Voice Of The Mirror: Name and shame TV's guilty heads.
But the reaction of the television bosses has not budged.
They are still sorry, still investigating, still insisting that it won't happen again.
And still determined that the only heads to roll will be those of a few junior producers and researchers.
The people who run television have an enormous amount of power. But apparently they don't believe that comes with accepting responsibility.
THEY are the ones who lay down what sort of programmes are wanted. THEY are the ones who demand ever-higher viewing figures.
And, of course, THEY are the ones earning huge salaries.
Saying sorry simply is not enough. We need action, not simply words.
Let us hear what changes they will make to their programming. How they will clean up television and drive out the cheaters.
And let us hear which of them is prepared to accept ultimate responsibility and go.
