Harvey Norman leaves Jones

Staff Writer

Gerry Harvey has said he felt he was "joining a lynch mob" by pulling advertising from Alan Jones' radio show and that he had no choice amid a growing political and consumer backlash.

Harvey Norman joined Telstra, Hyundai, Momentum Energy, Honda, and many others in pulling out of the 2GB breakfast show.

Mr. Harvey said…

"He shouldn't have said (what he said) but should that stop the bloke from having a radio career? You have to ask are you part of a lynch mob? If 50 per cent of people think he should (continue) and 50 per cent of people think he shouldn't, then I suggest he should. Even if it's just 20 or 30 per cent of people I think he should be able to continue."

The number of people who have signed an online petition calling on advertisers to leave the show is now over 100,000.
