Breach of rule for talkSPORT

The latest Broadcast Bulletin from Ofcom contains details of a complaint made against Charlie Wolf on talkSPORT duing a phone-in on the station at 5:30am, 4th December 2005.

Two listeners objected to a presenter referring to a young American woman, who was killed by a military bulldozer while protesting in the Gaza strip, as ?scum?. The complainants thought that, whatever the presenter?s politics, comments such as this were unnecessary when talking about a civilian who was killed while protesting.

In the same bulletin, two listeners objected to a presenter?s remarks during a phone-in discussion with Alex Belfield in Capital Gold at 10:30pm on 19th October 2005.

Both cases breached Ofcom rule 2.3 (Generally accepted standards). Read the full bulletin by clicking here.
