How much control do the ptb at ITV and the BBC have regarding the reporting of stories concerning their channels? I imagine there's quite a few people at ITV who would rather ITV was reporting its current situation.
Not quite sure what you’re getting at here. Are you saying that you think that some people at ITV would rather they didn’t have to report on the current Jeremy Kyle business? If so, do remember that ITV’s news is produced by ITN, which is a separate company (albeit owned 40% by ITV), so they can report on things at an arm’s length from ITV, as it were.
