BBC re­bukes host for Trump re­mark

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

London: The BBC was taken to task on Thurs­day after it ruled that one of its TV an­chors had broken the com­pany’s editorial guide­lines by crit­i­cis­ing Pres­i­dent Trump for say­ing that four fe­male US law­mak­ers should re­turn to the “broken and crime-in­fested places from which they came”. The re­buke of Naga Munchetty — born to an In­dian mother — set off out­rage among jour­nal­ists. In July, she had put the Trump’s re­marks in con­text of racism. “Ev­ery time I have been told to go back to where I came from, that was em­bed­ded in racism.”
