BBC launches editors' blog

The BBC today launched a weblog written by editors from across BBC News outlets on television, radio and online.

The blog aims to make the corporation's editorial decision-making process more transparent.

In an introductory post, BBC head of news Helen Boaden wrote: "We are committed to being impartial, fair and accurate – these are the qualities which BBC News is rightly expected to uphold. But we also want to be open and accountable, and while this is nothing new (my colleagues and I are quite used to appearing on Newswatch on News 24 and Feedback on Radio 4), we are hoping this blog will be a fresh way of having a direct conversation with you, our audiences.

The project, which was announced by head of BBC News Interactive Pete Clifton at a conference in January, has been running on the corporation's internal network for several months.
