The Ministry of Defence has withdrawn facilities for ITV News to embed any of its reporters with the army, following a row over footage of injured soldiers returning home from Afghanistan. Last week ITV News screened a series of reports examining the care given to wounded servicemen returning to the UK. The coverage angered officials at the MoD, who complained that the footage was both inaccurate and intrusive, and that it had tried to imply the MoD was seeking to hide casualties by returning them to Britain under the cover of darkness. After news of the dispute in today's Times newspaper, the MoD added that it was extremely disappointed to have been forced to conduct the argument in public. "The dispute could have been resolved in private." Defence officials contested any accusation of censorship...............they said that the restrictions were a simply a temporary measure .............................. until they are given a satisfactory explanation as to the tenor of the ITV reports. In full http://media.guardian.co.uk/site/story/0,,1930066,00.html Looks like the MoD is fighting back after being embarrassed by Media exposure of how they treat British Soldiers, some letters of support to ITV from serving or ex serving would not go amiss. Also the MoDâs press office is being even more inept than usually if they think that the Press will back off after this, they will ALL pile in now, you never do this to a major network and get away with it.
