The Beeb bites back

Having had a bit of a go at the BBC yesterday over its political cowardice, I've been a bit gobsmacked to see its coverage of the MPs' vote to exempt themselves from the Freedom of Information Act.

The online coverage only gives a small hint of the way the TV and radio news has covered the story - a full-on attack. Of course, the BBC is in favour of freedom of information as a journalistic institution, less keen as on it as a public authority as Steven Sugar points out here.
