THE new boss of the BBC issues social media rules for his staff as he tries to crack down on its outspoken stars.
Tim Davie, the BBC’s new director-general, has published a tough set of social media rules to stop news presenters, senior staff, and everyone in between from embarrassing the company with their social media use.
Tim Davie said presenters and journalists also risked their impartiality while earning large sums of money in lucrative outside work.
New training for staff will also be offered following the announcement that was made by Mr. Davie on Thursday, October 29.
Do you agree with the new rules? What would you like to see added or taken away?
