Brought to Book

One of the more interesting news stories of recent weeks has been the regular revelations of behind the scenes tv executives of phone in votes. As someone who has witnessed at close quarters how some of the media operates it is satisfying that the underlying culture of arrogance and lack of accountability is finally beginning to be exposed.
I was amazed to learn that even a vote to name the Blue Peter kitten had been interfered with by someone who no doubt thought (as so many with left wing leanings believe) that the people can not be trusted. So, for some reason best known to themselves the viewers choice of Socks was overruled by those who think they know best and the kitten was called Cookie instead!
