BBC producer deletes blog where he admits political manipulation before PM Questions

Pride's Purge

A BBC producer has admitted in a BBC blog – now deleted – that Andrew Neil, Laura Kuenssberg and himself manipulated the news to negatively impact Jeremy Corbyn during Prime Minister’s Questions yesterday.

In the blog, the producer – Andrew Alexander – openly admits the BBC team were not just reporting the day’s news but trying to influence it:

“this was a story where we could make an impact”

Alexander also admits the BBC team were fully aware that their actions would influence events:

“we knew his resignation just before PMQs would be a dramatic moment with big political impact”

And expresses pleasure in seeing the PM use their actions to attack the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn:

“we took a moment to watch the story ripple out across news outlets and social media. Within minutes we heard David Cameron refer to the resignation during his exchanges with Jeremy Corbyn”

This is not reporting news.
