||The BBC is operationally and editorially independent of government and there is no
provision for the government to intervene in the BBC’s day-to-day operations. The
government has embedded impartiality in the BBC Charter and public purposes. The BBC
Board is responsible for ensuring the BBC delivers its Charter obligations and Ofcom,
as the independent regulator of the BBC, is responsible for holding the BBC to account
in fulfilling its mission and public purposes. Alongside this, the Ofcom Broadcasting
Code requires all broadcasters, including the BBC, to report and present news with
due accuracy and impartiality.
