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

It's the £1.0m pay rise for Zoe Ball that gets me. All of a sudden she seems to be looking very attractive

If Fergal Keane is on £200k, why does he always sound so f**king depressed?

Sorry if this has been posted already
I came across a comment in one of the rags it included,
There are three bills targeting the BBC which have been tabled for a second parliamentary reading on Friday 13th of November.

- BBC Licence Fee (Civil Penalty) Bill
- Public Service Broadcasters (Privatisation) Bill
- British Broadcasting Corporation (Oversight) Bill

I checked the first one out, it seems it's true
Things just might be looking up

I notice that there is a group not included in that list.
How do they pay for their hilarious left wing attack comedians.
I'm sure I saw Kuenssberg's name in there somewhere.

And the 'impartial' victims/experts they dredge up from left wing think tanks.

Upon reading it my first thought was
"FFS Orla, for that sort of dosh, could you just cheer up a teeny bit?"
Ps.
Anyone hear Sopel do his piece Re Trump bringing Peace to the ME tonight on R4?
He'll need his money for the dentistry bill...
Those gritted teeth must've caused awful long term damage.

I heard Sopel on the 6pm news (which had a lot of glitches this evening). He's rarely sounded so subdued. All that past sneering at Trump [by Sopel] and yet he's done something not seen for decades.
The woke/liberal melt down if Trump gets the Nobel Peace Prize will be epic :)

I was listening via a pair of headphones, p*ssing myself laughing...
When asked what was so funny, I replied "I've just heard Trump actually pitch for the Nobel Peace Prize,unlike St Obama who got it in anticipation of doing f'all."

The Wokesters turned all Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. on me.

Great minds, eh!

Chuck in a second Presidential win just for sheer devilment!
 
Look at this storey:

A news piece regarding more stringent sentencing, and more relief for "spent" convictions. Both, I would suggest would have broad support in the general population, of all political leanings.

The analysis, however, is all about the back-log of cases in the courts system, all of which, of course is due to the pandemic, not politics. The correspondent deliberately fails to acknowledge the white papers aims.

Just about par for the standard of BBC journalist and journalism these days.

Lammy was just on BBC radio 2 whining about released cons not having anywhere to live, no one from the government though oddly enough.

Has Gary Lineker not got a spare room? Another virtue signalling box could be ticked.

Society writ large has become larger faster than the infrastructure it can support. Who would have thought that was happening except everyone in government since 1997.

Even more so when you remind them he actually did something positive, unlike his predecessor.

For that reason alone, I think the Nobel commitee will swerve him like Corbyn around a bar mitzvah.
