30 days of human comms #9 The BBC respond to The SunPosted: November 16, 2017
In the olden days large organisations when they came in for a shoeing by the tabloids had to grimace and bear it.
Today, in an approach pioneered and perfected by the BBC they can make their own voice heard online.
The Sun – whose owner owns a media group in opposition to the BBC – ran a frontpage piece attacking journalists who were asleep at heir desk in the small hours.
The BBC used Twitter like a fly swat to point out the areas of trust:
