‘ BBC Pulled Video ‘
The report was pulled by the BBC.
Report which didn’t meet “the editorial values of the BBC”
As soon as the report was published on the BBC website, it was immediately deleted. “ Document is not available” said the page.
The video of Ivshina’s report, released on YouTube, was repeatedly deleted, according to YouTube users.
“Video Deleted YouTube,” read the description.
The deleted page immediately sparked the attention of social media. The report itself wasn’t deleted. The bloggers and twitter users accused the BBC of censorship.
“Why are they [BBC] deleting this video?” wrote one YouTube user. “They [BBC] are standing for democracy and the freedom of speech or those who deleted the video, don’t need truth?”
On Thursday, Yan Leder, a managing editor from the Russian service at BBC explained that the report was removed as it contained “mistakes.”
He added that the report had “ imperfect structure” and “incomplete compliance of the editorial values of BBC.”
“Unfortunately in this case the report wasn’t submitted to BBC standard editorial analysis. As a result, there were several omissions [in the report],” he added.
According to Leder, the correspondent should have asked the witnesses “ in response to their accusations and include “experts’ opinion in her report.” specifying questions”
“That’s why we are modifying the material so that it would (sic) meet the editorial standards of BBC.”
Russia Insider reports: On July 23, two days after the Russian Ministry of Defense presented a radar track of a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter climbing to within three kilometers of MH17, the BBC’s Russian service aired a report by correspondent Olga Ivshina.
The report originated when Ivshina and her cameraman went in search of the field outside the town of Torez, where the US government claims an SA-11 BUK surface to air missile was launched at the Boeing 777 on July 17.
