Administrators Andrew Reid Posted March 11 Administrators Share Posted March 11 The idea of editorial independence was enshrined in the BBC’s founding Royal Charter in 1927, which stated the corporation should be “independent in all matters of internal control.” This was a way of ensuring the BBC’s coverage was not subject to political interference or pressure from any external sources such as the government. Now the editorial independence of the BBC is at best completely neutered by the Conservative Party. Many talented journalists have left. In many respects the best news organisation in the world has taken to sourcing stories purely from Twitter and social media. https://www.eoshd.com/news/controversy-at-the-bbc-and-impartialitys-true-meaning/ Emanuel, PannySVHS, hyalinejim and 4 others 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
