The BBC arrives at self-parody

Continuing on from an earlier post...

If the BBC wishes to take issue with and disprove Ben Harris-Quinney's claim that the BBC has a preference for guests that are "embodiments of the liberal metropolitan establishment" and that the corporation constantly draws on a limited pool of comment ("the same people with the same views over and over again"), they shouldn't refer him to this morning's Broadcasting House or they'd end up with egg on their faces.

The press panel today was firmly in 'you couldn't make it up' territory. Ben can use it as Exhibit A from now on.

The three guests were Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Stephen K Amos and Salma Shah, and - among other things - they discussed the BBC, the government and the BBC licence fee. 

As was openly admitted, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson sat on the board of the BBC for many years, Stephen K Amos has worked for the BBC, and Salma Shah used to work for the BBC.

What are the chances of that happening!

It's as bad as the Ofcom board.
