Claim: BBC suppressed criticism at Gaza appeal meet


NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear has an his blog account of the BBC director general’s meeting with staff at which the decision not to air the DEC Gaza appeal was discussed.

Dear’s source is less than flattering about the way BBC director general Mark Thompson and his deputy Mark Byford handled the event.

The source says: “This was probably the most cynical piece of news management I think I’ve experienced at the BBC…..Thompson and Byford and their minders used every trick in the book to suppress genuine criticism and deeply felt anger directed towards them from BBC staff..”
