Jacqui Lambie And The 'Well Hung' Story - Why Did The Examiner Cover It Twice?

Hot on the heels of the 'Four Barrel Echidna Penis' story, IT asks why did the Launceston Examiner block online comments on their first Jacquie Lambie 'something between the legs' story.
Now the Examiner has done the same story twice in one day, this time quoting Anti-Discrimination Commissioner Robin Banks who said 'discrimination law is about encouraging all of us to treat each other with respect'. The Examiner never treated 'greenies' with respect, in fact the term 'greenie' is a derogatory insult in Tasmania. It's hypocritical for the Examiner to now quote the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner when it suits them.
By Georgie Burgess and Mathew Knott at the Examiner.
 Tasmanian Palmer United Party Senator Jacqui Lambie has this morning told a commercial radio station that she looks for 'lots of cash and a package between their legs' when searching for a partner.
Radio hosts Kim and Dave from Heart 107.3 revealed Senator Lambie had been without a partner for 11 years and offered to help her find a partner in a Bachelorette-style call out.
'They've got to have lots of cash and a package between their legs,' Senator Lambie told the hosts.
'They don't even need to speak,' she said.
Jamie, a 22-year-old caller, rang in to express interest in courting Senator Lambie.
Senator Lambie asked Jamie whether he had "plenty of cash''.
'I'm just a bit concerned at being 22 years of age and living in Tasmania you might not be quite there yet,' Senator Lambie told Jamie.
Jamie informed Senator Lambie he had a small fortune.
'I am a bit concerned, because you are so young, that you may not be able to handle Jacqui Lambie,' she said.
Jamie said he had "been about a bit'', to which the senator responded: `You don't have any diseases do you?'
One of the hosts told Jamie there was a crucial question left for Senator Lambie to ask.
'I guess, are you well hung?' Senator Lambie asked.
Jamie says he was 'hung like a donkey' and a breakfast date was arranged, but not before Jamie swiftly disappeared from the line.
By mid afternoon, after Lambie’s interview had gone viral, she released a statement saying: 'I apologise to any radio listeners who may be offended by my comments on Kim and Dave’s show'.
'Of course my political enemies will make a big deal out of my comments, but the reality is I was talking with Kim and Dave on Heart FM - not Sarah Ferguson on the ABC'.
'I also told Kim and Dave about the $3000 a year that the Palmer United Senate team saved average Australian families at the last sitting of Parliament, but of course those comments didn’t receive nationwide coverage – go figure!'
