A survey of British TV industry workers has found significant bullying by executives, with nearly 40 percent of the workers claiming that they have been victims. According to a report in the London Independent, the victims told interviewers that the problem has grown worse over the past decade. Only 4 percent of the 500 broadcasting workers surveyed by market researchers GFK said that they had been targeted by talent, while the rest cited the behavior of management. Lisa Campbell, editor of Britain's Broadcast magazine, said that such victims of bullying rarely seek legal remedies, "because the worst thing you can be branded in TV is a trouble maker."
