The process of 'burying' the John Whittingdale story, as discussed yesterday, appears to be gathering pace. As Alan at Biased BBC notes:
Curious…the Whittingdale story, headline news yesterday, has vanished completely from the BBC website’s frontpage, UK page and politics page.
He asks a question on the back of this:
Have they retreated after having overplayed their hand, leaving people to think that maybe the Newsnight hit was politically motivated?
That's a good question. It certainly does look like that, doesn't it?
