The Dean Blundell Show has been sanctioned numerous times by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) and The Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
Here is the information regarding these sanctions. They are truly appalling and no one should be subjected to such slander and ridicule from another person.
Dean Blundell was suspended in March 2004, with respect to a rather rowdy appearance by Steve-O of “Jackass.” It was not due to content but with Dean Blundell’s refusal to follow orders. When it became apparent things were getting out of hand, Cross called the studio and ordered Blundell to cut off the guests’ microphones and have security escort them out. Blundell continued with the show and that’s why he’s suspended. “Insubordination” is how Cross described it this morning. Alan Cross was Program Director of The Edge at the time. http://www.torontomike.com/2004/03/the_reason.html
Please read how Dean Blundell Violated the Code of Ethics in September 2004. The show was entitled “Spencer the Cripple” the radio station violated a specific code of ethics. Link of code of ethics here: http://www.cbsc.ca/english/codes/cabethics.php#Clause9. Link to what happened on that show http://www.torontomike.com/2009/09/dbs_spencer_the_cripple_segmen.html
In October, 2010 Blundell again violated Clause 8 of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Equitable Portrayal Code which prohibits the sexualization of children in broadcasting. Link of code of ethics here: http://www.cbsc.ca/english/codes/cabethics.php#Clause8 Blundell started by making tweets about Justin Bieber. Bieber fans objected, and Blundell let them have it with tweets like “Save your energy for puberty or to fend off your dad tonight while you’re sleepin’” and “He’ll be chuggin’ before he’s 18 if he likes that music.” What got him trouble was not the tweets but, talking about them on the air. (His behavior then was very similar to his conduct concerning the lady of our MJ Community who wrote the e-mails to him which he then read on the air.) http://www.torontomike.com/2010/10/dean_blundell_sexualized_child.html
This defamation and slander must STOP!
In my next post I will be discussing Blundell’s defamation of Michael Jackson and his children.
