Stu Peters, the Manx Radio presenter who was suspended for challenging the concept ‘did not breach programme code’ says broadcasting watchdog of “white privilege” [LINK]
Manx Radio did not breach the programme code according to the Island’s broadcasting watchdog.
It follows comments made by Stu Peters earlier this month on the station’s phone-in Late Show, where the presenter told a black caller ‘I’ve had no more privilege in my life than you have. I’m a white man, you’re a black man’.
Following complaints, Mr Peters was suspended by Manx Radio whilst the issue was referred to the Communications Commission, which is standard practice for licensees.
It’s today (24 June) published the outcome of the investigation, which found the Late Show presenter had not breached the Broadcasting Programme Code.
