Go to the BBC I-Player link and listen from 23 minutes exactly, listen to the Arsenal caller who dares to politely suggest that Rooney may have taken a dive and won the penalty for Manu. Listen to the way in which Alan Green, an ugly version of Eamon Holmes if this is possible, is downright rude to 'Dominic' from London. Alan Green is not only biased, he is rude, offensive and brash when it is not at all appropriate or justifiable. He has a responsibility as a radio show host working for a public broadcaster to behave better than this. He behaves like a small child sticking their fingers in their ears when they hear something they don't want to hear, he just shouts and shouts and dismisses the caller by saying 'No, no, no, no, you are wrong, you are categorically wrong'.
If you like me think that Alan Green is a disgrace to journalism and was completely out of line with what he said to this caller, then please join me in complaining to the BBC here. A public sector broadcaster should not be able to get away with this kind of shoddy pap. Simply fill in the form and if you are feeling lazy then simply cut and paste this in as the complaint:
The way in which Alan Green spoke to the caller 'Dominic' at just after the 23 minute mark was completely unacceptable. He was rude, offensive and downright obnoxious. He didn't even allow the caller to politely make his point, whatever this was, he didn't even let him speak. He shouted him down as a small child would stick their fingers in their ears having been told not to do something naughty. Alan Green's rude manner and appalling behaviour also calls into question his claimed objectivity.
I feel Alan Green should be reprimanded by the BBC for his actions. It is not good enough that someone can be so very rude and offensive to someone who is ringing up to make a polite point, he is a license payer and as a public broadcaster the BBC should do much better than this. I am not impressed. Alan Green should apologise live on air to 'Dominic', whoever this is."
ps Adam has pointed out that it may well be complaining to Ofcom as well, the more people that do this the better, get complaining!
