Not true in respect to the BBC.

The conduct of Robinson and Neal across social media is matched by Humphrys, Dimbleby and Marr using their publicly funded platforms on a host broadcast service to shout down pro-EU opinion.

Another institution that is no longer trustworthy was also out on maneouvres this week. With debate over Northern Ireland serving as a useful distraction, the Conservative party released on the UK government website details of how they expect to save 1billion for the NHS in 2019.

In effect, their plan to disguise possible disruption to the NHS drugs supply chain is to give pharmacists the power to alter GP prescriptions.

It wasn't easy wrestling the title ' worst health secretary in living memory' from his predecessor, but this week Hancock not only accomplished that task, but managed to violate the ministerial code by using his social media account to promote a private company. Just another day in the office for a minister in the May cabinet.

What a time to be alive .. unless you happen to be a self funded private patient, trying to absorb a 503% increase on the cost of your drugs since November 2017.

If that reality had been painted on the side of a red bus two years ago, people wouldn't be in this current position, arguing the toss over the validity of campaign promises which clearly cannot be delivered.
