|The BBC Campaign Shifts into Second Gear|

Join the AE911Truth campaign to "Hold the BBC Accountable" for its inaccurate and biased reporting on the 9/11 attacks
|You can help motivate the members of the UK Parliament’s Media Committee to hold the BBC accountable for its biased coverage of the real 9/11 evidence|
The BBC allows for formal written complaints if a person thinks the BBC has breached its Editorial Guidelines and Editorial Values. Unfortunately the complaint and appeal process is slow and stacked against the person making the complaint. The BBC Executive Board can effectively deny a complaint and its appeal and prevent the Trustees of the BBC Trust from ever hearing about it. That is what happened in the case of these 3 complaints. They remain utterly uninterested and have resorted to very questionable interpretations and applications of the Editorial Guidelines and guidance to justify their denial of the complaints.
Our petition signers in the UK who are running this campaign have made a change in strategy. They are no longer asking for anything from the BBC. They are asking the 11 MPs (Members of Parliament) on UK’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee, which has oversight authority over the BBC. to get involved. Specifically the have asked:
#1) for a meeting with the Committee to present their arguments and evidence and answer the Committee's questions; and
#2) for the Committee to conduct its own inquiry into the biased coverage of 9/11 by the BBC.
The MPs on this Committee are the ones who can really hold the BBC accountable to its Royal Charter and Agreement and Editorial Guidelines. This Committee monitors the policy, administration and expenditure of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and its associated bodies, including the BBC, on behalf of the House of Commons and the electorate.
These are 2 new requests that they have not made before. Right now you can support their request by writing a letter to the MPs on this Committee in support of this request? You can do all of this through the AE911Truth website.
Please see the updated “Hold the BBC Accountable” page on the AE911Truth site for the letter to the MPs. That page contains a detailed sample letter that you can use "as is" or personalize. The sample letter says that you have signed the AE911Truth petition, so if you haven't signed it yet you can sign it on the website. It is also easy to compose an email message to the MPs and the BBC Trustees through the “Hold the BBC Accountable” page.
The BBC's Royal Charter, Agreement, Editorial Guidelines and Editorial Values make very specific commitments to truth, accuracy, impartiality and so on. No American TV network operates under such guidelines. We believe this is a unique and unprecedented opportunity to get a major mainstream news source to correct its biased and inaccurate reporting on 9/11 and even to air the scientific facts and evidence that it has withheld from the BBC viewers ever since 9/11.
If you have any questions, please feel free to write to BBC_Action[at]ae911truth.net (replacing [at] with the “@” symbol).
Thank you for speaking up!
