In fairness to Evan Davis, at least he did put one striking question to James Purnell during that Newnsight debate with Stephen Glover:
Well, let's take an example of this, James Purnell. Should the BBC have a weather app? There are lots of weather apps out there, right? The BBC has a very good weather app. It's been advertised quite heavily on BBC television. No other weather app has that privilege of being advertised on a mainstream channel. Is that right? I mean, the Mail might want to have a weather app.
The BBC is full of adverts. Whether its TV or radio, programmes are almost always separated by adverts (sometimes several). It's just that all the adverts are for the BBC itself.
Should it have a weather app though?
