BBC Left Wing Bias

#1
It realy gripes me that thr BBC is so left wing. I am sick and tired of its left wing agenda.

I could quote all sort of things, but if you take labours current problems and imagine how far more agressive the BBC would have been it the Tories where in power.

Do you remember how they were with John Major.

I think the BBC has a lot to answer for, with its passive attitude to the alleged coruption.

It should be doing far more invstigation into it all.

Do you agree ?

"Dear Mr *******

Thank you for your e-mail regarding the BBC News website.

I understand you have some concerns about the situation with John Prescott.

Let me assure you that the BBC do not have any kind of agenda and that we are committed in covering the most important news reports. This includes the highly publicised situation with the deputy Prime Minister.

I have enclosed an article below:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4945170.stm

On the right hand side of the article, there are several links which will take you to other related articles.

Please be assured that I have registered your complaint and concerns on the daily log, this is an internal document which will be made available to the BBC News team as well as the senior management of the BBC.

May I take this opportunity to thank you again for taking time to contact the BBC.

Regards

This was their response to me on the day the latest story about good old 2Slags broke and they failed to make a single mention. Interestingly enough as a sign of their "up-to-date" attitude they linked to a story over two months old.... No bias? I don't think so....

If you'd like to define what "left-wing" is, we might have a worthwhile debate on our hands.

Thanks for that.

This is just what I refered to.

If it had been a Tory it would not have been old news it would be top of their agenda.

Left wing is basicly -State Control- just like Blair is trying to do.

I though the old joke was Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation. As it happens I am watching the BBC drama 'The Cambridge spies, had to buy it on DVD as I missed it back in 2003 when it was on. Now of course I didn't know where the name Aunty came from, but it's in the series. It was Guy Burgess that came up with it as a pitch which landed him his job there (which in turn turned 'The Office' onto him). His radio show was a problems programme called 'Aunty's agony', so there you go, even the nickname 'Aunty' is care of Moscow :twisted: Sergey will have to tune into SIS Radio....ehum****clears throat***I mean the World Service more often :wink:

I have said before that if the 'Luvvies' had dished out the same treatment to Blur and New Labour as they did with the Tories, then the presant administration would be long gone.
Labour 'took' control of the education system years ago and spread their properganda to the young up and cumming types when they entred uni.
Most/all young folk have left leaning tendances, we all wanted Justice for other people and the world to be right and proper.
However its an hard old world, Human nature defeats these ideas, boys especicially tend to be more agressive and competative in their attempts to 'Get on', women are more subversive with their methods, but all basical (I don't give a sh1t how its spelt) all of MAN by the systems programed in from birth, try to do the best for it's self and the Working class can Kiss my ASSRE.

Mind you I do find it strange how Gates and now Buffet want to give their disgusting wealth away.
Suppose I could do on just a couple of Mill and control over a vast donated fortune.

I can vouch for that. I am a conservative, ex-soldier. But I would never dream of turning in an assignment, that was not penned in a left-sounding tone. I should imagine most of the still-serving OU students could vouch for that, too.

I couldnt agree more. Bunch of shirt lifting pinko pansies. Its a disgrace. Their failure to investigate the 'Sexed Up Dossier' only led to the sacking of an eminent investigative journalist and the resignation of the Director General. The whole bloody lot of them should have been taken out and shot.

Why oh why cant we have impartial national news service like Fox News or Al Jazira?

I had that Maggie Thatcher in the back of the cab once.

Sounds like you are just the type of Conservative they're looking for to help with policy :twisted: But seriously could it be that in your papers you know you need to balance arguments, and thus you feel it has the air of 'left' ideas?

I think you are probably write, but I think that is why a lot of the younger, more impressionable students become so romanticised by left wing ideas - socialism sounds great, in theory.

Although I was disgusted in a child Psychology lecture, when we were informed that studies show that gay families are just as effective as a hetrosexual unit! Maybe that's because no journal would publish an artical saying otherwise.

Also, the amount of anti-forces students I have argued with on the uni intranet, who really believe that getting rid of the Armed Forces would stop war! Although asking their opinons of the police, and if they think getting rid of the police would also stop crime, normally stops the 'debate', dead in it's tracks (I think Blair has already demonstrated that wouldn't work, anyway 8O ).

Been there too with the muppets at Stirling Uni. They closed the forums down eventually because some of the kids resorted to personal attacks all the time when they started losing the debate....all members of the Socialist Society for some strange reason...!

Tho' not as effective when it comes to reproduction. Mind you I don't have any issues with creating progeny with female 'couples' if you know any that would pass my selection process....brings a whole new meaning to 'two birds with one stone' :twisted:

I have been sickened by this bias for too long.

When things are reported of here in Northern Ireland I would
normally tune into RTE.
They have a much better form of reporting, while the BBC national
news seem to be totally of the Irish Republican agenda :(

Churchill - Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains

On the subject of university work, for my Environmental Sciences Degree (surprisingly few hippies) I regularly wrote pieces of work penned in a "rightish" stance, not only because some of my beliefs are more conservative than the liberal norm (but more liberal than the arrse norm), but also to give them something else to read. I disagree that the education system has anything to do with this "lefty" approach, on the otherhand I think the BBC were too worried about offending minority groups (Taleban for example, hopefully to be a soon extinct group) and are influenced by a selective few within their ranks who are pushing their own left/socialist/liberal agenda.

Cabarfeidh - of course disbanding the armed forces would stop all wars. The last slave revolt was led by Spartacus :x

UTV are just as bad. When reporting on the Northern Ireland football team's tour to the USA, their sports department gave a 30 second report which mainly consisted of highlighting a protest in Chicago by Septic plastic paddies who were moaning about the "sectarian" IFA (Irish Football Association) using a GAA ground to practice on before their game.

To rub salt into the wounds, the presenter didn't even even get the name of the opposition right. He claimed that NI were playing Paraguay, when it was in fact Uruguay. :roll:

The GAA reports of course were given first priority & also a much longer time slot.
