BBC Bias is Clear and Indisputable 247

Unless the BBC takes firm disciplinary action against Nick Robinson for this, they cannot keep pretending that the UK any longer holds free and fair elections. For a state broadcaster to show this level of venom and bias against the opposition leader is utterly unacceptable.

It is indisputable that Robinson’s history is as a high ranking Conservative Party activist. They dominate BBC News, as a plain matter of fact. They have changed the culture of the BBC so they no longer feel any need to disguise their Tory cheerleading.

This is an Uzbek style election.

    I’ve stopped paying my licence fee to the BBC as I refuse to watch their drivel. Their behaviour towards Scotland is disturbing and full of what used to be their hidden agenda. Not so hidden anymore.

    I am unable to watch BBC current affairs programmes, incuding the news any longer, due to obvious bias. Question time should be titled a party political broadcast on behalf of the Conservatives. Newsnight is the same.

    Actually, it’s not only the Tories that the BBC is shilling for. It’s also for Le Pen in the French election. There are endless positive references, endless pieces about whether she will win. You know, she is not even in the lead in the polls for the first round, let alone the decisive second, where the polls, as they stand, are clear she will lose. It is, by the way, Macron in the lead for Sunday’s first round, though not by much.

    Would the BBC dare to discipline Robinson? Over the Corporation’s head is the unspoken, but very real, threat of Tory privatisation. Personally, I stopped watching all BBC news and current affairs programmes some years ago.

    Have you seen his wheedling back peddle on Facebook? My complaint to the BBC was answered with a link to it. Here’s what he says;
    “When I tweeted earlier that people should not be surprised by Jeremy Corbyn’s approach as it was “the story of his life” some read it as being perjorative and evidence of that establishment sneering. I meant no such thing. My point was that
    the Labour leader is doing what he has done for decades and what brought him huge and unexpected success in his party. So no-one should expect him now to change his approach.
    I, on the other hand, will read my tweets twice to check they don’t read as if I mean something I never intended. What’s more I’ll constantly remind myself that this campaign is likely to produce lots of moments where people cry “that’s not fair”.”

    Don’t forget to look at the comments – people see straight through him!

      Mine had the same response, Mark. I took it as a coded ‘You complained but you can eff off’ reply. I shall be waiting for my in-depth reply. (He laughed knowingly). And I am not letting this hornet’s nest go untreated.

    This mans just integrity or lack of , was clearly highlighted when he lied about answers given from Alex Salmond three years ago . How do you get rid of such a snake 🐍, we need a mongoose of a sort . A protest outside the headquarters down in England just like the YES movement did at Pacific quay to protest the bias shown here in Scotland . Labour supporters ought to do so if only to reign him in for the n x2 six weeks .

    The BBC have become a joke, they used to be the one source of news you could trust, now they are just the mouthpiece of the Tory party.

      Most Conservatives would see it as having a distinct liberal-left bias, especially in current affairs reporting and programmes such as Question Time.

      The fact that the BBC annoys people on both left and right, each accusing it of bias towards the other, would tend to suggest that on the whole it is fairly balanced.

        “Most Conservatives would see it as having a distinct liberal-left bias…

        Well they would say that, wouldn’t they? But the BBC is stuffed with Tory grandees, stooges and sympathisers. Not “New Labour” types, and most definitely not traditional Labour (i.e. Corbyn) types.

    Wednesday April 19 Daily Politics.
    Laura Kuenssberg said: polls show some Labour policies popular by themselves “but when they come with the Labour label, the Corbyn Label, you get a very different result”

    But a recent Comres poll, specifically testing this idea, had just strikingly found that you do NOT get a very different result. Error due to bias. She knows most polls show Corbyn is not personally popular and by a wishful deduction to fit her rather well known animus she carries forward Theresa Mays policy of relentless personal denigration.

    Andrew Neil will not deny familiarity with the famous Comres poll, unless he admits culpable inexpertise. He did not correct his colleague. Silence when you know better is a form of lying. His other colleague, to be fair, may not know anything at all.


    Thanks for contacting us.

    We appreciate that you feel our coverage of the forthcoming general election has been biased against Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. We’ve discussed concerns about our reporting of this story with senior editorial staff at BBC News. To allow us to reply promptly, and to ensure we use our licence fee resources as efficiently as possible, we’re sending this response to everyone. We’re sorry we can’t reply individually, but we hope this will address most of the points raised.

    As part of our detailed analysis of this story we have examined the political challenges facing all the main parties, and questioned their representatives about the issues raised. This has, rightly, included Labour’s performance in opposition. Given the unprecedented events within the Parliamentary Labour Party last summer, when Jeremy Corbyn overwhelmingly lost a no-confidence vote among his own MPs before being re-elected by the wider party, we believe it is entirely legitimate to explore the questions that have been raised about his leadership, including whether this was a factor in the Prime Minister’s decision to call an early election.

    During the campaign we will of course report on and examine the policy platforms of all the main parties, and feature a range of voices from across the political spectrum.

    Thanks again for contacting us.

    Kind Regards

    BBC Complaints Team
