JOHN MACKENZIE EMASCULATED IN ELECTION COVERAGE WITH 4CA IN TECHNICAL MELTDOWN - INDEPENDENT DANIEL MCCARTHY EMERGES AS LECIHHARDT LEADER

Cairns chat king John MacKenzie revels in his faux influence on the Far North.  As a shrill shock jock, he long ago gave up his dream to move up the broadcast ladder in Australia, as he was passed over time and time again by big-city broadcasters.  All they had to do is listen to his bigoted and pedestrian views, along with a review of his huge complaint file with the government regulator, ACMA.

He's living out his pathetic life for two events:  cyclones, and elections.

BUILDING WITH DOUBLESTICK TAPE FOR
EASY REMOVAL

This federal election cycle has seen MacKenzie gutted like a mackerel - as broadcast and transmission problems along with a failed phone system have left him little to do but play muzak to his fading audience.  4CA along with its other FM brand were required to move to a new location in the ghost town area of the CBD on Grafton Street.  Once the Post Office left, the area became as as sleepy as our Mayor.  A Mayor who failed to move forward on the planned and vital car parking structure which would have contained street-side retailing and kept lower Grafton alive.

The owners of 4CA were unwilling to invest much into the
FAILED SOLICITOR MURRY JONES
SURROUNDED BY THE
"NEW" STUDIO EQUIPMENT - ALL
MADE IN CHINA AND OTHER
ASIAN COUNTRIES
new facility - it's filled with cheap equipment, some of it new Chinese crap but much of it recycled from other Grant family-owned radio stations.  Yup, Cairns is even the dumping ground for the media.  

MacKenzie's fallen star is evident to all.  NEITHER the Liberal Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull nor the Labor Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has bothered to turn up for an interview. Despite furious pleas from MacKenzie to Warren Entsch to get Turnbull in the place, Turnbull just laughed!  Entsch has ZERO influence on his own government now and Turnbull refuses to assist Entsch, hoping for the independent candidate Dan McCarthy to get up into the seat.  

Gone are the days when Prime Ministers and Brisbane political leaders stopped in to talk to Macca.  They all now view him as part of the problem - a sad, bitter old man with glad-handers for friends and loathed across the young community.

So it was no surprise when MacKenzie was heard bellowing his abuse at acquaintances and strangers alike this week after another day with dodgy phone lines, and a couple washed-up, bitter pollies in the form of Michael "Where's the Backhoe" Trout and Pauline Hanson.  Yawn.

Under duress, MacKenzie became part of the only public debate among candidates in the seat of Leichhardt.  Valiant attempts to "control" the public at this debate were made, with onerous requirements to submit questions in advance and MacKenzie personally screening questions in a vain attempt to protect the Minister for Bloggers, Warren Entsch.

All that didn't stop Daniel McCarthy, who revealed with documentary PROOF that Entsch and the LNP have been taking hundreds of thou$ands of dollar$ from the insurance companies, all while Entsch has spent YEARS conning the Cairns public into thinking he was working to get some fairness in the home insurance system.  McCarthy confirmed what we all suspected - that Entsch is only interested in himself, and not the residents of Far North Queensland. 



The Cairns Post, who sent a reporter from Townsville to the debate, has yet to report this or any of the other Entsch scandals that have made him persona non grata even with his own Liberal Party "mates".  

I guess ol' Cueball will be hoping for a cyclone now.  His political influence days are well and truly over.

Another succinct, factual, and always humorous yet sadly true, expose on Cairns from HBW!
10/10

It's not only Ratbag Turnbull won't talk to. He has steered clear of all the big conservative commentators this election. He won't talk to Neil Mitchell, Any of the 2gb host except for a negotiated segment with Alan Jones. He is scared of his own side. Malcolm only speak to ABC cause they love him in there.

Excellent article.4CAye is a disgrace to Cairns. McKenzie is a dinosaur.

There always seems like a group of people in town who think they are above democracy and will decide who is in power and what we need from government and screw what the rest of us think. They they are shocked when the extremes on both sides gain ground. People are disconnected.

Mackenzie's days are numbered and he is now in his death throes, issuing forth the embittered ravings of an old dinosaur out of time and out of touch. Let us all hope the end is quick.

Cueball looks like a dildo with ears.

Anon 09:23 A bit like the regular attack sharks that the Townsville based Cairns Post allows to troll the online comments section attacking any contributer brave enough to post a comment that might challenge their narrow extremist right wing indoctrination. Can't wait for it to go behind a paywall and go broke.

The thing is 4CA's talk-back phones work OK for Murray Jones while McKenzie claims they're not working so he can invite his favourites to interview in the studio.
