BBC cries ‘hush!’

Dozens of well-known BBC presenters publicly backed Gracie, only to fall foul of the corporation’s editorial guidelines. The BBC has pointed out that where a presenter or reporter has publicly expressed a view on a particular issue, they would no longer be perceived as an impartial voice, therefore it is right they do not conduct interviews on that issue.

All well and good - I can see where they're coming from - but it does feel that on this issue the BBC keeps putting its foot in its mouth. Muzzling people who speak out could give rise to further claims, but this time for victimisation.
