I was reading some criticism of the BBC's reporting of Lord Frost's resignation from the government and checked out how BBC One's late evening bulletin reported the Mail on Sunday's scoop. In their main headlines, the BBC said:
The BBC understands the Brexit minister Lord Frost has resigned from the Cabinet. It's believed Lord Frost, who's led negotiations with the EU, stood down over the political direction of Boris Johnson's Government.
The BBC ''understood'' it through reading it in the Mail on Sunday.
They are quite shameless.
Also, via BBC reporter Damian Grammaticas, we got the return of an old favourite - the BBC's favoured use of ''hardline'' to describe Brexit supporters in the Conservative Party:
He helped Mr Johnson win the backing of hardline Brexit supporters in his party, advocating a tough approach to Brussels.
Says hardline BBC reporter Damian Grammaticas.
