BBC to delay live broadcasts

From BBC

BBC tv is to delay Live broadcasts, censorship has stepped into realtime! the excuse of sensitive issues such as the Beslan school siege or the September 11 attacks as a reason to delay LIVE broadcasts quite frankly doesn't wash.

They are saying that even though they[BBC] receive money from the public via license fees, they can essentially edit live if something illegal was filmed by an official.... would this be edited out and used to withhold information?

Yes I think so, BBC say so themselves......
"The delay - the length of which will be left to the discretion of the editor in charge - would allow time to exclude any potential material."

"The purpose is to avoid really distressing, upsetting images that our viewers might not want to see going straight out," BBC.

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.

Blinkered - What propaganda?
