Balance of News @10 and News@6 reports from majority Leave vs majority Remain-voting constituencies.
Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
I would firstly like to thank you for the opportunity to request information from your organisation. I believe this process is incredibly important at upholding transparency within our democracy.
My request surrounds Brexit-related news reports filmed for and shown on BBC News @ 6 and BBC News @ 10 since June 2016. I would like to know what proportion of news reports have been hosted in Leave-voting constituencies and the equivalent statistics for Remain-voting constituencies. Alternatively, I would settle for a list of places in the UK which have hosted Brexit-related news articles for BBC News @ 6 and BBC News @ 10 since June 2016.
Yours faithfully, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
