Don't worry. They get caught out being biased (oh yes they are) the other way too. Have a quick Google into the flow of BBC execs getting jobs from / with the Tories. Dismiss that and take a look at their political editor. Then Robinson's background. You'll be sending them donations on top of your license fee.

The newsreader was quoting from a report from the Office of National Statistics. Several other news agencies used the same wording. Are they all snobby too?

Don't worry. They get caught out being biased (oh yes they are) the other way too.

 

Indeed. For every accusation of BBC bias toward one side of the political spectrum, you'll find another accusation to the opposite.

Furthermore, and more generally, accusations of news bias are made almost exclusively by people who feel reports are biased against their own ideological position.

 

An absolutely neutral position is not possible. The selection of which stories get covered and which don't, and which facts are included in a report with a wordcount or time limit, means that some information and context will be left out. However, of all the news sources I regularly read, the BBC is the nearest to neutral.

 

Commercial news networks have a vested interest in discrediting the BBC as many see the BBC as having an unfair advantage due to license fee financing.

Very simple solution Scrap the Mandate, Scramble the TV signal for those without a license and require Iplayer users to login.

 

BBC actually has broadcasted a protected signal in the past and post digital switch over you would be hard pressed to find anyone with even a free view that doesn't support the technology needed.

 

 

A win win for all!

Yup, talents the Mafia would be proud of.

 

Extracting funds for pretty much sod all in return, and protecting those on their payroll from the consequences of their actions.......apparently.
