BBC condemned for handling of Naga Munchetty inquiry

The BBC’s handling of the investigation into Naga Munchetty has led to calls for greater scrutiny of the corporation’s complaints procedure, with some journalists complaining that the policy is designed and enforced by older, white men – who often have to rule on complaints filed by older, white male audiences.

Nonsense, have a look at the BBC Trust board. You'll find there's diversity there. Easier to blame 'white men's nowadays. Fair game, aren't they.

this is an utter non-story.The BBC is almost a bigger peddler of pc crap than the Guardian.They only disciplined her because they are coming under increasing flak for bias and social engineering.They caved in when the luvvies had a mental breakdown.Utterly pathetic

For the wrinkled and senile old men the end is near. Shortly they will bite the dust. And Naga, the Venus, will be victorious. Wrinkled and senile old men belong to the past. She is the future. God bless her and women. Thank you 🙏

Wow, sexist pig here - stunningly beautiful woman - even luckier not worth man.

Blaming everything on old white men is going to look pretty fucking dumb when they are no longer in power and the same shit mysteriously keeps happening

Naga Munchetty reprimand blurs BBC’s own lines between reportage and opinion | Kenan MalikThe BBC Breakfast presenter had every right to express her anger at Donald Trump’s racist comment This is not a story she was rightly disciplined end of Now I understand the line between saying a tweet is racist vs saying someone is racist but as the column points out she did *not* call him a racist and that reprimand is one of the stupidest thing I've heard in a while - and it's not like stupid things are in short supply rn The BBC were expressing their top end opinion by focusing on this and ensuring people understood what their reprimand would focus on. It’s not hard to see how careful they are to welcome very right wing opinion and they usually make sure they’re deferent

BBC admits only Naga Munchetty was reprimanded for Trump racism complaint which included Dan Walker‘It could be said that Dan Walker kind of led Naga Munchetty to the conclusion she eventually made,’ executive says Not strictly true. Only she was reprimanded because the racist that wrote in ignored Dan. Not that she said anything she shouldn't or that wasn't true. surprise surprise It was an awkward question she should have chosen not to answer. She was delving into personal experience and conflating it with something she has no personal knowledge of. They aren’t going to sack her so what’s all the fuss about anyway? It’s a childish debate.
