Sydney radio station Ray Hadley killed his former 2GB colleague Alan Jones after defending a man accused of beating a police horse and suggesting that a Brazilian woman did not die of Covid.
Hadley, who had worked with Jones for more than three decades at both 2GB and 2UE, said he had observed “strange behavior” on the same radio stations for many years.
On Monday night’s Sky News, Jones spoke up for Kristian Pulkownik, one of 63 people charged for protesting Saturday’s lockdowns in Sydney in violation of a public health order.
Pulkownik, who failed to appear in court on Tuesday, was charged with affray, animal cruelty, participating in an illegal rally and failing to comply with a Covid-19 health directive after being filmed touching the face of Tobruk, a police horse.
Jones claimed that the man he was just trying to prevent the animal from running into him.
“In the video you can see the horse turning around and all this 33-year-old was trying to do was stop the horse from turning against him, so he raised his hand like any of us would,” he said. he.
“That’s why, and from what you see, he’s been charged with animal cruelty.”

Jones also mocked Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian for promising that the rioters who flouted a public health order would apply the full force of the law.
“This is what you get as part of disproportionate responses to the coronavirus issue,” he said.
“I feel sorry for the police and the horses: they were hunted down by the government of Bereyik.”
Hadley cited Monday night’s Sky News broadcast to accuse Jones of supporting the violent protests in Sydney city centre.
“He needs to be called up for last night’s program,” he said.
“He supported Saturday’s violence and protest and blamed the New South Wales lockdown laws and the Berejik government for what happened.”
Hadley said Jones’ defense of the man who allegedly assaulted the police horse was “incredible.”
“On Sky News, Alan Jones is an apology to these crooks every night,” he said.

On his program, Jones also bizarrely asked Pulkownik’s lawyer Tony Nikolic whether the death of a healthy 38-year-old Brazilian woman Adriana Midori Takara on Sunday morning was really Covid’s.
The Sky News presenter claimed there was a conspiracy to pronounce a certain cause of death, for political purposes, as no autopsy had to be performed at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where the woman died, because the Australian Bureau of the Statistics did not require this to compile the number of corona deaths.
“All the stories say they are dead from coronavirus at the age of 38. As a lawyer, are you aware that national Covid guidelines and the ABS suggest that an autopsy should not be performed because a Covid death is declared?” Jones said.
“It is highly unlikely that it is a Covid death.”

This made Hadley angry.
“This is very, very insulting to the family,” he said.
Hadley worked with Jones at 2GB from 2002 to 2020, having served as a broadcaster at 2UE since the mid-1980s.
He accused him of providing a platform for anti-vaxxers like Pete Evans, a famous TV chef with a fringe view.
“As you know, I have followed Mr Jones very closely for 35 years,” he said.
“I’ve seen some of his strange behavior and I mean really strange behavior in the past.”
WSFM breakfast host Amanda Keller also accused Jones of “inflaming” the anti-lockdown riots in Sydney, along with Hadley’s 2GB colleague Ben Fordham, who replaced Jones at breakfast last year.
