Channel 4 slammed by watchdog for shameless plugging

BBC News, Monday 6th Jun 2016
Channel 4 breached regulations on product placement in an episode of its quiz show Countdown, media Ofcom watchdog has ruled. A complaint was received about the 21 March programme after host Nick Hewer referred to the Ideal Home Show “at Olympia… until 3 April”. Later, guest Mark Foster talked about being an ambassador for P&O Cruises, referring to activities on offer. Ofcom ruled that both references were “unduly prominent” and “promotional”.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
