Dear FOI Enquiries,

You response states:
"The BBC's reputation, in the UK and around the world, is based on its editorial integrity and independence."

In my experience the BBC's reputation is for being the governments poodle and propaganda machine, your response has as much credibility as your "news coverage", was it dictated by the government?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Taylor
