Quick question

If you were the producer of a popular reality television programme that had run into a little bit of difficulty over racist comments by one of your contributors, would you:

a) Stand by your decision to select said candidate saying that his or her opinions are representative of a section of society.

b) Scrap the series so as not to cause any more offence to the viewing public.

c) Stage and shoot new sequences with a black crew member posing as a candidate, then edit them into your remaining programmes in order to make it look like said contestant learns from the experience and changes their mind.

I know what I would do, but then again I'm not a TV big-nob so what do I know?
