RADIO’S Mr Despicable Mike Carlton might have seen the error of his ways in his old age. Well, sort of.The 2UE talking head, doing his best to repel sharks with an appearance in his budgie smugglers at Palm Beach recently, has finally conceded his comments on the late Stan Zemanek were off the mark.

Carlton tried to ignore the scandal which led to him being slammed by his bosses for remarks he made on the day of Zemanek’s funeral.

This week, while spruiking his new documentary, Indonesia: A Reporter’s Journey, Carlton told The Manly Daily he had to “cop the bagging”. “(With the Zemanek attack) the timing could have been better but I wouldn’t have retracted a word. I might have waited longer.”
