More Beeb follies
: Now the BBC is getting attacks from within. The Telepgrah reports that the Beeb’s own flagship show Panorma is going after the Beeb’s behavior in the Gilligan/Kelly/sexed-up-dossier/Hutton affair:
The programme has caused intense divisions within the BBC as it will be hard-hitting in its scrutiny of some of its own journalists and will also clear the Government of dishonesty in its handling of intelligence material….
The programme, A Fight to the Death, is expected to be particularly critical of Andrew Gilligan, the BBC’s Today programme journalist who reported alleged concern in the intelligence services about the Government’s first dossier about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. It also criticises the corporation for standing by Gilligan before conducting an adequate investigation to establish the facts.
