BBC impartiality

News of the BBC's 'impartiality summit' is winging its way around the world, courtesy of the world wide web and internet blogs such as this one. But what does the BBC say have to say about the summit? Nothing.

As if to prove that the Corporation can't be trusted as an impartial news source, it has again completely ignored its own editorial guideline (quoted in my 9 October blog entry) by failing to report the leaked news.

The BBC never likes to report news which brings its integrity into question. That's why it buried Stonewall's report about anti-gay discrimination (blog on 1 March 2006), why it misreported the Rio Ferdinand incident on Radio 1 (blog on 9 October 2006), and why it has ignored the latest news about its 'impartiality summit.'


Torchwood - separate from the Government, outside police jurisdiction and beyond the United Nations - sounds spookily like the BBC.
