Objectivity in short supply?

Oh dear, the BBC seems to have shot itself in the foot again over Ed Stourton's less than impartial interview about the Ordinariate with Prof. Tina Beattie on the execrable Sunday programme (7.10 a.m. on Sunday mornings - thank God for early masses) - see here, here and here.
Just why the Corporation has to be seen as a player in these debates, instead of performing its legitimate (and tax-payer funded) task of balanced reporting, goodness only knows. But in an increasingly competitive media world it is doing itself no favours by posing as the broadcast edition of The Guardian (or the Tablet or whatever fashionably left-leaning periodical springs to mind.)


  1. The BBC has shot itself in the foor so often that it hasn't got a leg to stand on.

  2. But Mr Stourton has such a nice dog.
