Could someone explain why Rich Johnston now thinks it's not true:
You started the feckin rumour avalanche in the first place, Rich!!
But theyíre wrong. BBC News is not the BBC. Oh sure, itís part of it, but when it reports a news story about the BBC, it is not the PR wing of the broadcaster. Itís often critical, occasionally misinformed and generally the same as all the other media.
In this piece, though not naming the sources, it is simply repeating the stories broken by the Radio Times and The Mirror earlier in the week.
Of course BBC News wouldn't be The BBC's promo outlet, but, they are a legitimate News Source, aren't they? So, therefore they have to print the truth that they fact checked, and not reproduce rumors from Gossip Rags and sell them as news, right? Didn't the BBC News article state they were told by BBC about the Press Conference
