The BBC at work

Oh how we laughed

Jonathan Ross Jonathan Ross
It's three months since the Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand affair; at the time we wrote this post. For those of you who have forgotten, (well you never know!) this was when Brand, usually described as a comedian, and Ross, who is a TV show presenter, phoned semi-retired actor Andrew Sachs so Brand could taunt him about his affair with his grand-daughter Georgina Bailey. Oh, you may say, not that again! Yes indeed, did you ever think it would go away? At the time the Mainstream Media divided into differing camps, one was very anti- Brand and Ross, the other more supportive. The anti B&R media was led by the Daily Mail who, much to the chagrin of many bright young things, showed an ability to push a campaign in the direction that suited them as cleverly as any global warming activist. The supporters of B&R were to be found mainly within the pages of the Guardian and the Independent. That newspapers normally given the liberal/left tag were doing this was to be expected, particularly the Guardian, as they employ Brand as a football correspondent (how very laddish!).

These two characters are in many ways very different.
