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

No, it shows the left and right are whining, selfish and self interested. The BBC has to cater for all.
Then why doesn't it do so proportionately?

One doesn't climb Kili. One walks up it.
We found it was much easier to drive a lot of the way up. Mind you there weren't any pedestrians then.
 
BBC News website front page today. Some shit about black women having to use coffee powder as make up and "Are weddings too white?"

Didn't see any MGBGT stuff, but the day is young.

Make it subscription, or shut the ****** down.

EDIT: HOUSE! Gay Indian athlete.

I've preferred BBC over commercial channels for many years. I absolutely hate adverts in the middle of programmes. How many times have you reached an important part of a film only to be told about how good bladder leak underwear is? Or how a particular brand of toothpaste will make you irresistable to the opposite sex? Or how only £3 per month will enable an African child to pay a people trafficer to transport him to the UK?

But it's [the BBC] gone mad.It is dominated by left wing, champagne socialist, LGBTWTF+ vegan tofu knitters who have no comprehension of the realities of life for most of the world.

I've watched / listened the relentless left wing homo / lesbian / trans WTF / muslamic agenda being force fed for several years.

I used to enjoy listening to the afternnon play on R4 after The Archers, but I reckon that about 1/2 of the output is nowethnic / muslamic apologist / homosexual / transgender / radical feminist wibble.

I really don't want the BBC to be eliminated, but the corporation needs to have a complete rethink about how it presents itself in the real world.
Once upon a time, and I am talking a very long time ago, I would occasionally listen to Womans Hour on BBC R4.
Mostly I didn't, because I was out doing Manly stuff like tabbing, grabbing some slipstream, or in later years, building stuff.
But every now and then I would find myself in the kitchen at 9 AM and I would listen in.

It was like listening in on a conversation you shouldn't really be hearing.
What women talk about when they disappear off to powder their noses, or gather together for tea after dropping the kids off at school.

And it was a fascinating insight into the female psyche. While very different to the interests and routines I would be involved with, there was some interesting and meaningful stuff amongst the knitting patterns and flower arranging shite.

Now, it's all man-hating, LBGTXYZ, Lefty nonsense without an ounce of Femininity involved.

I despise today's Aunty Beeb.

The Beeb continue with their agenda and make no bones about where they stand. They are going through the runners and riders and showed brief clips of the top five walking about Downing St, one major candidate missing though, Boris. I don't think he is going to get any support from the BBC, indeed I feel their reporting will now be slanted to every chink in Boris's armour highlighting the faults rather than capabilities.

BBC are probably the most biased media outlet in Britain today. Out the SWP in the shade at times.
 
Yeah, Salford's an interesting part of London.
Many a true story word spoken in jest.

Have you been there lately? I find it very reminiscent of Wood Lane and oh so proletarian:
Booths Supermarket, Alchemist posh pub, The Lowry Theatre and IWM North thing, Marco Pierre White Restaurant etc.
Rebecca Long Bailey must love the proximity of so many class comrades.

It's more London than Manchester.
 
It has been the outdoor version of the One Show for some time now. With the honourable exception of farmer Adam, it is full of identikit modern presenters, with very little knowledge or affinity to farming or the countryside. Such a shame, as it used to be an excellent way to pass an hour on Sunday afternoon.
We still buy the calendar though!
Again, it just reinforces the bias of a small, fairly privileged group of urbanites.

The story is largely pre-written, rather than there being an effort made to find out what was going on.

I ran a technology publication for a good few years, then when I stood away became technical editor. I finally quit completely when it became clear that the new editor would ask for a story on something, then would object to anything which didn’t meet his personal biases.

The job is to convey - to tell people what is happening - not to mould to your own ways of thinking. That distinction has been lost, whether it be in something as relatively innocuous* as Country File or news reporting.

If - if - we need another lifestyle show, then create one. Don’t ruin something which was doing a fair job.

All this really does is show the limitations of the people that theBBC recruits and promotes. There’s a very small set of groupthink going on.



*Actually, it’s not innocuous. Farming is important. Anthropomorphising ‘cute little’ badgers and foxes, for instance, is all very well. The realities are different.
 
Then why doesn't it do so proportionately?
It's got to cater for BAME whiners as well, its whining coverage is inclusive and widespread.

They have special "Stinks of Piss" and "Gammon" offices, I do believe in the interests of looking after the licence fees they are combining them though.

Thing is, I don't have a licence and don't watch live TV nor iPlayer. I may do in the future but, if they pissed me off enough I'd bin the licence and live viewing rather than spend hours telling everyone how cwuel and awful they are.

Spot on

No. I remember similar.
I don't want it turning back that way by the likes of Corbyn and Macdonell.

I'd also like less hypocrisy from champagne socialists like those too young to have ever known proper 'working class' areas - RL-B, Owen Jones, Ash Sarkar/Momentum but that's a bit too radical.
They need a disaffected, dissenting demographic to represent in their media worlds.
