Corrections and Clarifications

The Today website surpassed itself this morning with its description of Lord Dannatt:

Lord Dannatt is actually a crossbench peer rather than a Conservative peer and he's a former Chief of the General Staff rather than a former 'General Chief of Staff'. 

Still at least they got his name right!

On the programme itself John Humphrys got Lord Dannatt's former military title right but, alas, also introduced him incorrectly as "a Conservative peer".

  1. Nice catch. I can't find it at the moment, but I'm sure I've seen previous from the BBC on making sure to frame Dannatt as being pro-Conservative on the issue of the moment.
