According to the Sunday Express, Radio 4 is facing calls to curb swearing on the Today programme.
In front page report it noted that 8.10am on Friday, the words “bullshit” and “bastards” were were repeatedly used in a report about the abuse levelled at academics research chronic fatigue syndrome (ME).
The Express quotes LBC radio presenter Nick Ferrari: “You would never have this grotesque use of words on commercial radio. There is no justifable reason for Radio 4’s decision.”
A spokesman for Today told the paper: “Emails including abusive language were included in the report to demonstrate the level of intimidation involved in the campaign. We felt this was editorially justified.
