The Noble Liar: How and Why the BBC Distorts the News to Promote a Liberal Agenda - BBC - bunch of arrses.

The Noble Liar is a study of the role of the BBC in changing the very society which pays for it. Written by a former BBC journalist, the book argues convincingly that the BBC reports on everything through a prism of left leaning, liberal, socially permissive bias. Aitken charts the gradual change of the National broadcaster from trusted informant, with a mission to “Inform, Educate and Entertain”, to a campaigning arbiter of what we should think and who we should be.

The book is divided...

I suppose in a way the BBC mirror politicians in this respect, or vice versa!

If you only recruit people who can see in black and white you will get a very limited report on rainbows.

The BBC have in the past had a presenter who could comentate on black and white snooker in colour.
 
Previously I thought that mainly Putin's agitprop outlets are manipulating facts, news. But is appears a common practice.

The links work perfectly well for me - no issues with the links.

Now I don't want you to get overly paranoid but have you thought that someone is out to get you! :crying:

Actually, monochrome is a better description. Liberalism does not permit any view but its own.

One of life's truisms:. Liberalism often ain't liberal.

I have worked with BBC perss at close quarters - that hits the nail bang on the head.

It was a cliché in News agency I was with, that you could divide the kind of report that would be produced by the various outlets.

  • Local media would give it a straight-ish bat
  • Nationals according to whatever the paper's own angle & audience.
  • BBC would ALWAYS come to a story with their own agenda - diversity,LGBT rights,Govt policy fail etc etc
