Even after new impartiality guidelines being implemented by the BBC over its staff and presenters sharing political posts. Emily Maitlis seems to be allowed to break the rules at the expense of the taxpayer continually.
In a recent bust-up on Twitter, Emily Maitlis retweeted a post from Piers Morgan saying: “If failing to quarantine properly is punishable by 10yrs in prison, what is the punishment for failing to properly protect the country from a pandemic?”
Instead of staying impartial as the BBC guidelines state, Emily decides she’s the exception and retweets political posts which expose her bias.
This action by Emily provoked a response from the Defund the BBC campaign group on Twitter who said: “Emily Maitlis is incapable of maintaining impartiality and yet she goes unpunished time and time again.
“You don’t have to pay for this. Switch to on-demand and do your bit to #DefundTheBBC by legally cancelling your TV licence.”
The big question remains, why should the taxpayer be forced to pay for those who spout and push their political bias when the BBC is said to be impartial.
Ludicrous. https://t.co/Ub1prTUyQY— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 15, 2021
