The BBC has issued a humilaiting apology after it admitted that captions it put up during a debate on excess deaths in Britain were “biased”.
The adjournment debate called by Reclaim and former Tory MP Andrew Bridgen were linked to concerns he has been raising about the impact of covid vaccines.
Throughout his speech, which Mr Bridgen has claimed was carefully researched, the BBC Parliament channel ran a series of captions purporting to correct what he was saying.
After complaints were made the BBC today issued a statement accepting they had acted in a biased way.
A spokesman said: “We accept there was a lack of consistency in the use of our captions and that the number posted during the speech was not proportionate, nor always relevant which created the incorrect impression that there was an editorial approach in relation to the views expressed.
“We apologise for this and are reviewing the way we use such captions during proceedings.”
