TO: All Key Independent Suppliers
BCC: Mark Thompson
In these worrying times I wanted to reassure you that The Corporation is uniquely committed to delivering an impeccible level of integrity, accuracy and truth.
You are the Corporation's footsoldiers delivering the highest standard of quality. And I am your humble general leading us all into battle. In the heat of the fight we must always remember that the integrity of The Corporation is at stake if we choose the easy option, or the quick fix in the edit.
Yes, I know that budgets are shrinking and demands in the digital landscape are increasing. But it is critical that we put measures in place so we can get on with the task of building a strong and independent Corporation for the future.
I will not tolerate sloppiness.
I will soon be announcing an exciting new committee that I am setting up specifically to prevent any future lapses in judgement. I hope you will all lend me your support as we move the Youth Channel forward into a more transparent and less sexed-up Digital age.
