Jasmine Lawrence Bias Gets Her In Trouble

Jasmine Lawrence Bias Gets Her In Trouble

Jasmine Lawrence is an assistant manager on the BBC News Channel but apparently, her bias gets her in trouble! This is because, on Twitter, she made comments that got her taken off the elections.

Whether she didn’t understand that the BBC has to remain impartial or not is unsure. Maybe she thought she could get away with it, who knows? But apparently, she is a seasoned journalist. So make of this as you will.

Basically, Jasmine accused UKIP of having sexist and racist views. However, in the run-up to elections, the BBC’s guidelines say they must not express their political views.

Also known as Jasmine Williams within the BBC, she was guilty of compromising the BBC’s impartiality (lol) or was it bringing the BBC into disrepute (lol again).

Nigel Farage, UKIP leader says “such prejudice” was “astonishing” from a senior figure in BBC News. So say all of us, Nigel.

A BBC spokesman said: “Jasmine Lawrence was tweeting from a personal account. She has been reminded of her responsibility to uphold BBC guidelines. She has deactivated her Twitter account and will now be playing no part in the BBC’s election coverage in the coming days.”
