BIJ Try to Have Their Cake and Eat It

Following reports over the weekend that the Bureau of Investigative Journalism invoiced the BBC £3,250 for that Newsnight report, this morning the BIJ confirmed to Guido that they have yet to receive payment. If they have been expecting the cash this directly contradicts their claim yesterday that it wasn’t a BIJ story: “We are satisfied the Bureau was not itself directly responsible for the content of the programme”. The BIJ are trying to have their cake and eat it, either they weren’t responsible for the story or they shouldn’t be charging for it. They should donate the fee to a charity of Lord McAlpine’s choice.
