The BBC has responded to the story that’s the talk of the British TV industry: that the government is poised to appoint the right-wing Daily Telegraph columnist Charles Moore as the BBC’s next chairman.

Giving evidence to British Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee today, existing BBC chairman David Clementi had his say — and he had an unambiguous message for prime minister Boris Johnson. He said:

“I hope the government will encourage well-qualified candidates to apply so there is a strong and diverse field, rather than putting them off by giving the impression that there is already a preferred candidate.

“[BBC director general Tim Davie] did say in his first speech that the BBC is about being “free from political bias, guided by the pursuit of truth, not a particular agenda.” He particularly went on to say: “If you want to be an opinionated columnist or a partisan campaigner on social media, that’s a valid choice, but you should not be working at the BBC.”
