As you know i have written recently about the scandal engulfing the BBC, i am shocked and disgusted by the lack of outrage. I bring you this clip from Question Time last night and i urge you to listen to the whole clip and to listen to what Janet Street Porter says
The first small point i want to make is that i was stunned that the question was allowed in the first place, so that is to the BBC credit, but that is as far as it goes.
Janet Street Porter says at 4 mins 10 secs that the BBC did know about what was going on and that it was not just rumors, that to me is a very serious charge and one i believe to made with knowledge and honesty.
The BBC and those that have assisted in this cover up have failed young people, ruined lives and have now totally lost any credibility to be a trusted news reporter or even a public service broadcaster.
But what about our politicians ? yesterday i posted that Tom Watson had not made any comment on the BBC but did comment on the Andrew Mitchell affair, Today Tim Farron did comment on whether a broadcaster was "fit and proper" but it wasnt about the BBC
In a free market you make your choice by choosing to purchase one product or another, you can also protest by cancelling subscriptions to stuff that disgust you, well not in this case. I personally do not want to pay another penny to a public service broadcaster that has covered up child sex abuse, but what happens if i stop payment to BBC ? the BBC will take me to court, do you know how sick this makes me feel, if i want to avoid a court date i have to pay money to a corporation that covered up child sex abuse!
Which also brings me onto another BBC story that has appeared today
The BBC has lost all credibility and moral authority after these latest revelations, If phone hacking closed down the NOTW then covering up child sex abuse should close down the BBC or at the very least it should be made voluntary subscription so people can choose whether to pay money to a corporation the covered up child sex abuse!
I lay this challenge to the BBC, if you think Janet Street Porter is lying then sue her!
