That tweet from LEAVE.EU yesterday saying "10 of the 13 members of the 'impartial' Ofcom board charged with regulating the BBC have strong ties to the BBC" derives from a characteristically fine piece of digging from News-watch's David Keighley.
David has posted the details of his research at The Conservative Woman today and it makes for fascinating reading. Please take a look for yourselves.
David writes that:
The Content Board has ‘BBC’ etched through it like a stick of Blackpool rock. Looking at the various affiliations of the members – for example Andrew Chitty’s membership of David Puttnam’s group or Zahera Harb’s board seat on the so-called the Ethical Journalism Network (which advocates that the Syrian war was caused in part by climate change) – it is not hard to see that they are likely to share the same biased mindset as their former BBC colleagues.
