Kelvin McKenzie on the BBC's payroll

Recommended Posts

It's being widely talked about on RAWK and people are registering their distaste that Mckenzie is hosting a programme on world cup scandals.

 

This is my email to the BBC:

 

done, i've had half but here it is:

 

Dear BBC,

 

How laughable it is that you choose to commission Kelvin McKenzie to comment on footballing scandals.

 

Not only is this a waste of license payers money but even moreso considering his own campaign when at Talk sport to prevent the BBC's rights to coverage of events, and his consistent soapboxing that the license fee was a rip off. This was a constant editorial agenda during his tenure there.

 

The very fact that this man is willing to compromise his own views for a few quid is evidence of his moral fibre.

 

The very fact that you are willing to bring such a person on board is evidence that he was ironically correct.

 

Another irony is that by employing this man you are laughably reneging on Lord Reith's long standing mandate that the BBC is there to inform, educate and entertain.

 

In fact through hiring this man you are urnitating on the very grave of the BBC's moral existence, a similar act which Mr McKenzie himself once wrongly accused football fans of.

 

Just what is the meaning behind your choice of presenter and subject matter in fact?

 

Talking about exposing Wayne Rooney's brothel scandal, then in the next news break reporting on how we need him for the world cup?

 

Hypocrisy on a sickening level. It's not balanced reporting. What exactly is the editorial value of this programme?

 

It's sad that the company with which we are all stakeholders should compromise itself so much on a tentatively scandalous because it's also so short of ideas and creativity to produce original and quality programming.

 

Strangely enough, your choice of subject matter and presenter in this instance is the best comic tragedy the BBC have produced for a long time. Although sadly this seems to have happened more within the production unit than in the actual show itself.

Just saw the f***ing fascist c*** on newsnight. wtf is going on at the BBC? Does anyone know whether he would receive a fee for his appearance?

 

Looks like another complaint will be heading the beebs way if i find out that they are trying to employ this man on a regular basis.

Finally had a reply (sent my email on 11th May):

 

Dear ...

 

Thank you for your e-mail 'Kelvin MacKenzie's World Cup Scandals'.

 

Firstly, I apologise for the delay in our reply. We know our correspondents appreciate a quick response, and it is a matter of regret to us that you have had to wait for so long on this occasion.

 

I understand that you addressed your e-mail to Bob Shennan. Mr Shennan has personally given authority for the team in his office to read all the mail addressed to him and assign it accordingly. They have an extensive knowledge of the workings of the BBC and have considerable experience and understanding of his role. They will immediately refer any e-mails to him that require his personal attention or direct them elsewhere in the Corporation where necessary.

 

I understand that you are unhappy with Kelvin MacKenzie being involved with a football programme. The two part series, called 'Kelvin MacKenzie's World Cup Scandals', looked at tabloid newspaper coverage of some the great scandals surrounding past World Cup tournaments.

 

We realise that opinions about presenters vary considerably but it is a rare television or radio personality of any kind who meets the approval of everyone. As the former editor of a tabloid newspaper, Kelvin MacKenzie, is hugely experienced in this field. He has reported on a number of other issues for various broadcasters and is well qualified to present programmes on the subjects of scandal and football.

 

May I take this opportunity to thank you again for taking time to contact the BBC.

 

Regards

 

Elaine Hunter
