Would appreciate a link or two to get the gist, because I cannot believe what i'm hearing.
Context: discussion elsewhere re disappointing uneven reportage by the bbc (radio4) a govt heavyweight & "paid for" climate change denier ..the BBC are meant to be neutral but keep wheeling out the paid for mouthpiece who is plain wrong & has his statements frequently disproven..
So, an associate wrote this..
"I suppose it all comes down to balance, and depends on whether you are a news broadcaster or just entertainment.
In the US Fox News was challenged for presenting a biased opinion on AGW, as News channels must be balanced, but they won the legal argument by claiming that they aren't a News channel!
So is Radio 4 entertainment or News, or is it constrained by general BBC rules. I assume it's fairly lax, unless it can be shown to be deliberately misleading whilst using the BBC name to add credence to the claims of the individual."
Feel free to discuss anything non pumpkin related

Many of us in The USA would like to distance ourselves from Fox news... I always said during the Obama administration. I would have liked, just once, for Obama at an elementary school to have told a kid "Don't eat the yellow snow." Just so I could have heard Fox news tell us why yellow snow is good for you.
