The office reopens tomorrow following the Xmas break, but I thought I’d get a few pieces out of the way this evening. My thanks to a number of people for sending me this BBC piece on 23 December. The start of the piece:
An Argentine radio host accused of misogynist diatribes has been ordered to host a feminist guest every week for five months as part of a deal with prosecutors, reports say.
Angel Etchecopar must not interrupt his guests for 10 minutes, nor can he criticise them after they finish.
It comes after prosecutors accused him of gender discrimination.
He had used his programme on Radio 10 to attack feminists as “feminazis” and “disgusting people”, Le Monde reported.
Prosecutor Federico Vilalba Diaz told La Nación newspaper that Etchecopar had been charged with “disrespectful, insulting, denigrating and discriminatory” outbursts against women.
“But Etchecopar came to the inquiry with a repentant attitude and showed himself to be very different from the personality I had seen in the media,” Mr Diaz said.
