I realize that this is now an old show, but I only listen to them after the fact, but I must comment on the Jimmy Savile topic and how the hosts/crew
at ATS treated this subject, as my general point goes towards a criticism of how topics on the show are conducted.
It appears in the case of this story that no one was very well informed, including Neph -- which is a surprise as he is a Brit and this scandal is
occurring there. Only one of the lesser complaints about this guy, Jimmy Sevile, was discussed. It is coming out that this guy was a serial
molester, sexually abusing women/girls/kids for decades, including psychiatric patients at a mental hospital, where this scumbag "volunteered." Yet
this extensive history of molestation by this fellow was not discussed. And consequently the panel wasn't terribly hard on this figure, some
chalking it up to cultural differences from the 70's.
I think the reason for this was that none of the panel members was very well informed on the subject. I bet at best these folks may have read the
thread or the OP of the thread before going on air, and I bet often times the on-air panel members just wing it entirely, basing their opinions on
what they hear during the show. If you people at ATS Live ACTUALLY WANT TO PROVIDE A QUALITY SHOW, you need to do your homework ahead of time on the
top five subjects you discuss.
Frankly, I'm never too impressed by the discussions of most any subjects on this show, but the discussion of the Jimmy Sevile case sunk to a new low
in ignorance -- REALLY. Seriously, shame on you all.
