12 July (Part 2) - Lying on TV. Next stop OFCOM

Colin CampbellAfter councillor Colin Councillor comprehensively lied on TV last Sunday I contacted a friend who just happens to be involved with compliance issues at the BBC. He replied as follows…

I’ve watched Colin Campbell on Sunday Politics. You are right be be angry (assuming you didn’t start a brawl, use the F word or mooning at councillors). It made whoever was trying to film in Bexley sound like a yob. You have a justifiable complaint.

So I contacted the producer of Sunday Politics and this is what he said…

I have looked at the broadcast again in light of your concerns and discussed them with senior colleagues. We are happy that all relevant BBC guidelines were followed.

So it’s OFCOM here we come.
