# 062 WAR - BBC news.

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.

# 061 WAR - The Coalition.

It is increasingly clear as pointed out in Saturday's Daily Mail that the BBC's news reporting bais has not changed since the formation of the Coalition.

They still appear to hold a light for New Labour bending over backwards to cover their leadership contest in a favourable light and over the recent Mandleson book NEVER asking any serious probing questions and certainly NEVER upsetting any New Labourite with agressive questioning.

No - agressive questioning is left for the Conservatives and now Coalition.

As we know the Coalition faces a very difficult task and it appears the BBC sees it as its job to act as the unofficial opposition highlightening the problems that lie ahead when the cuts really start to bite and NEVER informing the public that the disasterous New Labour project is the reason we are in such a mess.

As Saturday's Daily Mail pointed out in its Leader column:-

Look no further than how Thurday evening's Question Time panel was packed with anti-coalition, pro-public sector voices for an example of this bias.

The Mail applauds some of what the BBC does. But let it never be forgotten that it is the very embodiment of the public sector ethos that state bodies and quangos always need more funding, regardless of whether the money is availableand oblivious to the fact it is the hard-earned wages of the taxpayer that are being spent.

In my opinion there is NO justification for the TV licence in its current form and as a start it should be reduced at the first available opportunity.

# 060 WAR - Newspaper bias.

As I'm sure I've mentioned before at the end of Newsnight they review the next day's papers and invariably show two of the National papers with the smallest circulation namely the Independent and Guardian while the most popular newspaper the Daily Mail only occassionally gets a mention.

Now why is this I wonder?

Oh yes many of the BBC types are Guardian and Independent readers.

So just another little example of BBC institutional bias.

# 059 WAR - Newsnight debates climate change.

Tonight Newsnight was its usual pro climate change self.

When they got to the discussion bit we of course had two pro to one (Lord Lawson) who is a sceptic.

No fierce questions for the couple who were pro.

The BBC is institutionally bias on climate change by being clearly in the pro camp.

# 058 - WAR - Question Time.

Dimbleby should retire.

In a programme pressed for time he asked 4 of the audience to speak twice which he has often done before.
