In a small article in Thusdays Daily Mail at the bottom of page 7 the following was reported:-
Fresh questons are being asked yesterday as to whether the BBC's reporter Robert Preston is being used as a Government stooge.
On Wednesday's 10 O'Clock News, the corporation's business editor excitedly reported that Sir Fred Goodwin was drawing a pension of £650,000 a year.
The announcement completely overshadowed news yesterday that the RBS had made a record £24 billion loss and that the taxpayer would have to Insure the bank against future losses of up to £325 billion. The BBC has already defended Peston against claims that he was 'acting as a instrumnet of the Treasury' over the HBOS and Lloyds deal.
Given the BBC's previous form in the matter of bias I smell a rat and believe the BBC and New Labour are far too close for comfort.
