The BBC: are claims of political bias justified? Part 2.

Another from the "We don't campaign" BBC

Breakfast 08:37 - Naga introduces Fiona Lamdin? piece on tech devices for kids, who (to the accompaniment of a twee piano arpeggio) began ...

"Over the last few months, 86,000 devices have been donated following the BBC's campaign"



No disapproval from me, other than their dishonesty over being afraid to call a spade a spade (surely anti-vaxxer an anti-vaxxer, Ed?), so denying that they campaign.
 
More proof that the BBC is in denial over its status among the plebs?

Talk about delusional, some of Ms Sumner’s quotes are Pravda-esque and beyond ironic.
Such as:

Sumner said the licence fee 'makes us directly accountable to the whole country’

And:

An 'impartial news provider' has an 'essential role' in serving society, supporting democracy and holding power to account,' she added.

The comments in the article speak for themselves.

Both those statements are true. Except for the "holding power to account" which is definitely not in the BBC Charter.

Neither are the other bits current BBC practice.

And therein Ms Sumner, lies your problem.

'Widely supported' does not necessarily mean supported by the majority. You can have less than 50 percent support and still be widely supported.

It's that difference between 'many' and 'most'.

It's spin, of course.

She's been coached by Nicola Sturgeon!

Especially as it draws on the answer to the specific question "how should the BBC be funded"

Not "should public money extracted at risk of a criminal conviction for non payment to pay for the BBC"

You'll be happy to know that dementia & Alzheimers are "the most widely supported" cause of death in the UK.

That simpering, self-satisfied, self-absorbed tick-turd that is Hugh Pym.

The current Covid brief and the wretch wastes time with a question querying why teachers have not been raced ahead for vaccination.

Because, you badly hair-dyed length of snot, the JCVI rejected the need to do so and follow the science which dictates the current vaccination programme.

. . . and rest . . .

It is quite satisfying when J van Tam looks like he would rip him a new one if he asks another stupid question, I find though.

Well that didn't go very well for the lovely Mr Pym. Van Tam, just showed how low the risk actually is for teachers. Teachers union will be spitting feathers.
Prof Van Tam has been one of the shining lights in this, a very clever and personable man, who also doesn't cater to idiots like Pym and co.
 
The Daily Mail are reporting on a report that BAMEs are no more likely to suffer the Honks from Covid, but far more likely to catch it due to behaviour.

Wonder if the Beeb will run that one?

If Van Tam isn't on the panel, I tend to switch it off. When he is I know I'm going to get facts laid out in accurate and simple to understand ways.

I also love seeing the trail of eviscerated journo bodies he leaves flailing and wailing in his wake. He's a god.

Surprised NOT

Look at the deaths in Africa
