BBC Fishing For Foodbank Story

Foodbanks

The Beeb must be running out of foodbanks they can use to drive home the anti-austerity message, because one go-getting reporter has taken it upon herself to actively hunt out students who use them. BBC News’ Frankie McCamley sent the following email to the Imperial College Student Union, asking if they knew of anyone who was reliant on food handouts:

Subject: BBC Request: Student Food Banks

Student Union,

I am a reporter for the BBC. I am looking into the number of students using food banks. Do you have a food bank or are you affiliated with one? Is there anyone I could speak to who would be able to help me look into students who have to turn to food banks?

Many thanks

Frankie

Almost as if the national broadcaster has its own agenda.
