|Fran, on reading John Simpson's Twitter feed?|
BBC Head of News Fran Unsworth could hardly have been clearer in her (leaked) email to BBC journalists earlier this year, that BBC journalists need to keep their personal views private and that this also fully applies to their time spent on social media as much as it does to their 'regular' reporting. She also explicitly warned against imperilling the BBC 'reputation for impartiality' through one-sided retweets as people can take them for 'endorsements'...
...just as I take this retweet from the BBC's John Simpson as an 'endorsement' of what Bonnie Greer says here about immigration:
Will Mr. Simpson be getting a verbal warning from Ms. Unsworth?
