Dan Walker: ‘Just not true’ Breakfast star in fiery debate over BBC propaganda

Recently, Dan interviewed Health Secretary Matt Hancock on BBC Breakfast to discuss the current status of health and social care in the UK. Following the interview, Dan thanked the Health Secretary for his time while also insisting that there was still much to cover.b Dan said: “Wish we had more time to look at the detail of the NHS funding package and – as you said – it will be good to get you back when you have those social care plans.

“Many of our viewers are waiting.”

However, quickly after his comment, one Twitter user attacked Dan over his programme’s alleged “propaganda for the current Government”.

The user said: “Your programme and channel are becoming more and more a propaganda channel for the current government.

“Nearly ten years of Tory cuts to all areas of its governance this country is in dire straights.”
