Talk-show host 'over sensationalizes' says Wagner family Barrister.

Broadcaster Alan Jones’ attempts to claim a cover up over the deaths of 12 people in the Lockyer Valley floods, have been described as “dramatic” and “sinister”, by a lawyer in a defamation case.

Jones has been sued by the prominent Wagner family, who claim they were accused 'on air' of the 2011 deaths in Grantham, after one of the walls of a quarry they owned collapsed.

Closing submissions were delivered in the Brisbane Supreme Court yesterday...with the family’s barrister also claiming Jones’ description of the floods was “something like out of a movie”.
