Today Programme must stop segments on 'what the papers say' to avoid bias during election

The notion that broadcasters can include regular segments reviewing the national press in a way that is free of bias and distortion is simply illogical, given the dominance of right-wing titles supporting the Conservative Party's re-election.

BBC Radio 4's Today Programme is listened to by millions of people every morning and plays a key role in setting the wider news agenda for the day. It is time the BBC recognised that the UK has a highly concentrated and partisan national press that does not reflect the breadth of political opinion held by the British public and should not be given a recurring and unchallenged mouthpiece, especially during a controversial snap election period.
