Give Them Blood!

It’s somewhat hypocritical of me to say this when this is my third post on the Ross/Brand story but the press and media coverage of this has snowballed with all other news being pushed aside. Gordon Brown must be doing cartwheels as the country’s focus shifts from his handling of the economy to the BBC’s handling of this sorry affair. The BBC has had over 30 000 complaints and there are ongoing investigations by both the BBC and OFCOM; and we’ve also got calls to debate the BBC handling of this episode in the commons! This is similar to the Shilpha Shetty/Big Brother racism affair where the public also telephoned with complaints in their thousands wanting action and which too was given plenty of oxygen by the media. It appears that we as a country love to hate a real life villain and until Jonathan Ross isn’t sent to the gallows sacked, there’ll be no peace.
