November 19, 2012 The BBC, libel, and editorial best practice

According to significant sections of the British media, the BBC is in a period of crisis that threatens to engulf the broadcaster. But when we unpack the various strands of the “crisis”, what implications could this have for the media industry and those who specialise in public relations?

We’ll be discussing this topic from 8pm on Monday 19 November. Topics will include:

  • Jeremy Paxman warned in 2007 that editorial cuts at the BBC were making Newsnight “unsustainable”. Has this prediction been borne out?
  • Should the PCC code of best practice for journalists be enforced or updated?
  • What PR advice would you have given to the BBC?
  • Does the media risk over-estimating public interest in stories such as this?
  • Should companies whose employees use social media educate them about libel and its potential repercussions?

Join us this evening. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will go up on Tuesday morning.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics for #CommsChat – get in touch with Molly by email or Twitter if you’ve got ideas.
