BBC censorship of HSBC is now getting ridiculous. I have just spoken to the news desk at the Sun newspaper who have confirmed to me that they never had an earlier front page story on today’s paper other than that below. I had already seen this on Twitter before I heard the BBC Radio 4 midnight news so I was speechless when I heard the report. They stated that the Sun front page had a story about Sunday trading.
And this is from the BBC Radio 4 midnight news review of the papers last night
The chair of the trustees of the BBC, Rona Fairhead, is an HSBC director and at the time the BBC was running an advertising campaign for HSBC.
