaser offered their own unique commentary last night.
