Lord Hall, director general of the BBC, has declined to retract an erroneous statement about Andrew Neil & his "mad cat woman" tweet. In long & boring detail, I sent the BBC evidence about why it matters. Cue, total silence. So here it is, for the record..
...in a nutshell, this wasn't a one-off. Andrew Neil attacked the Cambridge Analytica "conspiracy" over months. He denigrated @chrisinsilico's evidence. He retweeted Guido's attacks. All in breach of the BBC's code on impartiality...
With impeccable timing, here's Tony Hall writing in today's @ft about the perils of fake news & disinformation. It's why it's so important for news organisations to acknowledge & correct mistakes, Lord Hall. Baffling that you can't lead by example
