I await with interest to see which way Harding swings [in the new year] when he leaves the BBC as he sets out to ‘report’ news slanted to suit his own world view….which apparently he couldn’t do at the BBC…so presumably he is a rabid right-winger as lefties have no problem pushing their own agendas on the BBC…..
The BBC‘s director of news and current affairs James Harding is to stand down from the role after five years to start a new media firm.
The former Times editor – appointed in April 2013 – will leave the corporation in the new year to set up his own media venture with a ‘distinct approach to the news’.
Harding, 48, called working at the broadcaster ‘rewarding and worthwhile’ and said his new company would focus on journalism that the BBC ‘for all its brilliance, can’t, and probably shouldn’t, do’.
He added: ‘And that’s what I want to explore: I am going to start a new media company with a distinct approach to the news and a clear point of view.
