Sydney 2DAY FM shock jock Kyle Sandilands has been branded a misogynist by some senior media female commentators for his nasty on-air attack on a woman journalist. For me, that description of him misses the mark, by a long shot.

Certainly some of the derogatory terms he used in response to criticism of his dismal television foray by the journo (a rant I won’t give any dignity to by repeating it here) were aimed at her appearance. However, to brand Kyle as a "woman-hater" overlooks the fact that he is an equal-opportunity bully.
