Sky Television have refused to explain the circumstances that led them to broadcast incorrect subtitles accusing Celtic fans of racism. Consequently, Celtic refused the broadcaster permission to attend the press conference previewing tonight’s SPFL game against Hearts.
Celtic reported the matter to Ofcom, who confirmed they are assessing the issue. Sky apologised for their broadcast, but appear intent on bunkering down to protect those responsible.
Before you attempt a cover-up, you should first check if everyone knows you are attempting a cover-up. Sky are busted, they behaved atrociously. This is a cover-up, which is also atrocious, and will only hold if Ofcom take no action.
Who authored the tampered subtitles and who authorised the hooky material for broadbcast? If Sky were genuinely concerned, they would answer accordingly.
