A tale of two standards


Investigative journalist Johann Hari is exposed as using unattributed quotes: Hari's punishment is suspension pending investigation by the Independent.

Music journalist Norman Lebrecht is exposed by senior industry figure Klaus Heymann in the following words:
'For me it’s beyond belief how any journalist in five pages can make so many factual mistakes. It’s shocking. Also, he really doesn’t understand the record business.'
Lebrecht's punishment is a new BBC Radio 3 series.

Whose hand is on the balance control?

And on the subject of Standards... The BBC's biography of Lebrecht is as up to date as their knowledge of his journalistic track record.
