Changes at Newsround, and the BBC attack on diversity

There have been a few changes at Newsround, but whether for the better or for the worse remains to be seen.

More generally, as regular readers already know, the BBC is far from being comfortable with the principles of equality and diversity, and now it seems Channel 4 is assisting in a regrettable attempt to be exempted from some duties in the new Equality Bill.

According to the Guardian, the broadcasters are suggesting that their editorial independence would be compromised. Newsround Blog has been investigating, and will keep you informed.
