Ofcom launches further investigations into RT

Ofcom has today opened a further 12 investigations into the due impartiality of programmes on the RT news channel. This takes the total number of RT programmes under investigation to 27.

We are very concerned by the volume of programmes on RT that are raising potential issues under the Broadcasting Code, and as we progress our investigations we are considering whether RT should retain a UK licence.
