I felt quite strongly about the the foolishness and lack of respect of the two dj's in the beginning....and whilst I still do feel this about the prank.....To me it as become obvious that the two DJ's have just become scapegoats for the bigger picture.
It seems the prank call was pre-recorded and the go ahead to air it was made by the legal team and more than one boss of the station. Where are the
people within the station and it's legal teams who approved this prank to be aired? I haven't seen anyone come forward to accept this
responsibility....so far it looks like the pair of DJ's are the public face of this prank gone wrong....but what about the others whose job it was to
decide whether to air it and as such was their responsibility and not the DJ's?
No one knows the mental state of the nurse in question prior to the prank......but we do know that the decision to air the prank meant that the two
nurses involved came under global scrutiny and where the laughing stock of the world for being "taken in" by this prank.....and perhaps more hard to
swallow, had their credibility questioned in such a public and global way. I don't suppose as a nurse that's anything she had ever thought she
would have to suffer and signed up for.
I think we have to remember that as a nurse she didn't actually break any codes of conduct by transferring a call......
