Image from The Australian, the article goes on to say “THE Macquarie Radio Network says it’s temporarily suspending all advertising on Alan Jones’s 2GB breakfast show. … A number of companies last week pulled advertising from Jones’s breakfast show following the controversy over his remarks to a Sydney University Liberal Club dinner. … The “unprecedented decision” to suspend advertising until further notice would come at a very significant short-term cost to the network”

*A number of companies last week pulled advertising in actual fact = over 70
