BBC doesn’t need to be BALANCED says Nick Robinson over PUBLICLY-FUNDED Beeb


“Why? Because there are no longer dual sides, dual campaigns, dual opposition sets of spokespeople reading out those focus-grouped slogans.

“The BBC’s pursuit is not to demeanour over a shoulder wondering either a report, talk or contention will incite letters of censure or a waves of tweets from Remainers or Leavers – who, like fighters who emerge after months of stealing in a bush, seem not to accept that a fight is over.

“Our job, instead, is to keep a eyes resolutely bound on a assembly as a whole… people who would not dream of defining themselves by how they voted in a referendum.”
