The BBC's Charter and its Producers Guidelines state:
...'Due impartiality lies at the heart of the BBC. All programs and services should be open minded, fair and show a respect for truth? [BBC reports should] contain comprehensive, authoritative and impartial coverage of news and current affairs in the United Kingdom and throughout the world??
Footage has emerged of migrants at a Hungarian train station throwing away food and water offered to them by police.
The Youtube footage, which is embossed with the badges of the Hungarian police force, shows the migrants rejecting food packages and bottled water, throwing them onto the train tracks. Although some children appear keen to accept the food, the adults turn it down, in some cases throwing it back at police.
The migrants, described by some outlets as refugees, have been gathered at train stations in Hungary in the hope of travelling onwards to Austria and Germany. Hungarian authorities initially refused to let them through, resulting in chaotic scenes at Budapest’s main train station this week, but have now agreed to help them travel to the Austrian border.
Yesterday, David Cameron agreed to allow many more refugees into Britain following an outcry on social media over a photograph of a dead migrant child. Cameron said that Britain would take thousands of people from refugee camps on the Syria-Turkey border, but the country will not change its stance on the migrants already in Europe, especially those in northern France who have been desperately trying to cross into the UK.
Referring to the photograph of the dead child, he said: “I genuinely think and believe that Chancellor Merkel, compounding the pull factors this week, is more likely to make us see more of those kind of photographs. It is a very dangerous thing, I think, that she has done.”
It's bad times and getting worse while most everyone has to stay informed and socialize on the Internet. The elite, their alienation and hypocrisy are being exposed and called like never before, reduced by the masses they disdain. It may be a small consolation but at least they know how they're viewed and why.
...but at least they know how they're viewed and why.
For us 'dissenters' they have denigrating compartments to put us in and dismiss any logic or reason we bring to the discussion. Eventually the anger they've created will come back at them in a way they won't be able to dismiss quite so easily.
Under normal circumstances the father would have been prosecuted for endangering his family, and possibly manslaughter. It is understandable that anybody would seek to improve their economic standards, but it doesn't make sense that somebody would risk their family's lives to do so. He had been in Turkey for 3 years and had been refused permission to migrate to Canada. These were not refugees, but economic migrants trying to flout existing laws regarding their status. If the media and politicians weren't trying to twist this story for their own agenda these facts would have been made clear.

The surviving father/husband is guilty as are Euro politicians establishing the law of freebies at citizens' expense of course. Add in the lefty media and yes this entire incident has been morally turned around. People here, are describing it as one more example of the progressives' "weaponized empathy".
At present, the BBC is only answerable to itself in deciding its standards and coverage. How does it measure up to what you consider good quality, and impartial and unbiased reporting as required by its charter? All TV viewers in the UK are forced by law to pay for this 'service'. Do you believe that what is received truly 'serves' the society, - or merely increases the problems within it?
