Cliff Richard Damaged



 CLIFF RICHARD DAMAGED. Dear BBC News, our cherished "freedom of the press" does not diminish the responsibility of both press & media to protect the principle of "innocent until proven guilty". 
 
Your coverage of the Sir Cliff Richard story crossed a line, sensationalising (and reinforcing, even if indirectly) an allegation which, even at the time, was nothing more than that. 
 
The power of the broadcast image, which often illuminates truth, in this case simply sowed confusion and trashed a good man's name.  
 
Your well-earned reputation as a trusted global vioce on news is damaged whenever you engage in tabloid-tinged journalism.
