Ross; suspended for 12 weeks without pay....Fuck it's like being a pro fotballer
Yeah, he IS funny ... but I dont think that makes any difference.
If I phoned someone up, on a work phone in work time, and left an abusive message, I'd get sacked. And if everyone standing around though it was hilarious, that wouldn't get me out of it. Actually it'd probably make it worse. I don't think he should be sacked for being unfunny, because he isn't; nor for offending the listeners, because he didn't. I think he (Ross) should be sacked for making abusive phone calls. Isn't that, in fact, illegal?
They deserved a penalty, partly for what they did but more for bringing their employer into disrepute. They provided ammunition for the Beeb's many enemies (like the Daily Mail and Murdoch empire) at an already sensitive time for the corporation. That was the real offence. They should have known better, as should have the supervising editors.
I work for the Beeb, in the news rather than entertainment part. I can say with hand on heart that the Beeb's own extensive news coverage of the affair is in no way related to Woss's assertion a while back, at a time of cutbacks in the news department, that he was worth 1,000 news journalists. No siree, not a bit of it.
There's many a true word spoken in jest.
he has got high on his own supply so I for one would be glad to see him banished back to Baltimore.
JR steps down from hosting the comedy awards?
I wish Gary Megson would ring somebody and make smutty comments so that Bolton could get rid of him.
