Last Night's Panorama Wasn't Balanced, It Was Racist

This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism.

I've just watched the Panorama programme, 'locked up for being ill'. It exposed the problem of mentally ill people being picked up by police and locked in cells as the only solution to their mental health crisis available!

The decision of the BBC and John Sweeney to enter North Korea undercover with a group of LSE students raises a number of important questions relating to the ethics of the media. Chiefly whether they were putting the students in harm's way, but also if they'd made them fully aware of the risks involved beforehand.

Whether any of the officials who are now coming forward felt similar pangs of conscience at the time about the discrepancy between what they knew and what their government was saying is not known, but what is certain is that none of them were prepared to act on them if they did.

Phillip Schofield may want to be the next hard-hitting journalist hack but it ain't gonna happen. His place is as a warm, friendly, popular culture television presenter; we want to see him giggling uncontrollably with Holly Willoughby about phallic shaped parsnips not leading a campaign against the government.

While Panorama's merciless investigation into Newsnight and the BBC's general wherewithal through the biggest crisis in its history does the corporation great credit, everything else about this week has been pathetic. Young and often vulnerable people were brought to Television Centre, a place that should have been filled with great excitement for a TV fan at that age, and were allegedly defiled by an arrogant master manipulator.
