TOPIC: Radio Two and Michael Jackson
#180194
Radio Two and Michael Jackson 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
All day playing Jacko's greatest hits and a good thing too but remind me - will they be doing a Gary Glitter tribute? Or is it only convicted vile perverts that get banned? Or slightly convicted (like DLT - banned Top of the Pops)? Or acquitted vile perverts like me? Or does my wrongful 2001 conviction negate my 2018 acquittal? It's so hard to understand, Director General Hall's dodgy tabloid morality.

But Michael Jackson was never convicted of anything, and the others were, so it is not really the same thing.

I hope after your mistaken conviction is officially overturned there will be non stop Johnny Reggaeing on the radio!

No Honey that's their excuse, their justification. Spineless executives use excuses as the crutches for their moral turpitude. They are the enemy!

I agree. I dont know what difference playing a song makes,but you can see the logic.

I dont think there was a lot of MJ played in-between the accusations and his acquittal though, which is unfair even by their own standards.

I agree there is lots of confusion in this area but if someone is convicted then in my opinion the BBC can have its rules and treat them differently.

Although they can have this rule I don't think the BBC or any other media outlet should ban artistic works because of the sexual behaviour of the artist. What I dislike is the fact those rules are so inconsistent. There are convicted artists such as George Michael or Chuck Berry who are not banned.

I don't believe there should be a ban on convicted artists but if there is one then it should be clear and consistently applied. Unfortunately Mr King you still have a conviction against your name so until that is wiped off you are likely to fall foul of the BBC rules on this matter

Yes it's the hypocrisy and inconsistency I hate. George Michael and Boy George? Hey they are popular; play them. Cliff falsely accused? Stop playing him unless he's acquitted. Phil Spector? Well he's only the producer and it was murder which isn't that serious. Child abuse? Block everything and no more Kevin Spacey movies 'cause he turned out to be gay.

Is there an offical BBC policy on this matter? If so has it been published, if not is it possible to request it on a freedom of information basis. As a public body they surely have to be able to explain why Gary Glitter doesn't get played yet its OK to play Chuck Berry.

Does anyone know exactly what the BBC policy is towards playing music which contains contributions from people with criminal records.

Re:Radio Two and Michael Jackson 2 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
I wonder who decides which of the crimes are acceptable?
To me, running amok in a car is pretty serious, but not, it seems, to the BBC.

I am very unconvinced of Phil Spector's guilt.

Highly unlikely it was a minor hit many years ago and wasn't played much before the conviction anyway, much like Glitter who did have very big success for a couple of years.

It's not because he turned out to be gay, there are lots of gay actors on tv and in Hollywood, Ellen Green, Rupert Everett, Helen DeGeneres. It is because he was accused of sexual misconduct, although nothing has yet been proven. They would have written contracts that give them the option to remove the actors if there was any scandal. If they did have Spacey in their films, a lot of people would be put of watching them and the studios would lose lots of money. I agree that he shouldn't be sacked as he hasn't been convicted of anything.
