It seems that Jonathan Ross is back in the headlines on his first week back at work. The News of the World (just about says it all, doesn't it?) published a (in my opinion) biased article about the incident:

http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news/142822/Jonathan-Ross-does-sick-OAP-sex-gag-on-Radio-2.html

And now people want him to be sacked. What do you all think of it? Personally, I think the News of the World has something against Jonathan Ross. I mean, just look at the article. Repetitive use of the words sick, mega-bucks and shocking not to mention the quote "[The broadcast] came just after 10 o’clock in the morning when families and children were listening." Surely they would have known about Jonathan Ross's previous activities last October and knew that there would probably be some controversial content in the show.

No-one has complained about the incident, so where's the problem?

He's done it once, he shouldn't get away with it again. We all know he will though. He earns the BBC far to much money, it pays to be a bit controversial sometimes.
Thats my two cents anyway.

Lol, 'families and children were listening'

Anyone know any families that collectively listen to Radio 2? Or any single child for that matter?

I really don't care what happens to Ross. I don't think he should be paid as much as he is anyway, regardless of whether he feels the need to be controversial.

I agree.

After the first time, he should have been given another chance (Like anyone), but now I would say he has blown it, and he should never be allowed to work in the Broadcasting Industry again (Either Radio or TV)

Honestly, who gives a [censored]?
If people have the time to complain about some joke someone on tv makes, they have something lacking in their life.
