As Charlie pointed out on the open thread, the woman who presents a BBC show about how BBC News conducts itself, Samira Ahmed, was lending support to Carole Cadwalladr at her libel trial yesterday (she's been sued by Arron Banks), adding:
I view this as overt political support but the BBC will view it as just one journalist helping another.
In response to Samira's decision, GB News's Liam Deacon took to Twitter to say:
Just BBC anchor Samira Ahmed out campaigning with ultra hardline anti-Brexit activist Carole Cadwalladr. I have no problem at all with journalists having politics and opinions. But remember this next time they say GB News is somehow too ideological.
