Bashir’s manipulated footage and unethically journalism is one of the main reasons my uncle Michael is not here today. That 2005 trial broke him. Shame on those who provided cover for Bashir. Shame on those who rewarded him. My family deserves an investigation & apology too. https://t.co/pJAO4amAum
I can think of few people better qualified to explain the egregiousness of Martin Bashir's vile deceptions than members of the media linked to lies about the 96 people killed at Hillsborough, the hacking of countless phones including Milly Dowler's & the murder of Daniel Morgan.
A day of shame for the BBC as it finally says it is “very sorry” for the circumstances in which Martin Bashir procured Panorama interview with Princess Diana. Prince William and Harry are rightfully furious about what went on. Many will say this apology is two decades too late. pic.twitter.com/MHj9FM6vZS
The BBC has tried to frame #DysonReport#Bashir as purely historic issue. It isn’t. Most institutional reasons for the cover up exist today. This wasn’t about a bad apple and well meaning incompetence. It’s vital they confront this for all who want a fearless, impartial BBC.
Tonight's Panorama was shocking - but mainly because it's taken the BBC 25 years to finally tell the truth about the Bashir/Diana scandal. They have blood on their hands because that interview propelled Diana on a path to her death. A shocking, criminal abuse of public money. pic.twitter.com/qnYR56fSDH
As I’ve been warning for years, the BBC has huge power and authority without adequate accountability, which led to many scandals including Jimmy Savile Martin Bashir and their ongoing attacks on Alex Belfield, we’re all forced under threat of criminal prosecution to pay for this
