White BBC presenter loses job after 18 years to due diversity policy - Rocket75 - 10-02-2016 07:03 PM

Alienating a great many of your audience, or viewers, or readers as the case may be, with disproportionate representation, so the precious few feel included.


http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/jon-holmes-claims-he-lost-his-bbc-radio-job-because-he-was-white-and-male/news-story/d92fca709a9c36787c5667b4b5017b68


Quote:A BBC radio performer and writer says the reason he was axed from a show he has appeared on for 18 years is because it is being recast with “more women and diversity”.

Jon Holmes, part of the team behind the Now Show, a hit BBC Radio 4 program, tweeted about the reasons for his dismissal, The Sun reports.

In a tweet announcing his dismissal he said: “Sad to announce I’ve been axed from @BBCNowShow as ‘we want to recast with more women and diversity’ Tsk. And I didn’t even punch a producer.”

He has been a writer and performer on the show since the first broadcast in 1997.
He has said following his sacking he has heard from other people who have been rejected based on positive discrimination.

Later adding some of those responsible for setting up the BBC’s diversity policies had got in touch to say political correctness had “got out of hand”.

The broadcasting corporation has come under fire in the past for diversity rows after BBC presenter Miriam O’Reilly won a case for age discrimination after she was let go from the TV show Countryfile, and later in 2014 the then director of BBC Television Danny Cohen said all-male panels on comedy series would no longer be accepted.

The 47-year-old, part of the program with a weekly audience of two million, was told his fate during an “awkward” phone call with a producer.

In an article for the Mail on Sunday he wrote: “Should I, as a white man (through no fault of my own), be fired from my job because I am a white man?”

Adding: “But, after I tweeted the news, I was contacted privately (quietly and off the record, because people are terrified of saying the wrong thing) by many presenters, actors and even agents who are now being told, and I quote: ‘We love your client. He’s perfect for the role. But we’re not allowed to even invite him in for a meeting because we’ve been told to cast someone Asian’.”

Trevor Phillips, former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, told the newspaper: “They are misunderstanding what the point of the diversity drive was about. This sounds like somebody who is basically climbing their way up the greasy ladder and they think hiring black and Asian talent is part of what they have got to do to look good.

“But they don’t genuinely believe black or Asian people are as good as white people.”

Others took to Twitter to voice their understanding of the BBC decision, which they said was part of helping to level the playing field.

The BBC recently announced new diversity targets to ensure women make up half of the staff numbers by 2020.

The corporation is also aiming to increase people with a black, Asian and minority ethnic background to 15 per cent, with lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people should make up eight per cent of the staff.


Mr Holmes has won two Baftas, eight Sony awards and two British Comedy awards.

A BBC spokesman said: “Our comedy shows are constantly evolving and it is time to create opportunities for new regulars as the show returns this autumn.”

Diversity = No straight, white men.
Diversity = No dissent from left wing ideology.

Ergo, fuck diversity.

Everyone on CNN is Gay,a woman,black or black and gay so I guess they're doing pretty good

He's certainly come a long way from his days in Los Santos.

Watching BBC OR ITV in England, you're more likely to see a parrot presenting than a white male.
Virtually EVERY one is Asian or black and usually female. Oh and outside the news a high number of overt (or not so overt) homosexuals.

And as for a WORKING/lower middle class accent on the news... you're more likely to see a flying pig.

And to me, this is NOT leftism. It is the cancer of globalism, a far right invention.
Just look how much they hate white people or people with non posh accents.

Makes my fucking blood boil.......................... And the femicunts still complain that women aren't fairly represented in the media?

G T F O

Hope this guy is able to sue those motherfuckers at the BBC.

People have to see how fucked up this is. If this guy can be fired due to his race then anyone can and that's a dangerous precedent.

When you feed at the trough of progressivism, don't be surprised when you get thrown from it.

The BBC slapped itself across his face.

If you're planning on constantly pushing for a total realignment of our political terminology you might want to build some rep points first rather than rolling in here and bitching about the drapes.

Just some friendly advice. This "left/right" nitpicking is going to get old pretty quickly.

I've seen the inside of a bunch of departments at the BBC (i can pm quasi-proof if needed) ,each with many hundred people in them. In each department I saw 2 black people, tops.

diversity/affirmative action is really about putting white women into the workplace, not ethnic minorities. the "diversity" part of the “more women and diversity” is just to muddy the waters of what they actually mean. I think this flies under the radar, because this demographic (white women) are now every prominent in loads of industries, so it isnt as noticeable.

There were plenty of "women & diversity in the workplace" initiatives whilst i was there, but the actual content of these workshops was just focusing on women, and I only saw 1-2 non-white women the whole time i was there. So it became focused on white women by default. or maybe by design.

affirmative action has benefited white women more than any other group, yet ethnic minorities somehow catch the flak for this. Most fortune 500 companies are full of white women, with only a few token minorities.


So as far as the bbc is concerned, when you hear then discuss "diversity", they are just really discussing getting more white women into the workfoce.

