ITV royal panel show "in breach of broadcasting standards": Republic | Republic

Quote
"I will be writing to ITV to challenge their decision to broadcast what is effectively royal propaganda.  This programme appears in breach of the letter of the law and certainly goes agaisnt the spirit of impartiality rules."
 
"Having a quiz about the royals is fine, but it cannot be celebratory and one-sided.  The monarchy is a contested political institution and falls well within broadcasters' obligations on impartiality relating to current public policy and controversy."
 
"The whole premise of the show is promotional of the royal brand, even repeating the nonsense claim that the country is obsessed with royalty." 
 
"The monarchy is part of Britain's constitution, the royals are public servants who face accusations of abuse of public funds and privilege.  Only recently they have been accused of conflicts of interest and unethical investments."
