Because of the growing number of scandals over its lies, cheating, and assorted thievery and crookedness, the whackos at the BBC will now teach their workers "honesty."
Imagine this: a major news organization has to instill in their own people how to be honest.
BBC to teach its stars honesty
John Humphrys and Jeremy Paxman will be required to join Mark Thompson, the director general of the BBC, on a mandatory new training programme to teach honesty to BBC staff.
The Safeguarding Trust course is being set up as part of the damage limitation exercise by the corporation after the revelation that six children's and charity television programmes had misled viewers.
Mark Byford, the deputy director general, giving evidence to a Commons Culture Select Committee yesterday, said all employees, no matter how senior or famous, would have to attend the course if involved in making programmes.
Mr Byford, who was giving evidence with Caroline Thomson, the chief operating officer, said: "Everyone must be reminded about what the BBC stands for and what trust is."
Here is what the BBC stands for: anti-Americanism, anti-capitalism, anti-Semitism, anti-anything George W. Bush.
That's seems to be it for now - but their anti- list continues to expand. The only list that doesn't expand is their pro- list, as in pro-Communist, pro-terror, pro-Muslim, and pro-Castro and pro-Chavez.
