The BBC on basic moral values

The following is an extract from a BBC internal document from 1972 called Principles and Practice in News and Current Affairs.


The BBC cannot be neutral in the struggle between truth and untruth, justice and injustice, freedom and slavery, compassion and cruelty, tolerance and intolerance.  It is not only within the Constitution: it is within the consensus about basic moral values.


Evidently this is no longer BBC policy.

  1. Hmmm…who wrote this I wonder? Obviously someone who highly disapproves of the BBC…
    Someone who finds their reporting to attack the interests of his/her people…
    Where would you suggest we get better news? Here? Ha!
