FSF POLL: Were Sky right to sack Gray/Keys?
January 1, 2000
Were sky right?
Were Sky right to sack Andy Gray and Alan Partridge Richard Keys in the aftermath of their “prehistoric” comments being leaked? Do you think the broadcaster had no option given the presenters’ views alienated a hefty chunk of their audience and would guarantee disciplinary action in many workplaces? Or do you think the sacking is unfair and a blow to free speech since the pair believed they were talking in private and never expected their views to be aired?
