Just bumping this 'scoop' from this morning back up the blog, as it poses very serious questions for the BBC...
A LABOUR frontbencher has admitted broadcasting biased news reports while working as a BBC journalist.
And last night the revelation by shadow treasury minister Clive Lewis plunged the corporation into a damaging storm.
Mr Lewis told left-wing Momentum members: “I was able to use bias in my reports by giving less time to one than the other.
“I reported on both but the angle and words and the language I used — I know the pictures I used — I was able to project my own particular political positions on things in a very subtle way.”
Mr Lewis made his damning comments last September at a Momentum rally in Brighton.They were discovered in a secret recording and will be a huge embarrassment to BBC bosses.
Tory MP Damian Collins said: “He’s boasting about undermining one of our great institutions.”
A spokesman for Mr Lewis declined to comment.
And the BBC's response?:
A BBC spokesperson said: “Our editorial guidelines ensure impartiality.”
