BBC Is Done With Fake Murderer Ray Gosling

Ray Gosling, the BBC commentator who admitted to lying about suffocating AIDS-stricken ex-lover Tony Judson, is out of a job: The BBC is cutting all ties with Gosling, who accepted a 90-day jail term in a plea deal. They could’ve at least secured the first exclusive interview withhim.

    Admitted to lying?
    Ray Gosling originally told the court; “In my heart and in my head I plead not guilty.”
    He later changed his plea to guilty.
    Well, sort of.
    “Digby Johnson, my solicitor, tells me technically I am guilty…”

    If the BBC are really saying they won’t work with him again, it doesn’t surprise me – but as it’s a victory for The Maily Mail et al it also depresses me.

    Oops. That should be DAILY Mail, of course.

    And Jon Ronson already got the “first exclusive” interview with sister Ray in The Guardian October 2nd…

    @Fagburn: You seem not to be understanding that he is pleading guilty to having made up the story about killing his lover to end his suffering, not that he was guilty of that act. ‘Sister Ray’? That’s unfortunate.

    @Steve: Yes, I know what the charge was – sorry if I hadn’t made this clear.
    My point was he originally pleaded NOT guilty to this.
    And I mean “sister” as a compliment…
