Bono Earns Language Rap for BBC

A FOUR-letter outburst by U2 singer Bono during Radio 1 DJ Simon Mayo’smorning show has upset a broadcasting watchdog.

Thursday, December 16 1999The Dublin rock idol let slip the f-word during a phone conversation withthe broadcaster as he spoke of his concerns about the state of the world.

The Broadcasting Standards Commission upheld a complaint from a listenerabout the use of bad language on the show, which was broadcast in September.

The BBC said the audience were more likely to take Bono’s language asevidence of his deeply-felt commitment to his cause than a casual attitudetowards his language.

However, a standards panel of the BSC decided "the use of the word hadexceeded acceptable boundaries for the time of broadcast".

Complaints were also upheld against a September edition of ITV’s The Billover bad language which the BSC thought was unsuitable for a familyaudience.

An edition of Soccer Extra on the Sky Sports 2 channel upset a viewer whenanalyst Rodney Marsh cracked a joke about Stan Collymore and Ulrika Jonsson.

Soccer star Collymore attacked his then girlfriend Jonsson in a bar in Parislast year.

The BSC upheld the complaint because Marsh’s comment seemed to endorseviolence against women.
