So Sky Sports presenter, Andy Gray and Richard Keys, have lost their jobs for making off-air sexist comments. Why?
They haven’t made any sexist comments on the air, only privately. Someone has deliberately and vindictively leaked recordings of their private conversations to destroy them. Why were the cameras recording private conversations and how did someone manage to accumulate a collection of recordings of off-air, private conversations and get them on the internet?
Will the presenters of lunchtime trash TV programme, Loose Women, come under similar scrutiny for their on-air sexism? Every episode of Loose Women consists of a couple of interviews, a bit of gossip and the rest is made up of sexist comments and jokes about men. Why is it acceptable for a gaggle of middle aged women to base an entire TV programme around slagging men off but it’s a sackable offence for a TV presenter to make sexist comments off the air to male colleagues who clearly took no offence at them?
I’ve said it before: straight, white English men are the most discriminated against section of society.
