PINDU goes to Parliament to bring you a podcast of the 'Reporting Racism: Journalism, and "impartiality"' event held at the Palace of Westminster on Thursday 24th October, 2019.
'Impartiality is a difficult line to toe. But the treatment of BBC Breakfast News presenter Naga Munchetty, who was found in breach of the BBC's editorial guidelines, only for the decision to be subsequently reversed, has raised questions about how journalists should approach reporting and commenting on racism and racists. It has also caused some to ask whether the BBC's complaints procedure is fit for purpose and the meaning of impartiality.'
