Gilligan barred from reporting duties

Andrew Gilligan, the BBC correspondent at the centre of the storm over allegations that the Government 'sexed up' intelligence to make a stronger case for war against Iraq, has been removed from reporting duties...

BBC executives denied that Gilligan's departure from day-to-day reporting on the Radio 4 Today programme was linked to revelations last week that he sent emails to two MPs on the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee suggesting questions they could ask Kelly that would be 'devastating' for the Government.

Tisk, tisk, Gilligan. Planting questions. You are supposed to report the news not make it. Fortunately enough the Hutton inquiry is shedding some much needed light on the BBC.
