There’s been widespread anger today, as the populist muck spreader and sh*t-stuffed teddy bear Eamonn Holmes was quite perversely compared to a ‘news broadcaster.’
The comments came after Eamonn Holmes said the following on Sky “News:”
“This is going back to the 70s and to the 80s, the type of thing you were seeing that was bad about Hillsborough, for instance.”
When Eamonn ran into some criticism for comparing the recently vindicated Liverpool fans to hooligans (and regardless of how many times he says he didn’t, we’ve got his exact words on tape), he followed up his earlier comments as follows:
Because as we all know, what the Hillsborough families have struggled with most is members of the Murdoch press having to answer for their hateful and unfounded smears.
However, the real problem came when people began referring to a Eamonn as a ‘news broadcaster’ – implying that as part of his job he broadcasts what could broadly be considered as ‘news’ – and not just the rancid, tabloid bile that his channel actually disseminates.
We spoke to some people on the street to see how they felt about Eamonn being referred to as a ‘news broadcaster:’
“Well, it’s just bollocks, innit. It’s like comparing a chamber pot to a ming vase, because although they might be a similar shape, only one of them is completely full of sh*t.”
“Sorry – are you telling me that Sky News is supposed to be like – you know – actual news? I thought it was the modern-day Spitting Image – only with less realistic puppets.”
“Rupert Murdoch is going to be upset that one of his employees linked the Hillsborough victims to hooliganism. Although – to be fair – I am only 2 years old, which is probably why that statement seems perfectly plausible to me.”
In case you were in the dark about how reprehensible Eamonn is, his past controversies have included:
- Telling a gay couple “You are not meant to have children. You are going against nature!”
- Describing a singer as “retarded” on air,
- Suggesting rape victims should just get taxis,
- And just recently, claiming that Prince didn’t appeal to male fans because, “we find it hard to relate to him, because there’s that flamboyancy that you had with Davie Bowie as well.”
Which is obviously just a bizarre claim to make – especially considering how there are probably more male fans of Prince and David Bowie on the Isle of Mull than there are fans of Eamonn in the entire galaxy.
