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.
