Labour manifesto: Corbyn to unveil 'programme of hope' per BBC News

The BBC's careful choice of headline quotes strikes again this morning.

This report on Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party manifesto has the headline 'Labour manifesto: Corbyn to unveil 'programme of hope'' and 'Labour manifesto 'radical and responsible'.

Both of these phrases are from the Labour Party but if the casual visitor to the BBC news pages think it's an independent analysis then that will suit the news organisation that too often behaves as if it's the propaganda arm of the Labour Party.
