RICHADA WADES INTO A POPULARIST CONTROVERSY

Advantages: I may no longer need the OFF switch on my TV.

Only....24 Hours from Clarksville...

Advantages: Was a good show
Disadvantages: So much for free speech

There’s an unfortunate paradox in the modern media. The more controversial and risky you are the more popular you become but the more likely to be sacked by nervous and righteous TV bosses. But if you don’t push to be popular you also get fired or moved s ...

Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson?
