BBC bias in question (which way do they lean?)

Auntie, on this occasion, would appear to be quite keen that we are informed as to the racial heritage of this perp:

"You ain't no Norwegian bruv."

Have they pushed the mentally ill angle yet? He did off his step sister as well, sounds like a right nut job.
 
Nice of them to hand out large pay rises, whilst screwing the old gits ..

"The figures obtained by The Times and reported on Tuesday revealed that last year, 889 staff were awarded pay raises of between 10 and 20 per cent and 256 were given pay raises higher than 20 per cent, averaging a rise of £6,980 per staff member.
The pay raises are related to the 19,000 staff who work at the corporation’s public service arm and does not include those who may have received raises who work for BBC Studios, and excludes salary increases of actors and presenters. Those pay raises alone cost the licence fee payers £7.9 million, according to the newspaper, which could have paid for 51,000 television licences for pensioners.
The BBC claims it cannot offer a free service to over-75s, previously paid for through the government by taxpayers, after the broadcaster had agreed in 2015 to take on the responsibility.
The broadcaster is funded by a licence fee rather than through advertising, but unlike subscription services such as Netflix or Sky, there is no opt out or choice not to purchase if you own a television. If you watch programmes live — or download or watch BBC material on iPlayer — and have not paid the £154.50 licence fee, you are breaking the law and could be fined up to £1,000 for illegally watching TV. Failure to pay the fine can also result in a court appearance, prosecution, and imprisonment.
A BBC spokesman said that some of the pay raises were as a result of promotions or staff taking on extra work, but Jan Shortt, the general secretary of the National Pensioners Convention (NPC), told The Times that the raises were “completely and utterly” unacceptable, saying: “It’s sickening that they would consider giving these rises at a time when they are claiming they don’t have the money to fund over-75s’ licences.”
The BBC revealed last month that it planned to send “outreach” officers to the elderly to remind them that they will now have to pay to watch TV from June 2020, with concerns that such home visits would be upsetting to senior citizens.

Re the last bolded bit, any so called "outreach officer" turning up at my door will be met with a torrent of abuse in as many languages as I can remember and told to F**K Off asap!

They appear to be feverishly digging their own grave.

Jesus. We (HMG) were notified of our pay rise yesterday. 1.5%, which worked out at £400 extra a year before tax. I must buy the Guardian and see if the BBC will employ me.

Yes please - some people will say careful what you wish for, but quite frankly, this smacks of a massive two fingers to licence payers and OAPs.
It’s about time they swam in the same pond as everyone else.
 
Boris has decided to bypass the BBC and Sky who both spin things out of making any sense and goes direct to the people now on Facebook :)
 
BBC Crashing.jpg



From today's BBC UK news home page...



I love the word "crashing". But it wouldn't be the BBC with something more moderate would it?

Of course they repeat in the page in question...

Senior Tory MP Sir Oliver Letwin has said he does not support Jeremy Corbyn becoming a caretaker prime minister in a bid to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

But he backed discussions across the Commons to prevent the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal.
After Brexit and any GE that follows, Boris really needs to get a grip on the BBC. It is now so obvious that they have abandoned any pretence at neutrality or balance in their reporting, that the whole corporation need either a top-to-bottom shake up to force out the lefties and install people who will genuinely report properly, or it needs privatising and let them sink or swim in the marketplace.

I think Bojo is already keenly aware of the BBC failings, hence going direct to the public on facebook :)

Probably have to be the latter as the 'woke' society won't allow other than those 'on-message' with their lefty ideals!

No.10 and government aides, by all accounts, are grafting long hours under PMBJ and Dom Cummings' grip. With such a workload to restore order, integrity and stability, it's remarkable that the once estimable national broadcaster, and Sky, might be ranked below the likes of Facebook. Not that they deserve any better, but bloody hell.

Not even the biggest bleedin' liar in Shepherd's Bush can deny the wretched corporation's spiteful visceral bias, and worse.

I'm hoping Corbyn will stand up at PMQs and state that he has an email from Doris in Islington that using modern social media was HIS idea first.
Donald on Twitter and now PMBJ on FB are just further proof that he's a visionary and on the right side of history etc.etc
