Update: The BBC misrepresented the Queen's Big Showdown with the Photog
July 13, 2007 08:39 AM
I am trying to follow up on earlier posts, and this one is a good one:
BBC bosses face new questions over why they waited almost 24 hours to apologise for lying about the Queen.
The corporation has admitted it "misrepresented" what happened in an encounter between the Queen and photographer Annie Leibovitz at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen was apparently shown storming out during a photo shoot when in fact she had been walking to the shoot and the footage had been spliced together out of sequence.
There are calls for the responsible official from the BBC to resign. I think it would be humanizing if her handlers would let her be angry on occasion, and ultimately good for her reputation.
