Nick Triggle versus the BBC charter

From Section 10 of the BBC's guidelines...


We must treat matters of politics and public policy with due accuracy and impartiality in news and other output.


We must not express an opinion on current affairs or matters of public policy other than broadcasting or the provision of online services.


We must not campaign, or allow ourselves to be used to campaign.

Now go read Nick Triggle's article about plain packaging and see how it measures up.

You can read more about this partisan hack here, here and here.

ITV can be almost as bad. See Chris Ship's Twitter.

Triggle is blatant. Walsh is little better. Both are good reasons for ending the pretense of impartial public broadcasting and scrapping the license fee immediately.
