50,000 Protest Springer On BBC

Some 50,000 complaints have poured into the BBC about the airing of Jerry Springer, The Opera. The complaints make it the most-protested show in BBC history. “Critics say the broadcast has more than 400 swear words, and shows Jesus in a nappy admitting he is ‘a bit gay’. Bishop Michael Reid of the Pentecostal Church in Brentwood, Essex, who is leading the protest by an alliance of Christian groups, described the musical as ‘filth’.”
