“When people feel deeply, impartiality is bias.”
In one of the most clear-cut cases of ‘biting the hand that feeds you’, Donald Trump lashed out at Twitter last week with one of his ‘Executive Orders’ (‘President’s fury at fact-checking links are latest volley in battle over ‘bias’ – Telegraph Business, 29/5/20): it’s amazing how the tools of State can be used to pursue personal vendettas.
But it’s also amazing how so much of the world’s news is now provided by social media channels, alongside the demise of traditional, objective news-casting. When Lord Reith laid the foundations for the BBC, it was to ‘inform, educate and entertain’: that three-legged stool now seems to place a disproportional emphasis on the latter.
So please READ ON .. as this week we look at what’s going wrong with broadcast news and why it’s so difficult to finance it commercially.
