The Marxists at the BBC commissioned a group last year to report back to them on their "bias" they have been accused of, and they must have expected that the report would whitewash their disgusting record. But the committee instead slammed the BBC as a leftwing biased institution from top to bottom.
Now, if the media had merely looked into the postings on this forum, they would see that the BBC is not just "biased" - it is a Marxist-run thugocracy.
Bias at the Beeb - official
There are some things you do not need an official report to tell you - that John Prescott thinks he is a babe magnet, that President Mugabe is not entirely in favour of white farmers and that Al-Qaeda takes a pretty dim view of the West. The report commissioned by the BBC into itself concluded with something equally blindingly obvious. It said that the organisation is institutionally biased and especially gullible to the blandishments of politically driven celebrities, such as Bono and Bob Geldof. Almost anyone in Britain could have told the BBC that for free, but maybe it’s better to have it in an official report.
All media organisations are biased and that applies especially to newspapers. But our bias is openly declared. If readers want different views they have no compulsion to pay and can go elsewhere. The BBC is in a different category; everyone has to pay for it and it is in the tricky position of being founded to be free from bias. It is meant to be a beacon of objective truth in a wildly polarised world. A tall order. In theory even rabid rightwingers and demented leftists can listen or watch (and increasingly read online) the BBC without discerning any tilt. But what emerges from the report is a picture of an organisation with a liberal, anti-American bias and an almost teenage fascination with fashionable causes. The report singles out the BBC’s overwhelming and uncritical backing for the campaign over Live Aid and now the Live Earth concerts on global warming.
Nice tale, but the BBC was not just biased in favor of "Live Aid" and "Live Earth." The BBC was one of the worst anti-American and anti-Semitic "news" networks in the world, followed by Al Jazeera, CNN, MSNBC, and The New York Times. It clearly has a bias against America, against President George W. Bush, and against Israel. It shows stories showing poor Palestinians, poor Muslims, and those who are "victims" of America, like those wonderful souls held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The BBC should be torn apart and have their news division taken over by a bipartisan group who will bring fairness and balance to their reporting. Having an Alan Johnston working for them is not a help - it is part of the problem.
