Should I have been given a right of reply? Should the B.B.C have kept the interview on line. Have they breached their own guidelines?
I can't say what their own guidelines are but if something is said that is untrue, you generally would have a right to reply - just like in a newspaper.
Does that help?
should the B.B.C. have kept the interview on line in view of the fact that the interviewer said "that is a very serious allegation and Anne had no part in it ,the other person mentioned did 18 yrs in prison." He then said "I am going to give you the last word but I don't want you to repeat the allegation" My view is that the interviewer acknowledged the serious nature of the allegation and the B.B.C. should not have kept the interview on line .
You would have thought that they should have exercised some journalist discretion and removed that part.
