VOICE OF THE DAILY Mirror: Coward of Channel 4.

CHANNEL 4 boss Andy Duncan really earned his pounds 549,000 salary yesterday.

When asked by the Daily Mirror to justify the bullying and racism that has poisoned Celebrity Big Brother he gave a one-fingered salute and ran away.

Such cowardly yobbishness personifies a TV channel that has deserted its roots and sold its soul to the lowest common denominator.

Mr Duncan - and more disturbingly his board - have consistently refused to justify broadcasting such offensive and upsetting material.

They insisted last night that Danielle Lloyd's comment that Shilpa Shetty should go back home and learn to speak English was not racist... Incredible.

Despite a massive public outcry, Channel 4 has continued to broadcast the rantings and ravings of these ignorant minds.

Mr Duncan's stubborn refusal to explain his actions - and Channel 4 board's seeming ignorance of the damage Celebrity Big Brother is doing - is shameful.

It's time all concerned showed us some decency and respect.
