War has broken out between the right wing commercial radio shock jocks, with 2GBs Ray Hadley having a stoush with former colleague Alan Jones now with Sky, into the mix goes Sky News nightly raver Andrew Bolt. Hadley has attacked the other two for their outrageous comments on the Sydney lockdown, and he has attacked Bolt for his defence of a convicted paedophile. I have no concern with a bunch of right wing ratbags attacking each other, in fact its good to watch.

My question is; Do these right wing "Shockers" as I like to call them, exert too much influence in society over public policy? Are people like Morrison falling over themselves to appear with these "Shockers" to give a please explain, and try and gain their approval for what is government decisions made for the good of all. Who is running the country, the elected politicians, or these unelected know all's like Jones, Hadley and Bolt etc.

Paul why are you listening to radio skirmishes when the World is at war. We are in the midst of the Great Reset where all property and wealth will become property of the State. All employment will be employment to the State and you will be tracked and only allowed to move according the rules of the State. Wealth will be distributed by the State world Wide and the model will be the CCP who will control your activities and beliefs and dispose ot unproductive persons of the State. You will be owned by the State. The relese of the Corona virus was the initial move to bring about the great reset which Governments are talking about at the UN but are not bringing it to the people as it means a whole new life change and State control.

What a predictable, monotonous load of crap from someone who exists only to rave on about how good the left is and how bad the right is. Nothing original, he just combs all the ratbag websites for second hand material - a megaphone for the lunatic fringe who, apart from his local Green branch, don't know of his miserable existence.

Dear Paul,

I grew up in Sydney and I can remember (long before
the pandemic hit the world) these shock jocks
of Sydney commercial radio stations, particularly
2GB and 2UE, (and now Sky News), how they had created
their business models, built on outrage - using shock
tactics.

An article in "The Conversation," points out -

"These guys base their political ideology on what they
think will appeal "to an older audience living in what
Jones is pleased to call "Struggle Street." It's not
conservatism as they like to claim but
plain and simple - reactionaryism."

In other words - these guys -

" pander to the marginal electorates, largely found
in Western Sydney where there are enough peoole who
find this ideology attractive and make politicians nervous."

"It's not conservatism as they like to claim but rank
reactionaryism."

That's what gives these jocks political
power.

The article in "The Conversation," tells us that these guys
have become - "a kind of shadow government in NSW." which
helps explain the NSW Premier's responses to COVID-19 thus
far. Her procrastination and prevarications that have
marked her responses to COVID.

The shock jocks certainly yield a great deal of influence.
And will continue to do so - until they age and can't
continue any more - just like John Laws did.
Whatever became of him? Is he still alive?

Foxy, Lawsie did an interview with PM Morrison on 14th July this year. See: http://www.pm.gov.au media interview-john-laws-2...BTW I don't endorse any of these "Shock Jocks" or their Electronic Whorehouse masters. FYI.
