This page describes the BBC’s (British Broadcasting Corporation) inaccurate and biased reporting on 9/11, its written commitment to quality reporting through its Editorial Guidelines and Editorial Values, and contains a sample letter that you can send to the Members of Parliament on the Culture, Media and Sport Committee asking them to meet with three 9/11 Truth activists in the UK to hear the evidence that Britain, like the U.S., was led into war on a lie. The letter also asks the MPs to investigate the BBC for its violation of its Editorial Guidelines and Editorial Standards.
This summer 160 people sent this letter to the MPs. Many of them received a response from Victoria Butt on behalf of this Committee. If you send the sample letter, or any letter, to the MPs about this BBC campaign you may receive this reply from Ms. Butt. It said:

Subject: RE: Hold BBC accountable for biased reporting
Thank you for your email regarding the BBC’s coverage of 9/11. The BBC’s main responsibility is to provide an impartial public broadcasting service particularly regarding news and current affairs content; the Committee must therefore refrain from commenting on or attempting to influence the news stories the BBC covers. These decisions are made by the BBC and the BBC Trust. It is not the role of the Committee to interfere with the Corporation’s broadcasting of current affairs.
The Committee does, however, hold an annual evidence session scrutinising the financial accounts and performance of the BBC. Further details can be found on our website at www.parliament.uk/cmscom.
