Another Conspiracy Consigned to History

After the unbearable bullshit by the salivating loonies, comes the reality:

Production company RDF Media has accepted blame for the BBC fiasco in which the Queen was wrongly accused of storming out of a sitting with photographer Annie Leibovitz.

In an email to BBC director-general Mark Thompson, RDF's chief executive David Frank said the company was "guilty of a serious error of judgment".

He offered an unreserved apology to the Queen and to the BBC, which released a copy of the email exchange.

So RDF take full responsibility, which suggests that this wasn't some deliberate attempt to undermine the monarchy by the entirely pro-monarchy BBC. What a surprise.
