One of the dickhead DJs linked to the suicide of a British nurse has been awarded the title of "Top Jock'' by his employer!
Michael Christian was joint winner of the metro category, in the contest that recognises Southern Cross Austereo network's "best in
|I may be a prize dick...|
but now I'm the TOP Prick!
Christian, who now works at Fox FM in Melbourne, says regardless of everything that's happened, he's still at the top of his game, "...so it felt good to see my name at the top of the final leader board.'' Such ARROGANCE! Such ZERO COMPASSION! Such SOULESS SHIT!
This amazingly callous in-house honour comes six months after this bloody buffoon broadcaster and his offsider Mel Greig made a prank call to a London hospital, following which nurse Jacintha Saldanha took her own life.
In a statement, Southern Cross Austereo said it was "thrilled" to crown Christian. THRILLED!!! But Federal Comms Minister Stephen Conroy has criticised the award, saying it was not appropriate to give it to Christian: "There were some very serious consequences of the prank, and to be seen to be rewarding people so soon after such an event is in bad taste." Interesting that the other prankster, Mel Greig, has been cut off by management, and has no job...while Christian gets patted on the back for his 'brilliant broadcasting'! There're strong rumours that Greig was stopped from sending condolences to Ms Saldanha's family.
The awards' judging panel - Austereo's head of content Craig Bruce, Fox FM content director Dave Cameron and 2Day FM content director Derek Bargwanna - should do some serious soul-searching, if they believe fake phonecalls constitute 'good radio', especially ones with such disastrous consequences! SHAME ON THEM!
Following the original dickhead dial-up, 2Day FM's Facebook page was hit by 13,000 complaints. Wonder how many they'll receive now, for THIS acknowledgement of Top Fuckwitism!
