Brockman has a long and distinguished career in current affairs programming, and has hosted Smartline, Bite Back! With Kent Brockman, and Eye on Springfield, as well as the game show Springfield Squares.
Brockman has, however, been known to have a penchant for offensive language, letting rip once on air with what Ned Flanders called a "super swear" that shocked everyone who watched. Let's hope the frustrations of EC bureaucracy don't bring this to the fore.
Any similarity between the French Mathematician Jean-Pierre Bourguignon is purely coincidental.
