BBC -- Striving for Journalistic Integrity?

Mediacrity , discussing coverage of BBC's labor problems, points out the news agency's propensity for "self-serving platitudes."

Brendan Barber, TUC general secretary, said of the [job] action: "It matters because broadcasting excellence, programme quality and journalistic integrity - all of the values the BBC strives for - are at risk if these cuts go ahead as proposed."

BBC has long claimed to “set the standard for accurate and impartial journalism.?

One does not have to be a media buff to realize this claim is far from the truth.
