To: The Chairman of Ofcom

Stop the BBC from giving airtime to organisations whose funding is kept secret.

Stop the BBC from giving airtime to organisations whose funding is kept secret.

Make Ofcom (who regulate the fairness of the BBC) compel the BBC to reveal all controversial financial backing for groups and individuals who give opinions on BBC news and current affairs programmes. If this information isn't provided refuse a voice on the BBC to these groups and individuals

Why is this important?

Many groups and individuals, often those who refuse to give the source of their funding, are allowed to air opinions on BBC news and current affairs programmes. They are rarely asked the source of their funding. At the same time millions are being raised in the USA to fund British rightwing think tanks who are frequently asked by the BBC for their opinions. As a result we, as the audience, can never know whose opinions are being represented. This undermines fair access to information, a cornerstone of a healthy democracy.
