Alan at Biased BBC links to more tweets from the BBC's Palestinian-obsessed Australia correspondent, Jon Donnison. After Alan went to press, Jon D posted yet another impartiality-busting tweet:
Realised 7 years ago I was covering @tonyblairoffice new gig as ME peace envoy? Has anyone else kept a job after 7 years of total failure?— Jon Donnison (@JonDonnison) August 18, 2014
Now, he may very well be right, but should he really be saying that as a BBC reporter (especially one who uses Twitter as a key part of his BBC reporting and not in a personal capacity)?
Helen Boaden got demoted, albeit with an increased salary. Does that count? To be fair, at the BBC they generally get promoted for it. So, technically, they don't keep their same job. Justin Webb, Mark Mardell, Richard Bacon, Mark Thompson....the list goes on and on.ReplyDelete
