Katya Adler Michael Gove
In September 2020 the BBC partially upheld a complaint against Katya after she sent a series of tweets on 28 April 2020 stating that an “observation” put forward by Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove was “delusional”. Gove had stated, “the COVID crisis, in some respects, should concentrate the minds of EU negotiators”.
In addition, Katya’s analysis also altered Gove’s words, changing the term “should” to “will” in her tweets. The BBC Editorial Complaint Unit ruled that although she backed up her opinion with detailed evidence and was entitled to state it, her use of the word “delusional” broke the guidelines’ license for “professional judgments, rooted in evidence”.
