A donor has suggested we put up a post concerning TV and radio appearances, for people who might be unaware of our YouTube library. The library is maintained by the gentleman behind the ‘ManWomanMyth’ and ‘Humanity Bites’ YouTube channels, for which we’re very grateful. Our library:
Most of the pieces are of BBC radio interviews and discussions, with Ray Barry or myself. Some are of pieces we weren’t involved in, but are of considerable interest to our supporters, such as the recent Newsnight piece on domestic abuse which was the subject of our official complaint to the BBC – to which we haven’t yet had a response.
The most-visited piece was drawn from Channel 4 News, in which Kat Banyard made an outrageous claim about the frequency with which schoolgirls experience sexual harassment, a claim not challenged by the relentlessly feminist-friendly Jon Snow. We publicly challenged Kat Banyard to retract her claim, and she hasn’t done so. The piece has the most ‘downvotes’ of any piece we’ve posted. Why would someone downvote a piece about a prominent feminist caught making a misleading statement? The obvious explanation is they don’t want that publicised. Wouldn’t it be better for Kat Banyard to publicly admit her ‘mistake’?
