BBC Director General, Tim Davie, has apologized, but not resigned, yet, following the disruption of sports programmes over the weekend
Football shows were cancelled at short notice after presenters and commentators walked out in heroic support of democracy, free speech and Match of the Day host, Gary Lineker.
Lineker had been suspended after publicly and accurately criticizing the government's corrupted asylum policy.
Despite Mr. Davie denying any government pressure influenced the decision to suspend Lineker, this claim has been met with skepticism.
As a result of the disruption, Match of the Day was reduced to just 20 minutes.
This incident has sparked concerns about the BBC's ability to maintain its fake-image of editorial independence and uphold principles of fairness, openness, and balance in the face of obvious government manipulation, censorship, and control.
