All the evidence suggests that they also think you're a st*p*d c*nt.
Now now, stop bring truth into this, this is a Remainer we are discussing who wouldn't recognise the truth if he tried!
 
The other area where Trump is constantly trashed (and, to a lesser extent, Brexit) is the BBC's current affairs-based comedy, on radio and TV. The News Quiz has become un-listenable as the word Trump is reduced to a punchline that guarantees canned laughter. Also, Jeremy Hardy gets given 5 minutes each episode to rant about something from the Socialist Worker angle. At least Mark Steel is funny, plus he knows when to stop.
Brexit is a similar target for humour, and it is pretty clear where Miles Jupp stands thereon.

.
Not just the BBC though, The Last Leg which was a brilliant take on Paralympics has become a vehicle for Hill, Widdicome and Brooker to spout left wing, anti Tory and anti Trump propaganda disguised as humour.

Good point. It's becoming lazy - just reference Trump or Brexit and don't come up with anything different.

And if Hill is unhappy about Brexit he's welcome to piss off home to Australia...just saying
 
The current propaganda is quite subtle, but involves both the stories picked, their prominence on the website and the way they are written.

The BBC is quite reliable and truthful in its reporting. They also occasionally have some quite interesting stories, for example the Stasi one I linked to. It even that story is written from a biased viewpoint. The facts are probably correct, but it's the way it is all phrased and presented.
 
Soon comedians and actors will be required to be party members. They will be supervised by a political officer.
You are correct in the general sense of reducing freedom of expression in this country. But you're seeing it in terms of old "Socialist Party" oversight. It's more generalised these days. Social liberalism is the "Canon" which (like Stalinism or The American Constitution) cannot be criticised in itself.

Bit late to this but as Hill only has one leg shouldnt that be hop-off to Australia!?

I'm glad it's not just me I thought I was becoming a conspiracy theorist. There's supposed to be balance but if all the comedians, script writers etc are left leaning the BBC should be looking to counterbalance it. I'm happy to have the piss taken on my beliefs and views but it's becoming the same one way boring traffic verging on sanctimonious lecturing and we've got John G and arrse for that;)

I agree, it's the non-news, comedy sketches etc where you see a lot of the bias.
But I don't think that's deliberate. It's just a reflection of where those people come from socially. They're usually from middle class, socially liberal backgrounds. So they probably just instinctively assume that everyone has the same opinions as them.
 
To be fair, the Tracy Ullman Show routinely takes the piss out of the triggered generation

 

At 4:18 a classic example of assuming that everyone thinks the same way. "Who even says that?"

Granted, Owen Jones is an utter lady garden, but we can't honestly lay that at the door of the BBC...

Personally I feel Jones is doing a public service every time he pushes out pontificating twaddle like this, as there must be a sizeable number of converts to the right wing every time the cretinous turd opens his mouth. For the same reason, I'm all for having him invited onto BBC political shows as often as possible (or maybe that's why we don't see quite so much of him these days?).
 
The professionally offended.
But the PC liberals always hate the working class. They only want equality for their fellow middle class.
I disagree; they want equality for all, right up to the point that the consensus goes against them. Then funnily enough, it's time for "the uneducated" electorate to be ignored / sidelined / lied to / betrayed.

Or they realise that true socialism would hit mummy and daddy in the pocket. And that would be totally, just like, so unfair, or something.
