Hey BBC – Stop The Smear And Encourage Free Debate

Is the EDF “vile”? “The BBC parrots these (Extreme Right, Fascist) claims and refuses to concede that to use them shows a complete misunderstanding of history and the language”. “Fascism and communism are not two opposites, but two rival gangs, fighting over the same territory” – Rand The Labour party and some parts of the […]

BNP’s Griffin humiliated by BBC, but that will probably help not hinder

    It made sense for Nick Griffin to emerge from BBCTV’s Question Time as the victim rather than an aggressor, and he certainly achieved that, although I doubt if that’s the way he planned it.     Also not emerging with much credit were the unbearably smug trio of mainstream political non-entities Messrs Straw, Huhne […]

Will the BNP’s Griffin show his leftie credentials on Question Time?

“the BNP is old Labour with racism”     Hat’s off to the BBC! Finally, it seems to have woken up to its charter obligations to stimulate wide ranging, unfettered debate in Britain. Last week the BBC was doing it with Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician who was formally banned from entering Britain for the outrageous […]

Lack Of Balance Breached BBC Guidelines More Half-Truths Spread By BBC About Climate Change Smug, Arrogant King Should Have Been Challenged, Not Humoured     Last night’s Hard Talk with Stephen Sackur on BBC World was a travesty of a programme which kids itself it is grilling guests with tough questions.     By failing to brief […]

BBC Watchwords – Traduce, Delay, Obfuscate, Intimidate

Threat To Free Speech From BBC  Warped View Of Copyright Law Used To Stifle Criticism       The BBC refuses to respond in a forthright way to my accusation that it used gutter-press tactics to attack a local doctor, then tried to intimidate me into remaining silent by crude threats about copyright.      The BBC is attempting to […]

BBC South Today Uses Crude, Tabloid Tactics To Smear Doctor

    The BBC can truly be a malign, bullying and worrying influence.     The BBC’s operatives, when challenged, always put on an air of superiority and talk about their world class standards. Most of the time, this is a dangerous illusion, it seems to me. The BBC is a monopoly, is funded by government […]

Another BBC week; cowardice, amateurism, bullying, bias

    The BBC Radio 4 Today programme reported on Saturday morning on a “candid” and “honest” interview Prime Minister Gordon Brown had given the Guardian newspaper. Bias, amateurism Forgive me being so sensitive about these things, but nobody who has ever heard of standards in journalism could possibly fall into such a schoolboy trap, […]

BBC G20 reporting left impression Brown had triumphed; reverse is the truth

I’m never sure with the BBC. Is it biased, or incompetent, or both? Watching BBCTV’s NewsNight last night, and listening to BBC Radio 4 Today’s reporting on the outcome of the G20, were they being relentlessly wrong, or relentlessly corrupt? I can’t make up my mind. Both, is the probable answer. NewsNight led its examination […]
