Well, what a surprise. Television presenters and producers are in the business of making money. This usually means pushing up the prices of advertising space. So they want to make programs that are popular. Which means smut and bad language.
Sunday's screening of The Frank Skinner Show, in which guest Boy George was seen talking about masturbation and homosexual acts, sparked more than 20 complaints to the Independent Television Commission (ITC).
While this is undoubtedly true, I am reminded of the old argument about the 'off' switch. Or maybe even a remote control.
