After the Schilling Unity Team slander attack against Connect Cairns mayoral candidate Jim Brooks on Wednesday, Grant Broadcasting
management ordered MacKenzie to read a complete apology on the air yesterday (Friday). Apparently attempting to save themselves from an almost sure, expensive loss in a courtroom.
The slander went to air because MacKenzie, despite his legal obligations under the Commercial Radio Codes of Practice, allowed Schilling to make these slanderous statements when he has the technology (and obligation) to disconnect such callers.
MacKenzie gleefully posted the original slanderous statements on Twitter, and in a sound file on the 4CA website. MacKenzie and Grant have so far refused to post the apology on Twitter, and have also refused to post the apology audio recording in the same way.
This makes the apology incomplete - far more people were given access to the Schilling Slander from Twitter and other social media. This still leaves them open to a lawsuit.
YOU CAN JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.
