BBC Lauds Hobsbawm, The Apologist For Stalin

“Radio 4 used lefty hand-wringer Simon Schama to do the honours. Result; an apology for a man who excused murdering monsters” “Hobsbawm reminds me of Bertrand Russell, the “brilliant” academic, dumb as a daisy when confronted with real life questions”.     The BBC made it sound as though maybe the discoverer of penicillin or […]

NHS underlines all that is bad about Britain, but Olympic opening ceremony lauds it

“It represents the triumph of politics over reality.

NewsNight’s two-part investigation of Muslim practise doesn’t mention Muslims!

All through Sue Lloyd-Roberts commentary, which must have lasted about 30 minutes, she talked about “ethnic” reasons, whatever that is, as if that […]

BBC thinks Syrian revolutionaries are perfect democrats

Obama reveals true colours     The BBC’s coverage of the revolution in Syria is the latest in a series of examples which shows our state-controlled broadcaster doesn’t understand the basic, ethical requirements of journalism in general and its statutory duties of balance and fairness in particular.

Hey Politicians; listen to Niall Ferguson. He’ll put you right

    Niall Ferguson’s Reith Lectures promise to be scintillating and timely, showing how the west has been stumbling economically over the last 20 or so years. We (or rather our useless politicians) have been stealing from future generations by spending money we don’t have on an unaffordable welfare state. This happens because politicians can […]
