Will #WarOnTerrier bite Kyle?
That’s what Federal Minister Barnaby Joyce is gunning for.
He has asked the AMCA to investigate Kyle Sandilands for calling him a “wanker”, “cock”, “idiot” and “loser”, amongst a few other choice words.
Kyle and Jackie O got the minister on for a chat about Johnny Depp’s dogs, Pistol and Boo, with it fast turning into Kyle having a fair crack at Barnaby.
Barnaby has written a letter asking for a personal apology from KIIS 106.5. A copy has also been sent to ACMA. It has also been reported that Barnaby Joyce’s office has sent another letter to ACMA requesting consideration of an independent review to skip the normal complaint process.
ACMA are following the correct protocol and will only step in if ARN do not follow due process, in which they have 60 days to respond to a complaint. Authority chair Chris Chapman is on the record at a Senate estimates hearing saying that ACMA only bypassed the complaints process in exceptional circumstances.
