Another attempt to silence John Humphrys?

A disgraceful article appeared in the Times on Saturday with the headline Radio's king of rude launches another salvo at Labour 'liars'. "King of Rude" is nonsense and the whole article, written by Tom Baldwin and Andrew Pierce, is a crude smear. And who "leaked" the video of a speech, not intended for public ears, to the Times? Why is that nauseating article written in such tones of outrage? Who is the "source close to the BBC Governors"? One also close to Qinetic perhaps. The article concludes,

Or more? The various members of government whom he challenges so well would evidently like to see John Humphrys replaced. They are hardly likely to embrace his view that: Yes. The Today Programme provides the Opposition missing elsewhere and often brings a smile of relief to those of us sickened by high handed arrogance and ignorance. Who can forget Mr Blair's incoherent attempts at justification last September?

The BBC says that Michael Grade has "ordered an investigation" and a transcript. What nonsense it all is. Thank all the gods for the grasp and grit of John Humphrys. He may be arrogant and outspoken - but we need him desperately.

Of course the sycophants and the dark cabal want him silenced.. He is the voice gently and humorously reminding us that the Emperor has no clothes on.
