More on BBC response to Stonewall

A spokesperson for the BBC is reported to have defended the BBC against Stonewall's "Tuned Out" report by saying that the data was collected within a limited timeslot - between 7pm and 10pm on BBC1 and BBC2 - thus excluding "nearly all of the BBC's news and current affairs output."

Newsround is a news and current affairs programme and it's broadcast outside the timeslot investigated by Stonewall. But things are no better at that time either. In fact Newsround is an lgbt-free zone.
