This needs remarking on, even just for the sound byte we’ve all thought but rarely heard spoken by a public figure:
“Getting the BBC to admit it is wrong is like squeezing blood from a stone.” – Ben Bradshaw, former Beeb journalist and [current UK Government] Fisheries Minister.
I wonder whether the Government will let the BBC off the hook when the Charter renewal discussions begin? Maybe they are just enjoying making the Beeb squirm for a change, or Greg Dyke (Boss Hogg to his friends) do some work.
Many thanks to Nigel Holland who brought this to light in the thread below.
