Today editor Sarah Sands sounded off on this week's Feedback over the question of the Government's decision to boycott the Today programme in protest against BBC bias:
Well, what's happened is that you can see the Government won a big majority, it sees Labour in disarray and it thinks it's a pretty good time to put the foot on the windpipe of an independent broadcaster.
So the strategy, as we know, is quite Trumpian - to delegitimise the BBC.
So, at the moment that's the policy. I don't think it will last because it's shortsighted and its' pretty discourteous, I think, to our 7 million politically engaged and intelligent listeners.
