At the weekend I blogged BBC, aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!, about the BBC’s decision to cutaway to a voice-over from Nick Robinson during the middle of the reading out of the Labour leadership election results.
I’ve now had a reply:
Complaints on this issue were forwarded to senior figures within the BBC Newsroom and BBC’s political team and they agree that on this occasion it was inappropriate to continue with the commentary and analysis whilst results were being read out. We would like to apologise for the interruption during the announcement.
Well done the BBC for acknowledging the mistake. Fingers crossed for next time.
Now, how will Ed Miliband do in his new job?
