‘Radio Times’ hits a new low

I’m sorry to see Radio Times continue its mission to become Feminist Times. The most reliably misandrous journalist on the publication is Alison Graham, who can usually be relied on to write articles guaranteed to get Harriet Harman and Cherie Blair cheering. But in the new edition (15-21 December) she’s hit a new low, and the publication with it. On page 53 we find her article, with the following title:

What a year that was… 2012. Alison Graham celebrates television’s triumphs, threats – and disasters

Four of the six items in the piece have gender-related content:

TRIUMPH OF THE YEAR: THE OLYMPICS AND PARALMYPIC GAMES

You’d be forgiven for concluding, from this piece, that no men participated in either Games. Only one athlete is mentioned by name:

… If I can have a good cry too, so much the better. On Super Saturday, I was awash and, in the Paralympics, the magnificent Ellie Simmonds became my heroine.

I DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING: ‘CALL THE MIDWIFE’

… Heidi Thomas’s reworking of real-life East End midwife Jennifer Worth’s memoirs was BBC1’s most successful drama launch in years…

PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE FOR: ‘PRISONER’S WIVES’

… this clever and very assured BBC1 drama about, yes, a clutch of prisoners’ wives, is one of my highlights.

SHOCK OF THE YEAR: EXPOSURE

The ITV1 documentary unmasked Jimmy Savile, a man who fashioned an entire career on abusing vulnerable youngsters… There are no words left to describe any of this, so let’s just leave it there as the dirty epitaph to a man who was rotten to his soul.

The article sticks rigidly to the feminist formula of relentlessly glorifying women and demonising men (even dead men will suffice). ‘There are no words left to describe’ how despicable this article is. The editor of Radio Times, Ben Preston, should hang his head in shame for allowing such a bigoted and misandrous articles in his publication. It’s not for nothing that we awarded him a ‘Toady’ some time ago.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
