Finding offence in programmes

I complete a regular media survey detailing what I watch and listen to.

Recently though they have added a new question for each programme:

"Was there anything in the programme that you personally found offensive? "

I find this to be a worrying development. More evidence of the Daily Mail's chilling effect on our culture?

I agree it's a worrying development, but I don 't think it's evidence of the Daily Mail's chilling effect. I think that what is happening is that the DM refelcts accurately the way a proportion of our population react. Now that is *really* worrying.

It's worrying if they don;t ask WHY you were offended.

Jennie,

Maybe they would if I had said "yes" to any of them, I don't know.
