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

What about Huw Edwards. He had a face like he was sucking mouldy lemons though a piss stained **** sock.
I thought much the same, however higher command did observe that he had been up all night.....perhaps needs a bacon sandwich and a brew.

On the plus side Emily Maitless has been fairly scathing with Labour interviews.

I've been catching up on W1A on iPlayer. It really is very funny. You have to give them credit for commissioning it, but as with news broadcasters and The Day Today or the rock music business and This is Spinal Tap, they probably don't actually realise that it's parodying them.
 
And speaking of contemptible little sh1ts - again - how is that exemplar of balance and proportion Owen Jones taking the news. Seems awful quiet, but then I don't do tw@tter......
Jones has posted about 12 tweets attempting to explain why Labour lost. Nowt to do with Corbyn being best mates with PIRA, and spending our wealth ten times over. Apparently, remain supporting Labour voters in leave areas deserted Labour so Boris won, or some such crap. The guy hasn't a clue which is good news as he is influential and, if Labour doesn't learn lessons, they will be toast in five years too.

Owen is not finding out WHY Labour lost. He knows already. I would speak to former Lab voters but, no, Jones knows already:

 
On the way to the shops at Lunchtime I had BBC R2 on in the car and Stanley Johnson and some snowflake were discussing the events of last night. The snowflake was sooooo upset she had to hang up and leave Stanley to handle the questions.

After the talking bit on comes a record;

I know JV (or his producer) has form for inserting music to reflect how the studio is feeling about things - IIRC they played 'Road to Nowhere' when they were discussing Brexit. Anyway I looked on the website to see what else they'd played this lunchtime, and the 'Eve of Destruction' track somehow hasn't made it onto the playlist

Marr looked like he was about to have another stroke at about 0600. A false alarm, er, thankfully.

Stanley Johnson (or his agent) seem incapable of turning anything down. He'll turn up for the opening of an envelope. He played the part of sacrificial lamb on last night's leftie election night offering on Channel 4. He didn't aquit himself particularly well, but just took the punches that were thrown at him.

I suspect that he is something of a media whore.

When David Icke was going through his purple phase he did an interview with Nicky Campbell on Radio 1. Icke's mistake was to pre-record the interview rather than do it live. Campbell or his interviewer then inserted "appropriate" music. I distinctly remember "They're coming to take me away, ha ha".

Dear, dear Ken (Loach) is of a similar view: the fault of everyone else, dark forces railed against The True Word, semite plots, etc:

''Filmmaker Ken Loach, who backed Labour in the election, says: "I think you're right that Labour didn't get its message across, and it's disastrous because we've now got the biggest existential crisis that humanity's faced with climate change and this is being left to a bunch of free marketeers to sort out."

Asked about Jeremy Corbyn's agenda, and why not all Labour voters voted for it, Mr Loach - who says he would count Mr Corbyn as a friend - says he does not think the party's policies were "divisive".

So if it's not the message, was it the messenger?

"Maybe Labour wasn't clear in presenting it," he says, and adds: "Maybe - and I think this is not whinging - is that the whole press was pro-Tory."

He adds that, although "there will be anti-Semitism in the Labour Party", some socialist Jewish groups said "this anti-Semitism is being weaponised to undermine the Corbyn-led Labour Party".

A masterful display of Wood/Trees Myopia.

Loach is a biggoted cnut!
 
The Beeb really cannot help themselves. Just now on the News Channel. Victoria Derbyshire interviewing 4 talking heads in Birmingham. 3 out of 4 are Labour supporters with a token Tory. The 3 Labour supporters are ‘very concerned’ about how Boris will support the NHS, neatly combining their woes with a ‘censored’ report, published today which shows the NHS is failing spectacularly.
Give it a rest and please give the Tories a chance to put it right. Fair enough if they haven’t in a year or so, but we are on day 1 of a new Government ffs! :x

True. People heard the message but it was rubbish.
Loach is another well-off person trying to tell less well-off people how to think.

Not even Day 1, more like Day Zero.

Or BoJo can do the right thing and tear the charter up and abolish the licence fee, thus freeing the BBC up to do whatever they like.
 
I wonder if they will run a “100 days” programme as do on the Trump administration, such a fantastic use of the license fee?
