What is it with the BBC promoting political correctness?

They're busy promoting their "overwhelmingly popular" Olympic flame procession on the main BBC News at the moment.

I presume there's fuck all else happening in the world just now.

Nope, Call Me Dave was celebrating a minuscule boost to Britain's GBP and a minuscule dent to Germany's.

The Czar of Stamford Bridge will no doubt improve the pay and bonuses to his footballers, thus indirectly promoting sales of flash motors, cocaine, prostitutes, overpriced designer clothing and tasteless houses.

And believe me, the UK economy could do with the boost.

BBC News - Cameron congratulates French president-elect Hollande
the BBC claims in paragraph 2 that, hard socialist, Francois Hollande won in "a clear victory".

BBC News - London mayor: Boris Johnson wins second term by tight margin
the BBC claims in the header that, sound conservative, Boris won by a "tight margin".

Hollande received 51.6% of the vote in a two horse race. (French presidential election, 2012 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Boris received 51.5% of the vote in a two horse race. (London mayoral election, 2012 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Looks like the German media are not being good losers.

German media blast Chelsea's Champions League victory over Bayern Munich as a 'farce' - Telegraph

Typical example (my bold).

Christian Spiller, sports editor of Die Zeit, said Chelsea's right to rule Europe was undermined by Bayern's statistical dominance.

"The problem with the victory of Chelsea is not just that they won, but more importantly the way that they won. It was undeserved. More than that, actually – it was a farce. [Chelsea] may call themselves the best team in Europe, but this will go down in football history as an accident."

"Bayern Munich were, for all 120 minutes, better than the so-called best team in Europe. A week ago, as some Bayern players acknowledged after the DFB Cup final, their dominance was subjective. Not this time. The statistics list, a paragon of objectivity, reported 35 to nine shots on goal, and 20 to one corners. In no Champions League game this season has Bayern had more shots on goal and more corners than in this final – not even the 7-0 win against Basel."

He added:

"But what's the use complaining? Chelsea had traveled with the aim of having as little as possible to do with the football game. They leaned back in their rocking chairs around the penalty area – they're all a little older – and waited for the end of the game."
All together - Ah.....

To be fair Hollande was head and shoulders above his opponent......

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
