As Melinda Tankard Reist points out in today’s Online Opinion, the pathetic excuses given by Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O for asking an underage girl about sex and drugs on live radio are hollow:
Jackie O said the team never intended to stage a “sick stunt”.
“There is no way we would want to go down that path or put that girl in that situation …” she said.
But Jackie, you did put her in that situation.
And then Kyle Sandilands went crying “oh poor me, the media is out to get me”. Oh, boo hoo. Take some responsibility, you big baby.
Not being a fan of 2Day FM or Kyle and Jackie O, I wasn’t aware that the polygraph machine had been used before. Tankard Reist says it’s been used to quiz people about STDs, masturbation, anal sex, threesomes, and eating shit during sex. Classy.
But this bit is my favourite:
On May 6 this year, Kyle and his male radio announcer buddies (in a show syndicated around the country) held a competition in the station office to see who could masturbate the fastest and who had the largest sperm count.
With armloads of porn, they were sent to cordoned off toilets. One of the players returned and wiped his “sticky” hand through Jackie’s hair.
Now I’m not surprised they thought asking a minor about sex would be entertaining.
