Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The BBC Charter requires that it provides impartial news and broadcasting. News and broadcasting is journalism and is out of scope of FOI, but impartiality is the requirement under the Charter that does fall into the scope of FOI.

How many complaints of bias did the BBC receive in 2016 and how many were upheld?

Complaints and dispute resolution are not journalism

Yours faithfully,

Mr Carr

Does anyone have any tips here? It seems the BBC can operate with impunity and I do not agree that the complaint procedure and outcomes are part of journalism
