Of Protests And Pressure Groups

Pressure groups are protesting over the content of TV shows. But should they be allowed to influence what gets shown? “It is now relatively easy for small numbers of protesters to organise what may appear to be mass protests. It is not clear how many emails originated from Britain and how many from America. But more important, we are not running some kind of Pop Idol competition in which the greatest number of votes gets a programme pulled from the schedule.”
