  • Daily Mail attacks BBC over Radio 1′s BNPgate

    The Mail on Sunday lays into the BBC today for its recent soft interview with two BNP activists. Obviously the Daily Mail has an agenda to undermine the BBC but I’m not supporting the latter. Even for the Mail, it is spot on. via Lancaster Unity. Most tellingly, the BNP spokesperson says:

    We were surprised not to have faced more difficult questioning but Radio 1 is not a heavy-duty political organ like Radio 4. It is an informative thing for young people. It is not too serious.

    Not too serious is exactly how I’d describe their journalism.

    Update: Peter Hain writes an article criticising the Beeb over the interview too. The Guardian has also finally picked up the ball.
