BBO/ Fans Outraged At Editing In Favour Of Rex
In nine years of covering Big Brother in the UK, we have
never felt the need to write an article totally condemning
Channel 4's editing of a particular highlights show... until
For we were outraged at the editing of last night's show
(Thursday the 7th of August 2008), which showed the events
from the previous day. We're particularly referring to the
late-night Rex/ Nicole spat, which in real life went on for
well over 30 minutes, but was condensed to just five for the
Confused fans have already written to us in bemusement, saying
that they stayed-up to watch the events on the live feed and
subsequently told friends/ family to watch the highlights
show in question, feeling that Rex had finally ruined his
game with his mega-oppressive and controlling behaviour.

to Rex and started the argument by laying near the divide

and we can easily see her quitting before the series ends,
but in this instance she didn't get a fair deal. To us, Channel
4 blatantly edited the show to steer the story line away from
any possible accusations of bullying on Rex's part.
Lastly, there's bias in everything you watch and read due
to editing, and we know that Channel 4 have to tell a story
to an extent. However, this time they've overstepped the mark
and duped a hell of a lot of viewers who can't/ don't want
to stay up until the early hours to watch the live feed.
