BBC Complaints: The link you need!

Tuesday, 27 April 2010


The lead election story on the BBC News website tonight is 'Election: Parties battle over family and crime plans'. This has three sub-headings:
*****************Cuts questions
*****************'Toddler tax'
The latter pair are direct quotes from Labour attacks on the Conservatives. 'Claptrap' immediately preceeds excerpts from a speech by David Cameron on the 'broken society'. It is a quote from Alan Johnson featured four paragraphs later, after the Cameron extracts (thus book-ending them)!
Labour and Lib Dem spokesman "attack", "tell", "argue" and "say". Only the Conservatives have to "defend" themselves:
In south London, Mr Cameron defended his depiction of British society as "broken".
A typical BBC article.
