The BBC have a credibility problem.
Vocal BBC top fact checker Marianna Spring disinformation correspondent seems to be deeply concerned that the public no longer trusts their reporting.
Deborah Turness, the chief executive of BBC News, made transparency one of her key priorities when she took the job last year and recently launched BBC Verify in order to counteract fake news.

Promise to consumers
“This is our promise to consumers – we understand that their trust must be earned and we will show them how we are doing that each and every day.”
Turness told a news summit this week: “I see our currency as trust – and in a world of fake news and disinformation, where consumers tell us they find it harder and harder to trust even brands like the BBC when we tell them what we know, we’ve got to shift that and where we’ve got to invest is in bringing investigative journalism into everyday news.”
BBC Verify will consist of 60 journalists, including Ros Atkins, the corporation’s analysis editor, and Marianna Spring, its disinformation correspondent.
