Woman's Hour team are given impartiality training after 'showing bias against US Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh when he was accused of sex assault'


That's a headline from The Daily Mail. And this is the BBC ruling it refers to:


The presenter in question was Jane Garvey, who - during the programme - made comments like this:
What is horrifying – well, I suppose if you are a feminist it's horrifying – is the way that Kavanaugh's indignation, his outrage, his frankly peculiar almost hysterical demeanour... has been interpreted by some as entirely right. Exactly how a man would react in those circumstances.

  1. Someone's got it in for Jane Garvey at the BBC! They normally circle the wagons and take potshots at the savages (ie us) trying to get a complaint taken seriously.

    I wondered whether she had fallen foul of the trans crowd...sixty seconds of research shows I might be right:
