This was sent my way and thought it needed sharing;
“I dont know if anyoneheard this on the Nicky Campbell Show ? The subject was Max Mosley and his privacy caseat the EU court. The program is supposed to be a public phone-in but to myrecollection only 2 members of the public got on air for about 20 seconds only.The rest of the program was taken up by so called “expertcontributors”. Here they are:
Studio: Jo Glanville – Index on Censorship (against Max Mosley)
Phone Contributors: Mark Stephens (?) – media lawyer (against Max Mosley)
Kelvin MacKenzie – Sun Newspaper (against Max Mosley)
John Hemmings – MP (against Max Mosley)
Some religous nut – (against Max Mosley and society in general)
Obviously no BBC bias there then at all !!”
If you take responsibility for your own reputation like Mosley did-without informing Watchdog, You and Yours, Feed back-or (worst of all) the BBC Trust-then said media mediums get all hissy fit on you.
They have not got Max emoting or doing family pieces to camera. In short, he is the rich independent stuff of Beebland nightmares…and so,ipso facto, my new chum!
The BBcs body languange on all things Max will be “disappointing” but hey he is the son of Oswald…who is going up in my estimation by the day…remind me,was he new Labour or old?
Did Andrew Marr get a similar amount of coverage? One would have thought that his special media position would make him worthy of more scrutiny than this guy.
The last issue of “Private Eye” has a whole page devoted to Marr and pointing out his hypocrisy with quotes of questions he was asking politicians about their private lives. According to PE, it was partly pressure from their lawyers that forced Marr to come clean , before the published.. Of course Marr presented it as though he had done it for honourable reasons. Scumbag.
Don’t expect the BBC to report the full story.
“they”. Wish this site had a preview facility !
And Mosley faced a lot of hostility and I think had to give up his prime position in overseeing motor sport. I don’t suppose Marr has had anything like the same outcry and opposition within his industry or has had to give up his high-profile position.
3 nice posts David . I am getting a bit bored with sue.
This is the first time I’ve seen you comment and I’m bored with you already.
First and last post I suspect !
It’s so important to keep you entertained. I hope this has been noted and recorded for future action.
What a co-incidence that all these anti-Mosley callers phoned in at the same time. Makes you think it was all set up by the BBC !
