The perils of radio phone-ins

It looks like Andrew McCann’s been caught barking up the wrong (academic) tree! Fair play to him for keeping all the responses up there though (including the damning one from the academic concerned!).

Adds: That’s nothing compared to the story about the sound engineer at Radio Dijla, in Baghdad who left the phone presenter talking with one caller, whilst he went onto the roof with his gun to return hostile fire!

Update: Andrew apologises and issues challenge to Johann Hari.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
