Section 4: Impartiality
We must do all we can to ensure that 'controversial subjects' are treated with due impartiality in all our output.
News in whatever form must be treated with due impartiality, giving due weight to events, opinion and main strands of argument.
We seek to provide a broad range of subject matter and perspectives over an appropriate timeframe across our output as a whole.
We are committed to reflecting a wide range of opinion across our output as a whole and over an appropriate timeframe so that no significant strand of thought is knowingly unreflected or under-represented.
We exercise our editorial freedom to produce content about any subject, at any point on the spectrum of debate, as long as there are good editorial reasons for doing so.
