STORY: "Alan Jones backs child killer Kathleen Folbigg's innocence," published by the Australian on January 19, 2014;

GIST: "RADIO shock jock Alan Jones has reportedly supported a convicted child killer's claims of innocence. News Corp Australia reports the 2GB presenter has been visiting Kathleen Folbigg in jail and believes the evidence she was convicted on is discredited. In 2003, Folbigg was convicted of killing four of her children, aged between 19 days and 19 months, in the decade from 1989. Jailed for 30 years, Folbigg is Australia's worst female serial killer. The report stated Jones has also backed a University of Newcastle's legal centre plan to pursue a judicial inquiry into Folbigg's case.........
News Corp reports Mr Jones visited Folbigg after an interview with academic lawyer Emma Cunliffe, who has written a book claiming Folbigg was wrongly convicted. Mr Jones referred to evidence used in the case from Folbigg's diary. "Consensus tells you that when a woman loses her baby she feels a sense of guilt," he told News Corp. "How she translates that in language, her feelings of failure to the child, to be a good mother, is by writing that to herself in these diaries. "They were then used against her." When contacted today, a spokesman for the radio star said it was not likely Mr Jones would comment further."
