3 little snippets from yesterday and today.
10 o'clock TV news yesterday evening.
1. The lead story was the 'Heir to Blair's' trip to India. While they interviewed an Indian about the trouble cause from our new restrictions on immigration there was no balance from interviewing working UK people living in India who say India is NOT helpful with their Visa applications. Funnily enough on Jeremy Vine at midday they had just such a person, who made jewellery in Goa, but had to leave India every 6 months to continue to stay there. So the BBC shows its bias by implyng the problem is ours and NOT India's.
2. During a clip of the Chilcot Enquiry General Jackson was shown saying something like ' at the end of the day the Army had to decide whether to carry out the political order or not'. This surely called for a follow up question to somebody as to why the Army didn't say NO to going into Iraq.
But of course the BBC wouldn't dare upset the establishment with such questoning.
Radio 4 5pm news today.
3. At around 5.45pm there was an item about the value of Reporters now we have bloggers and the internet. An Amercan was interview who was very pro 'official' main stream reporters and branded all bloggers as unknown and unreliable.
My God pot and kettle!!
The BBC news output is always bias and they very seldom give balance. As with the above news item there was NO interview with a person pro bloggers.
My opinion is clear - it is through bloggers and the internet that we get near the truth. The BBC in the main just dishes out PC left of centre bias tosh. The BBC is like an extension of the Guardian and Independent which MOST BBC types read.
