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

Tag me if you have a relevant question, as I've said a number of times, I neither "follow" threads nor for the most part scroll back through loads of pages. Good luck in the courts with the violation orders.
My case rests your Honour.

Any reply quoting a post the OP gets a notification as you well know, since you were quoted, you were notified - The question posed was a straightforward one, did you bother to listen to the audio on the Daily Mail video, the one where the Police clearly stated that the protesters were in breach of curfew? If you did, can you explain why the press are blaming both the Police and Trump for the resulting Police enforcement of the curfew for any other reason than bias on the press's part.

Notifications can be selected off or on by the user in ’Account/Preferences’ which is good because there is faarzens of 'em. If you had them all selected on, you’d have to employ staff just to manage your notifications.

Whether Gracs has them on or off though? Who knows, but he probably has ‘Notify me when somebody nobody has ever heard of posts a new tweet.' ticked.

He'll have the on, how else would he be able to see how outraged he needs to be........................and if he needs to find more tweets :)

BBC again misleading people
It's not Ibuprofen from boots as per headline and picture
" The trial will use a special formulation of ibuprofen rather than the regular tablets that people might usually buy. Some people already take this lipid capsule form of the drug for conditions like arthritis. "

I wonder what the next shortage and panic buying spree might be?

I wonder which Boris will get the blame for said shortage and which director of a large unnamed NHS Trust will be phoning BBC Directory Enquiries for the telephone numbers of pharmaceutical suppliers because they will never actually run out of Ibuprofen but yeah but no but yeah, what if they did.
 
not BBC bias but BBC WTAF...

OK Beeb: BBC voice assistant comes with accents

every technology company has a voice assistant... Alexa, Google, Siri, Bixby, Cortana... but the BBC decides it needs it own (Beeb) with a usp of



regional accents.

developing this is really good use of licence payer money. ‘Siri, play radio one' is nowhere near as exciting as say 'beeb, play radio one'.

Imagine hours of bliss listening to the voice of the BBC 2 traffic reporter in the morning....I never get tired of his razor sharp wit and side splitting one liners

Some of us don't even want their culture if that involves stabbing/shooting vast swathes of kids, dealing drugs and having to pick up the pieces after 20 odd years of rampant ignore child sex abuse!
Amfo (never heard of her) said the events in Minneapolis had reinforced a feeling among black people "that people want our culture, but they do not want us".

I treat other peoples cultures as I do other peoples toothbrushes. I am delighted they have one; just wouldn't want to use it myself.

Edited for my poor grammar.

The same people who when it suits them will cry foul over cultural appropriation.

BBC are obviously loving things in the House of Commons

Anything that can be used to show up the government is grist to their mill.

The article is not open for comment. How convenient.
 
Coronavirus contact tracer 'paid to watch Netflix'

The dear old Beeb uses its Eileen Derbyshire show (which was about to be binned until Covid came along) to get to the bottom of why a single person is being paid to watch Netflix.

Cue the medical expert (a paediatrician I believe) with an objective view...

Anthony Costello is a professor of global health at University College London who formerly worked at the World Health Organization (WHO).​
He told Victoria Derbyshire the Test and Trace system was unlikely to be picking up more than 30% of coronavirus cases and may be missing at least two-thirds of contacts.​
"That's why your nurse has not had any calls. It is not fit for purpose yet. The worrying thing is can it ever be fit for purpose? Why was it set up like this? You need speed and you need trust," he said.​
That'll be this Prof Costello then.​

I am beginning to wonder about the Labour Party and where they stand re CV-19. Initially they were saying things like it was too important for political sparring yet all the way through we have had 'experts' giving us the good news - i.e. anything that makes the government look bad. Many (most/all) have turned out to have deep socialist leanings and support the Labour Party to the extend that they don't mind being photographed for their party literature,

Now I know that there is no way Labour can stop anyone from showing themselves as socialist but this is getting to the stage whereby the Party can't sit back and say nowt to do with them.

OK, we are now well down the road and politics is now openly back in play - note today's PMQs for evidence but this has been going since the start of the crisis. Point in question of course is the 'Independent' SAGE which seems to have been set up to argue against the government regardless of any harm it may do. I still don't know who is paying for the Indy SAGE.

A very good question, unlike a lot of think tanks, charities, lobbyists who normally make clear, or at least accessible with a bit of digging around, on their websites, who funds them, odd that.

However, their political leanings, on the other hand, are established, even Guido's managed to work that out Not-So-Independent, Activist-Stuffed Shadow SAGE - Guido Fawkes

Boils down to Jonathan Ashworth being a point scoring rabble rouser who doesn’t/won’t listen to highly educated health experts.
 
Wasn't Jimmy Savile a UNICEF ambassador, or did I just make that up?
