Thanks for contacting us regarding our news output.
We understand you feel there’s too much coverage given to accusations of police brutality in other countries whilst failing to cover similar accusations in the UK.
We know that not everyone will agree with our choices on which stories to cover, and the prominence that we give to them. These are subjective decisions made by our news editors, and we accept that not everyone will think that we are correct on each occasion.
There are several factors that we take into consideration when deciding how to put together our bulletins. For example, whether the story is new and requires immediate coverage, how unusual the story is, and how much national interest there is in the story.
These decisions are always judgement calls rather than an exact science, but we appreciate the feedback that our viewers and listeners give us when they feel a story has been overlooked or marginalised.
Your views are important to us and we welcome feedback from our audience to help us create enjoyable programming for all. We’d like to assure you that we’ve registered your comments. We value your feedback, all complaints are sent to senior management and programme makers every morning and we included your points in this overnight report.
These reports are among the most widely read sources of feedback in the BBC and ensures that your complaint has been seen by the right people quickly. This helps inform their decisions about current and future programmes.
Thanks again for taking the time to contact us.
Radio 4 “Witness”-26/8/2014 there you go again, criticising China. Can’t you get it through your head that WE lock up more people per 100,000 head of population THAN China.
Why don’t you try getting into prince charles’s (£3 million per year Rent) Gulag – “Dartmoor” where all the old men in the South-West are being warehoused in the freezing winter 500m above sea-level and where there is no toilet privacy, so that the women warders peep through the spy-hole and directly watch you pissing into the toilet next to the door – not even a half curtain !
Take the plank out of your own eye before criticising the spec of sawdust in you neighbour’s !!
You are just a propaganda mouthpiece for the British Government.
