Initially we heard nothing and Sonia blocked the HGH twitter account. I used my twitter account to send further questions and facts of the case and i called her mobile number and asked her for an interview. She was very upset and said she found my approach “hostile and aggressive” and that all she wanted was people to be interviewed and slammed the phone down – a fact that she is blissfully unaware off.


Without both sides story its hard to tell what actually transpired. 
But from the above exchange she might have a point, as it appears (to me anyway) she felt she was stalked hence her saying she felt the hostile approach.

I am disappointed there is a lack of objectivity that people were quick to escalate it to the Complaint Body over something/someone they prejudiced over and above rather than anything else.
A channel that otherwise given time and chance to work out its teething problems with help of constructive feedback from public and given chance to incorporate feedback might just be a platform for alternative voice. It’s a real shame.

Just my voice….not saying, just saying…….!

ETA: My hunch tells me the complaint to Ofcom came from member here. I stand correctly if I am wrong, but like I say it’s a hunch.

I am at a loss as to why members of this forum would want to shut down a new news channel, especially one that is willing to give us a platform to put forward our side of this case. 

 

What exactly do those members want from TPV? We here on this forum are a separate entity, that is, we really don’t have any right to dictate what TPV broadcasts, nor do we have the right to pick and choose who they interview, we can put forward our opinions and complaints, but we cannot select their guests and demand that they stick to a one party line. 

 

Although I am happy to be a member of this forum, I want no part whatsoever in preventing news (all news) from being transmitted from a small news station brave enough to stand up to the mainstream media.

3. At no point did Sonia say we could have a right of reply until we asked for it – again on twitter to which she agreed. 

 

4. Then we received an email from her stating that “some sore loser” reported the Hollie Greig coverage to Ofcom so blah blah balh see it here for yourselves here

 

5. The we sent a couple of emails and a number of pertinent questions and facts via twitter to Sonia, including a request to interview her so she could keep her word and give us a right of reply. 

 

Strange, perhaps I have to backtrack a second time.  Pyrite says here that Sonia *did* agree to right to reply, before the Ofcom stuff kicked off.  So it would seem that rather than refusing to interview the hoax team, she agreed to interview the hoax team, and then someone reported them to Ofcom, which is of course going to screw things up.

 

I have no idea whether Sonia was genuine about the right to reply, all I have to go on is this.

 

As for people who might report TPV to Ofcom, I would suggest that if it was anybody from this forum, it might be someone who appears to treat this as some kind of personal crusade.  I have no idea who this might be, nor am I saying that someone from this forum has reported TPV to Ofcom.
