BBC INTERNAL REVIEW RESULTS
BBC says that no evidence of bribery and phone or computer hacking in the journalists work, as emerged from a broad internal investigation. Addressing the monthly BBC Trust meeting at the end of October, BBC Director General Mark Thompson said that the findings are good: the conduct of the corporation’s employees is sound with the BBC guidelines, and private investigations are occasionally used only for “subject of significant public interests programmes” and for “surveillance and security services”. The BBC internal review was launched under request of the Leveson’s inquiry, which is investigating the UK media standard and practices. However, Mr Thompson suggested a strengthen in the BBC editorial guidelines, maybe scared of possible scandals rising from the BBC journalist conduct.
