Outgoing DG says BBC needs more diversity of opinion

Lord Tony Hall, outgoing director of the BBC, has said in an interview that the BBC needs more diversity of opinion.

He said: 

“You don’t want people who all think alike" 

and added, 

“Our job is not to take sides. We should not pander to any particular group; we should be giving everybody, whoever they are, something. We should try to be the calm centre in what is a very stormy situation that we find ourselves in.”

One is tempted to make a reference to more joy in heaven ...
