The World Needs To Grow A Pair

As the co-owner of an Internet radio station and being an Internet radio DJ I consider myself part of the media and as a member of the media I have the following thought. (Note this is my opinion and not the opinion of Bullspike Radio or any station I’m affiliated with.)
The fact that 2 Australian DJs lost their jobs and are now wondering if they’re going to get hit with murder charges over a radio phone prank sickens me. These DJs did what stations like Z100 and radio personalities like Howard Stern have done for years. They did not force nor tell the nurse to commit suicide. The nurse could have resigned, asked for a leave of absence, or filed a lawsuit. Suicide is never an answer and the fact that the world is condemning two individuals who until recently got paid to prank people on the radio is a sad state if affairs for us as a global society. The Royal Family even joked about it after the prank call and if they are all ok with it then everyone including the nurse who chose poorly to commit suicide should’ve been ok with it.
Unless every prank personality for the last 50 years from both TV and radio are going to be condemned for their actions then we should not condemn these two Australian DJs.
We as a world are becoming too sensitive. Lets all collectively grow a pair.
Rant over.
