More political correctness from the BBC:
The reason that shows such as Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You? often have male-dominated panels is perfectly simple. Men cope better with the competitive nature of these programmes – indeed, they often enjoy it – and the result is often comedy gold, appreciated by license fee payers. By contrast, many female contestants on the programmes have been strikingly unfunny – not all of them, to be fair.
From the article:
Panel shows such as QI and Mock the Week will no longer have all-male line-ups, the BBC’s director of TV has said. ‘We’re not going to have panel shows on any more with no women on them,’ Danny Cohen told the Observer. ‘You can’t do that. It’s not acceptable.’
I don’t write to ITV whining that Loose Women has all-female panels wittering on at mind-numbing length about utter trivia, do I? No. Why is there a problem with all-male panels, but not all-female panels? Because feminists whine and politically correct men such as Danny Cohen put up the white flag. It’s the same response as husbands have to a nagging wife, ‘Anything for an easy life’. So the feminists get what they want, and BBC shows decline in quality.
Is it ‘acceptable’ to Danny Cohen that there’ll be no female players in England’s soccer team in the forthcoming World Cup? And if it is acceptable, why?
