|James Harding's expression whilst writing his Garudian piece|
The BBC's Director of News, James Harding, has written an article defending the BBC's Brexit coverage against all comers - in, of all places, the Guardian.
(Cries of "You couldn't make it up!" resound in the air.)
The Graun's headline is: A truly balanced view from the BBC: don’t blame us for Brexit.
"It is easy to dismiss these critics as regular BBC bashers or sore losers. But the BBC has no business being complacent", says Mr Harding, whilst penning an article which defends everything the BBC has done regarding its Brexit coverage.
(More cries of "You couldn't make it up!" resound in the air.)
Now, for 'balance' (BBC-style 'balance'!), Mr Harding does concede, in his final paragraph, "We plainly do not get everything right. We make mistakes and, I hope, move quickly to grip them".
He doesn't, however, it should be swiftly noted, cite even a single example of any such mistake!
(The cries of "You couldn't make it up!" become deafening).
