BBC Bias on Brown’s speech

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The BBC is never usually this blatant in their bias towards the ruling Liebour dictatorship but this just takes the piss.

In their reactions to No Mandate Brown’s speech they chose:

Four Liebour MP’s
Seven union leaders
Two hippies (Greenpeace & CND)

The only negative reaction was, of course, from the two hippies – everyone else was gushing at Britishness Brown’s speech.

The BBC isn’t even trying to cover up their bias any more, thiey may as well put banner on their website saying “Vote Liebour” or “Gordo the Goblin King for President”.

    John McDonnell’s there, he was critical. But as you say, the BBC seems to be promoting Labour. I’m told that on one of their news bulletins today they flashed up Labour’s logo and website address behind the newsreader!

    No one who has listened to BBC radio can doubt that it is rotten with Jock.

    Any notion that the BBC is bias need only to look at Andrew Neill. The BBC do good interviews, especially on the Today prog on BBC Radio 4. The interviews are impartial, they give people of all political stripes an even running. If anything, they are harsher on the Government of the day. Additionally, things like Newsnight are a political. Paxo is even handed in his interviews, as are most BBC interviewers. This Bias BBC bullshit is just that, bullshit, concocted by paranoid people with a odd look on life, a false look on life.

    Also, William, what is your point? It doesn’t matter where the newsreader is from. They could be from Mars for all i care, if they did a good job then i’d be happy. The BBC do do a good job, so i’m happy.

    What a wonderful endorsement for the BBC from Calum. Fortunately, other people are more pragmatic and monitor BBC broadcasts and analyse the way the BBC reports its news and carries out its interviews. These people, unlike Calum, do not view the BBC with such rose tinted specs.

    I suggest Calum checks out this website:

    I wonder what position Callum holds at the EUBC?….in fact thats a scottish name isnt it?, the EUBC are well known for how they hire staff not on ability but because they ‘arent English’, could it be that Callum is another Scot living the dream in the promised land?, either that or an indoctrinated drone that they Mclabour regime and the EUBC feed and exist on, because if you think the EUBC isnt biased against England than your either a Scot (or whatever non English)who doesnt want the party to end cos they canny believe their luck, or a brainwashed fool.

    Calum, you rightly point to Andrew Neill – but he is one empolyee among many. What matters to me is not that one person has this or that bias, but that the organisation is structured to filter out certain results.

    Neutrality and even-handedness are worthy aims, but not ones that can journalists at the BBC can hide behind. Even some of them admit a bias (Andrew Marr, Jeff Randall) but miss the point – it does not matter if there is a bias to the left or to the right, but rather that there is a bias towards state and corporate power.

    He’s a pre-pubescent member of the Liebour Party.

    Some of the presenters on the BBC political shows are good but the corporation is corrupt to the core. Did you even click on the link Calum? Four Liebour MP’s and seven union leaders – where’s the balance in that? Where are the other parties’ MP’s for a start? The BBC has been following one eyed wonder of wankistan like a lovesick teenager just lately.

    Like everywhere else in the “UK” the Scots are well over represented – R4 is the worst for it.

    ‘The one eyed wonder of wankistan’?

    How apt.

    Steve, where’s your evidence for this: “the EUBC are well known for how they hire staff not on ability but because they ‘arent English’”? Just wondering.

    I think the most disappointing thing about the page you link to, Wonko, is the fact that they’ve spelt `defence’ wrong!

    Sorry i haven’t responded to any of you. I’m sure you were all devastated. I sort of had more important things to worry about.

    I will accept that there are many on the BBC who do probably have a slight leaning towards Labour, however, this doesn’t stop them being neutral. Andrew Marr, an obvious Labour sympathiser, that is obvious from his wife and family and his personal work. However, when he was the BBC’s political corespondent he was still able to give a proper, impartial critique of the government.

    Also, i think that the BBC has a history of being slightly pro establishment. It was for many years pro tory. The BBC is impartial.

    Most of you people are unhappy simply because those on the BBC don’t all voice your opinions which are in fact a tiny minority of the British publics opinions. We have a English nationalist Marxist (probably the only in the country in Charlie Marks), a load of English nationalists, anti-Europeans, UKIP and EDP supporters. Barley representative of the British public. Most of you people hold views that are shared by very few people outside of this part of the reactionary right wing blogosphere.

    But, as the BBC don’t voice your minority opinions you dismiss it outright as being pro Labour.

    Even if they were pro Labour that would be ok in a sense, as Labour are the party who most people in the country support, hence it would represent the views of the country. (I think my last argument is shit by the way, holds no validity, but still i’ll present it.)

    You think the BBC is bias simply as it doesn’t agree eith you, and that is a shit argument.

    Calum, how dare you, I am not a nationalist, but an internationalist! 😉 And I’m not the only one. Andy Newman of is the other…

    Seriously, though – any news organisation is bound to be influenced by its ownership. Take the Murdoch press, for years hostile to Labour. When we get new Labour, Murdoch likes what he sees and hey presto, the bias switches.

    And Calum, you too are in a minority – people who won’t acknowledge that the Labour party is now the Capital party. So please, do not mock.

    Try harder Calum.

  16. Calum (183 comments) says:

    What is it i am meant to try harder at William?

    I’m not mocking Charlie. I am just pointing out that the array of views expressed by the people here barley truly represent the views of the British people in general.

    What do you mean in saying that the Labour party is now the capital party? Labour are and always have been capitalist. We are social democrats/democratic socialists. Committed to capitalism, committed to taming the excesses of capitalism. etc…

    I accept your point about Murdoch, i have never doubted such.

    I am just saying that i don’t think that the BBC is an evil bias instutition as many people here seem to think.

  17. Charlie Marks (365 comments) says:

    I agree, Labour has always been a pro-capitalist party, but its largely working class base was, at times, cognisant of the need to go beyond capitalism – indeed, Labour positioned itself as gradualist, seeing a gradual transition to socialism (“the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service”).

    Labour’s open and slavish devotion to big business, US imperialism, and the European Union have lost it half its membership and millions of votes.

    No longer is it even committed to taming the excesses of capitalism – it now glories in war and privatisation, allows big business to dodge tax whilst heaping the burdon on the backs of workers (they’re doubling the 10% rate in April!).
