THE communications watchdog has announced it is investigating complaints made about an on-air attack on a journalist by shock jock Kyle Sandilands.
Sandilands launched the attack on news.com.au entertainment editor Alison Stephenson on 2Day FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show on November 22 after she reported the low ratings of the pair's television special A Night With The Stars.
"Some fat slag on news.com.au has already branded it a disaster. You can tell by reading the article that she just hates us and has always hated us," Sandilands said.
"What a fat, bitter thing you are. You're deputy editor of an online thing. You've got a nothing job anyway. You're a piece of shit.
"This low thing, Alison Stephenson, deputy editor of news.com.au online. You're supposed to be impartial, you little troll."