And i don't think this is just limited to the bbc. I've interviewed at huge companies in the UK, like Goldman Sachs, Ford, ARM etc, and I havent seen anything to contradict the idea that affirmative action is pretty much for white women, and then some token minorites so they don't get sued.

Don't watch BBC, don't read BBC, boycott.

They get paid regardless.

Best you can do is mercilessly mock the BBC.

One of the best ways to argue against gender and racial quotas is to mention the need for socioeconomic quotas. Everything from becoming a lawyer or doctor to buying your own home depends most on what class you are born into, rather than your race, gender, sexual orientation or religion.

SJW fuckery is simply too unsophisticated to justify its typical kinds of affirmative action whilst simultaneously denying any related need for socioeconomic quotas.

Ever notice how the biggest career feminists are typically VERY middle-class (read: privileged) or from wealthy families? Caroline Criado-Perez, the Jane Austin banknote bandit, comes to mind. Her dad Carlos became the CEO of Safeway in the UK.

Frenchcorp

You are totally correct. If you deal with the tax office or local government (etc etc) it is largely staffed by barely comptent middle class white women. Even traditionally male departments like planning.

The public sector is even worse than the private sector.

Pretty much all media hubs are a lost cause anyway, I don't think we will see a change in the propaganda being spread regardless of the hiring policies now or in the future. The narrative must be met, until they go bankrupt because no one will watch or listen. I think we are a long way off from this and the terminal illness will drag out far longer than my lifetime.

Now, if you want to talk about this same diversity initiative in sports broadcasting, I'm open to suggestion on how to properly rid ourselves of tomboy announcers and pre-game hosts. I like to watch my favorite college team, usually carried by ESPN- it's always the same raspy sounding bitch's voice doing the play-by-play. It's almost unwatchable. As more of the older men retire, I know how their positions will be filled. It's only a matter of time before it's Alice Michaels and Christina Collinsworth on Sunday Night NFL games.

Same goes for the early shows on game day. They have some of the best resources to produce a quality program now that they have so many former players and coaches on the panel, but here sits this woman who has never played the sport, even as a child, trying to fit in and be funny, when she could be asking great questions to these hall of famers about the X's and O's. Instead, it's "Cam Newton seems like a nice guy for giving away footballs. Don't you agree with me? And did you see Antonio Brown twerking? So funny. I think they are going to fine him for that. Do you like end zone dancing? I like dancing. I went dancing with the girls the other night. Hahahaha Up next, we go to Atlanta to say good morning to some ugly woman named Andrea to get the weather inside the Georgia Dome!"

ESPN is the most cucked network on TV. Sure CNN etc are worse but ESPN panders to women who don't even watch in the first place.


RE: White BBC presenter loses job after 18 years to due diversity policy - godfather dust - 10-03-2016 09:52 AM

In MA I stick to Comcast the sports, pretty much all "bro" types on the talk shows. A month or two ago a couple of them were commenting on a guests tits, they knew why she was invited. Instant firing on ESPN.

(I don't sit around watching sports all day, watch every Patriots game catch the other teams here and there.)

Is it financially viable for them to do this?

I like the idea that the free market will correct for this cuckery.

For TV reducing straight, right-wing white men will turn off conservative men and women at a subconscious level since we're anti-mass immigration and inclined towards traditional gender roles.

In other companies worldwide women work less hours, are more likely to sue for discrimination and have less ambition. I can see those companies stagnating and dying.

From HIS perspective, it isn't Leftism. OK, so he might not be clued up on political semantics in the current year, but essentially what he said is accurate of the British state broadcaster.

It is a confusing framework to understand. On the ground the Left/Right paradigm still exists. The Globalist/Nationalist paradigm is harder to articulate, the powers that be are globalist, and many of them face opposition from Nationalists, many of who are not in power, yet. It's not a straightforward thing to articulate.

I used to work in the ticket sale department for the Baltimore Orioles baseball team and I can't begin the count the numerous blonde eye-candy I was surrounded by who didn't know the first thing about sports.

If you're white, pretty, and female just show up to any sports team and management will "coach you up", even if you don't know the difference between a touchdown and a home run (this mostly applies for the upper-rung sports management jobs). If you are male or a female of any other ethnic background, you better be able to spit out the batting average of the shortstop of the 1934 Philadelphia Athletics on a whim.

That is what I was thinking. Where were men like him when diversity was flooding in to the lower decks of the Titanic?

Probably waltzing on the upper class decks enjoying all the exotic food diversity brings. Now the stricken ship is listing, the upper middle class cosmopolitans are taking note.

This is very reminiscent of those production quotas in centrally planned socialist economies. Instead of sugar or steel, quotas the current fad consists of gay and minority quotas, but it's the same piece of shit regardless.

In the past, the East enjoyed economic Marxism, now the West is blessed with Cultural Marxism. I wonder if the Western variant will collapse just as spectacularly as the Eastern one did.
