I have asked on 5 occasions for simple FOI information that the BBC must have. It is nothing to do with journalism, it is to do with fairness and their charter
Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
I have asked you on many occasions for simple information on bias. It states in your charter that you must be fair and impartial and the whole country (even you Director General told you to ignore bias. Even this week, The panel on question time was so skewed to remaining in the EU it beggared belief.
You are an official government organization and must disclose under the Freedom of Information Act and you are breaking the law when you refuse to do so. The last reply to me was sorry we are unable to do this please complain to Ofcom - did you get a liberal elitist oxbridge gap year student to right that reply.
I was the data controller for a large company that held MoD data and personal information. It was quite clear to me what I had to release and what I did not. You will breaking the law if you do not reply and I believe you are deliberately not disclosing
So what I require under the FOI Act is:
1. The senior person that refused my request on each occasion - just the title of the person will do or that could be a breach of their privacy - I have kept all replies so please let me know the answer for each one.
2. A proper breakdown of the anti brexit and remain bias accusations for the last four years? I have requested it before on many occasions and this is information you must have analysed or how could you possibly be complying with your charter.
Please release the information to me in accordance with the law of this country in the correct timescale? It is your duty to do so.
