There’s something pitiful about Alan Jones pretending to be a victim; we know he’s dished out more than he will ever take, and his mewling about his treatment renders him abject.
Yesterday morning, on his return to radio, he said the “unbridled hatred” directed at him was, in part at least, motivated by jealously. I suppose in his situation others might cling to that delusion. Especially because - adding insult to his injured tone - he will have to issue another apology for his racist rants against Sydney’s Lebanese Muslims. No wonder he feels set upon, what with all his chickens coming home to roost.
But he does have a point - some nasty people have said some nasty stuff about this nasty man.

There’s a sort of mad, vindictive glee around the unraveling case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn. A bit of ‘gotcha’ giddiness that this woman who made such devastating claims of rape against such an incredibly powerful figure is being shredded.
Each day has seen a frenzied media rip new chinks in her credibility with new claims; she changed her story; she lied about a gang rape; she associates with criminals; she’s a prostitute.
Bringing down this anonymous ‘maid’ has become a global blood sport. It may turn out that she had some insidious reason for toppling DSK. He may be innocent. At this murky point in the sordid tale almost anything seems possible.
