Sydney radio listeners have been subjected to a racial slur after Alan Jones once again dropped the N-word as part of a foul-mouthed rant.

It's not the first time Jones has used the N-word on-air. Back in 2012, he used the phrase "n—– in the woodpile" to describe Malcolm Turnbull's leadership ambitions.

"Good stuff, Tony Abbott," he said. "You're there not to buckle at the knees just because a few little media outlets and sympathisers to Julia Gillard want you to. There's talk of Maclolm Turnbull, the n—– in the woodpile."

Jones hasn't just reserved the N-word for politics. In the past, he's used in rants about cricket and even while advocating for farmers.
