Ofcom has today published its assessment of BBC Breakfast on BBC One on 17 July 2019:
Kevin Bakhurst, Ofcom’s Group Director for Content and Media Policy, said: “Due impartiality rules are vital for maintaining high levels of trust in broadcast news. We took into account the format of the BBC Breakfast programme and the nature of the presenters’ exchange. Our assessment is that it would not breach our broadcasting rules and does not warrant investigation.
“More widely, we have serious concerns around the transparency of the BBC’s complaints process, which must command the confidence of the public. We’ll be requiring the BBC to be more transparent about its processes and compliance findings as a matter of urgency.”
