Evangelical Christian uses the word “naivety”
Angela Sarkis, the only member of the BBC Governors Programme Complaints Committee to vote against supporting the decision to show Jerry Springer: The Opera, last night accused her fellow governors of naivety.
In looking at it very carefully it was quite clear that staff had followed guidelines. The issue I felt was that the management showed a degree of naivety of the fact that there would be complaints coming from people of faith. There was a great deal of naivety.
The broadcast attracted 63,000 complaints, largely due to Christian pressure groups cottoning on to the web as a tool for convenient one-click whingeing. 55,000 of them were received before the programme was shown.
No doubt a grisly fate awaits them in an eternal post-death torture chamber.
