Beyond reporting

BBC reporters appear to be crossing the line between reporting and advocating policy policies with ever more frequency at the moment. 

Not content with painting a dismal scene of conditions at a migrant site in Hungary on this morning's Today programme, the BBC's Anna Holligan ended with a clear personal opinion:
At the moment the Hungarian government's response seems to be to increase the law and order as opposed to the humanitarian aid - which, just looking around this site, is just what these people need right now.
