Three days on from the BBC Question Time ‘Special’, it has become increasingly clear that there was a lack of journalistic rigour and integrity with the whole programme.
Jonathan Smith says:
“We have learnt that the audience was not evenly balanced, that there is a suspicion that at least one audience member and questioner was actually a ‘plant’, and that some of the footage – apparently showing the audience’s dismissal of Boris Johnson’s claim that he could be trusted – was left out of the final edit. We cannot stand by and put up with such partial reporting and presentation by our leading television news channel. The BBC needs to be required to explain itself.”
