BBC Impartiality Review

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The BBC Trust is going to review the BBC’s impartiality following devolution.

Cardiff University School of Journalism is going to review the BBC’s coverage of local elections in England and the elections to the Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly and Northern Irish Assembly.  The report will be authored by Dr Anthony King, professor of government at Exeter University and the project director is Mike Robinson, a former BBC news and current affairs editor.

Dr King, a Canadian, once talked about a new English national identity evolving from sport on Radio 5 and writes for the Daily Torygraph.  Mike Robinson worked for the BBC for 25 years and resigned last year after falling out with the BBC1 controller over the scheduling of Panorama.

So, a Canadian professor, a BBC “lifer” and a Welsh university are going to review the impartiality of the BBC … right.
