Followers of the BBC Press Office Twitter account may have been surprised to see on December 3rd that the corporation has apparently opened its own media monitoring department.
The BBC’s critique of two recent Sun editorials can be found here.
Clearly the BBC is not happy when it considers that other members of the media get it wrong and thinks it important to establish “the facts”. Recent days have also seen BBC criticism of an additional media outlet for alleged “lazy journalism”.
Would that the corporation were similarly conscientious about accuracy and facts in some of its own content.
