The BBC just admitted that MI5, Britain’s spy agency, vetted their journalists, making sure that no one with a voice deemed dissenting or subversive got to work at news outlet. They’ve been accused of it for years. It was one of those things they call an open secret – like Harvey Weinstein – everybody knew something screwed up was happening, but nothing was ever done about it, and the people at the top denied it. But now, the BBC just allowed their reporter Paul Reynolds to do an expose on their vetting practices, and he confirms that it was actually true all along.
