Tom Watson response to the BBC overturning its ruling on Naga Munchetty’s Trump comments

Tom Watson MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on the BBC overturning its ruling on Naga Munchetty’s comments, said:

“This is the right decision. I’m glad the complaint against Naga Munchetty has been overturned.

“She was right to give her interpretation of Trump’s language based on her experiences as a woman of colour.

“Calling out racism takes courage. The ruling against her was wrong and I hope the BBC reviews the process that led to it.”
