A Hum doozy….

OK, so I'm not watching big brother this year, but it's hard not to get sucked into knowing a little bit about it….so basically I was having an interesting conversation with Helen the other day about what will happen after the winner is announced. So, I think I'm right in saying that Pete (the guy with Tourette's) is pretty certain to win. So the question that arose is….will/should he be allowed to give the usual live interviews on day–time tv, like all the other winners in the past?.....the obvious answer is yes of course he should. But what about tv standards – i'm meaning watershed issues. Surely there'll be lots of horrified people complaining about him randomly swearing live on daytime tv. But then, surely u can't discriminate due to illness. An interesting one, and one that tv standards agencies surely can't win, no matter which way they decide…. thoughts?
