Remember when the Daily Mail got all angry about Channel 4's Big Fat Quiz of the Year? They hated the jokes, they hated the comedians and they hated Channel 4 for broadcasting it. And what seemed to infuriate them more than anything was the refusal of Channel 4 bosses to come out and publicly explain themselves.
The Mail reported at the time:
"Only one board member... responded to ...requests for a comment, saying only that it was not up to the board to make 'creative' decisions. The C4 press office said its board members would not be making any comment. It repeated a request for us not to contact its chairman Lord Burns and said its chief executive David Abraham was still on holiday..."
This really riled the Daily Mail. So much so they launched a name and shame campaign against Channel 4's board, including publishing their photos and salaries:

The Daily Mail has been in a bit of trouble itself this week over its attempts to slander Ed Miliband's late father.
So far the Mail's sketch writer, deputy editor and city editor have stepped forward to face the onslaught of criticism, yet the man who is ultimately in charge is nowhere to be seen. Paul Dacre, editor of the Daily Mail has been missing in action since the story kicked off.
