Well Done the BBC!
The BBC has cancelled its planned PLANET AID Day following last week's denunciation of it by the Head of News Peter Horrocks and Newsnight editor Peter Barron. They made clear that it was not the BBC's job to take a partial stance on it. Needless to say, enviornmental groups are less than pleased, which rather rpoves the point Horrocks and Barron were making. The BBC has made the right decision, but to pretend, as they are doing, that it has nothing to with what the two of them said last week is Pravda-esque. Damian Thompson AGREES.
