Sensible decision.
I think that on balance I also agree with the decision.

As things stand Brand has not even been arrested, let alone charged or found guilty. The allegations are very serious. I imagine that his lawyers will also be on the look out for potential defamatory comments online.

Whilst in theory you could have a thread for the Dispatches episode to cover the surrounding presentation related elements it could easier veer into posts that could cause problems for users, mods/admin and the site. Allowing a thread where posts are pre-approved might have been an option, but that creates extra work for mods & admin.

The wider subject of sexism in comedy and behaviour or some male comedians in general is probably a topic better suited here rather than pres.cafe.

Too many examples, perhaps, but still pretty disgraceful for a major broadcaster.

It's no surprise who the main culprit of this is...

Is there any way to mute the names of the five 'News channel presenters' so that I don't have to constantly see the same speculation about a situation that nobody on the forum knows anything about?

Someone really suggested Jacqui Oatley to replace Holly Willoughby on This Morning.

And I said Adrian Chiles and Christine Lampard, even though that would never happen now.

At least that suggestion was sensible.
