Jasmine Lawrence Bias Gets Her In Trouble
Indeed, Jasmine Lawrence is an assistant manager on the BBC News Channel. However, on Twitter, she made comments that got her taken off the elections. Whether she disn’t understand that the BBC has to remain impartial or not is unsure. Maybe she thought she could get away with it, who knows? But apparently, she is a seasoned journalist. So make of this as you will.
Basically, Jasmine accused UKIP of having sexist.racist views. However, in the run up to elections the BBC’s guidelines say they must not express their political views.
Also known as Jasmine Williams within the BBC she was guilty of compromising the BBC’s impartiality (lol) Or was it bringing the BBC into disrepute (lol again).
Nigel Farage, UKIP leader says ‘such prejudice’ was ‘astonishing’ from a senior figure in BBC News. So say all of us Nigel.
A BBC spokesman said: ‘Jasmine Lawrence was tweeting from a personal account. She has been reminded of her responsibility to uphold BBC guidelines. She has deactivated her twitter account and will now be playing no part in the BBC’s election coverage in coming days.’
