People are easily led

I hate the fact that Jonathan Ross has been suspended and Russell Brand has resigned and the Radio 2 Controller has resigned over an misjudged prank that would have gone unnoticed, and in fact did go unnoticed until British Red Tops whipped the braying Mob up into a frenzy. What's next? A spot of book burning?
I've spoken to a few friends about this and the ones that are really antagonised by Brand/Ross phone call haven't even listened to the broadcast, which goes to show how easily led people are. I heard it was bad so it must have been bad. 
BTW Andrew Sachs, institution that be is, rose to fame by portraying a racial stereotype. But that's funny. Right?
