Complaint response about JV's use of Twitter


Thanks for your recent e-mails regarding Jeremy Vine.

With regards to Jeremy’s usage of Twitter, the BBC is comfortable that he can manage his time effectively. The BBC wishes to encourage interactivity on all platforms and we are aware of compliance issues and as media evolves we are looking at how we use that interactivity.

With regards to his recent tweet, what was published was the script from the opening of the programme, as read on air, so it was in the public domain and there is no conflict with Twitter. It was a question designed to initiate discussion and was written by the producer in the context of the history of the Chief of Staff of the IRA. The BBC is quite comfortable that it was acceptable.

I trust this explains the BBC’s view on your complaints and thanks again for taking the time to contact the BBC.

Yours Sincerely

Indeed, unbelievable. I suppose as JV only pushes a few buttons and reads a prepared script then he can manage his time. Maybe the BBC should sack his producer

The only good thing I have to say about JV show is they play some good music at times.Very Doubtful JV picks it as his music knowledge is far below that of Ken's.

So I can say JV is an incompotent Tosser paid too much&although it may not be proved in court then it is intended to invoke discussion;-)

If u didnt hear Thurs Ken's bit then funny!
