Dear Miss Leutgeb
Thank you for contacting us.
Please be assured your concerns were raised with the relevant editorial staff at Today, who explained that:
“We wanted to ask Cardinal O'Connor what he made of the latest revelations relating to Cardinal Keith O’Brien and the impact it might have on the Catholic Church in the UK and on the Papal vote in Rome. We felt these were important questions to pose and of interest to listeners. We felt John’s line questioning was tough but fair, and allowed Cardinal O’Connor to make his views heard.”
We felt this was a fair and accurate summation of the effect instances of paedophilia have had on the Church in recent years.
I’d like to assure you that I’ve registered your concerns on our audience log. This is a daily report of audience feedback that's made available to many BBC staff, including members of the BBC Executive Board, programme makers, channel controllers and other senior managers.
The audience logs are seen as important documents that can help shape decisions about future programming and content.
Thanks again for taking the time to contact us.
